Description

One of the best ways to take in the sights and sounds of Austin and the Hill Country is with the top down in a fun car. The Porsche is fully serviced, has brand new tires, and I've added a top of the line Sony 7" touchscreen stereo with both Apple Carplay and Android auto, making it super simple to navigate and communicate. It also sports an integrated backup camera (handy when the top is up) and a Texas Tag (toll pass) installed for additional convenience. Being mid-engined the Boxster is perfectly balanced and has the convenience of both a "frunk" and rear trunk. The engine behind you adds to the exhilaration and sensation as the flat 6 winds up. The car is well-maintained and a lot of fun around town. Delivery options are available with the airport or downtown being the easiest.

Guidelines

- It's pretty easy, just bring it back the way you picked it up and there's no worries. More specifically, - No tracking, racing, or trips out of country (Mexico/Canada). Vehicle is equipped with a GPS and telematics device that has local tracks, excessive speed, driving behavior, and borders geofenced and will log and notify if taken into restricted areas. - No smoking or pets. - Premium fuel only (93 octane) for refilling. Please snap a photo of the fuel receipt and add in Turo - Only operate the top when the car is stopped. Damage can occur if you attempt this while moving.

Faqs

  • How do I open or close the top?

    To open/close the top, look for the large button that says "press" - that is the latch that secures the top to the body. There are switches to the right of the driver's seat that open and close the top. The top needs to be all the way up or all the way down and takes only a few seconds to transition to either state.

  • Where is the fuel door and what kind does it take?

    Fuel is located on the front passenger side fender. The car doors must be unlocked and you push down on one side to open the fuel door. It takes 93 octane premium fuel only. Please include a photo of your receipt showing premium fuel.

  • What's TX Tag?

    It's the small sticker included that allows . you on the tollways. There's only a few around but now you don't have to worry about it. Just let us know and we can add it to the invoice.

  • What's a frunk?

    It's the front-trunk. The Boxster's engine is just behind the driver and passenger so you both a rear trunk and a frunk.

  • How do I adjust the seat?

    Seat adjustments are found on the side and in front of the seats lower portion. You'll find adjustments for back, height, and forward/back.

  • How do I start the car?

    The Porsche requires that you keep your foot on the brake and is in park when you engage the key to start the car.

  • Why is the key on the left hand side?

    In early Le Mans, drivers did not start inside their race cars. When the flag dropped, the driver sprinted across the width of the track, climbed into their car, buckled in, fired it up, and took off. That’s a lot to manage when you’re trying to squeeze out an edge over the other teams. Porsche, in typical German ingenuity, figured out a way to speed up the process. They relocated the ignition key to the left of the steering wheel. That meant that a driver could start the key with one hand as they put it into gear with the other. That’s a small advantage, but in an event like this, it could mean everything. Trying to shave fractions of a second off when you’re racing for twenty four hours straight seems ridiculous, but if you can get out ahead of the pack, and start building your lead early, that’s worth everything. The tradition lives on today in most Porsches.
