Always garaged. Transmission is an automatic with the ability to shift with paddles on the steering wheel or by using the gear shift when pushed to the left. Return car with a full tank and receipt showing Premium Gas. We will take car of cleaning and sanitizing, enjoy your trip. Edmunds' Expert Review "Although the 2012 Porsche Boxster represents the end of the current generation, it still remains one of the best roadsters on the road. Vehicle overview Since its introduction in 1997, the Porsche Boxster has been the go-to choice for higher-performing roadsters. As this second-generation 2012 Porsche Boxster takes the stage for a final bow (an all-new model debuts next year), this two-seat drop top retains all of the charm, excitement and Porsche goodness that has kept it at the top of our list. With a horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine mounted in the middle of the car (rather than the iconic Porsche 911's rear-mounted design), the Boxster enjoys a wonderfully balanced chassis that provides tack-sharp handling. A choice of two distinct engines and special models like the Spyder and Black Edition should serve to broaden the Boxster's appeal. As one would expect from any vehicle emblazoned with the Porsche shield, the 2012 Boxster surrounds the driver and passenger in a premium cockpit with admirable materials and craftsmanship." * * * Motor Trend: 2.9-liter 255-hp and 214 lb-ft of torque F-6 "As can be expected in any car designed to handle the high speeds of the German Autobahn, safety was a concern for Porsche with the 2012 Boxster lineup. The 2012 Boxster includes six airbags including a front driver and front passenger airbag, and door-mounted side-curtain airbags for extra safety. Some other standard safety amenities on the 2012 Porsche Boxster include anti-lock brakes, traction control, and electronic stability control. Even with six airbags squeezed into a roadster, the Porsche Boxster still tips the scales at less than 3000 lbs. in its lightest form. Boxster: 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway (manual); 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway (dual-clutch auto)" Rewarding drive Fantastic fuel economy for its class Excellent driver's car * * * 2021- JVC/Kenwood radio with bluetooth, Android or Apple plug in with charging through USB port, GPS through your phone. 200 watt amp.

I surprised my husband with this car for his birthday and it was a hit! We met David at the AVL airport and he gave us a quick tutorial about the car and all the bells and whistles. We drove off and headed to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a beautiful, scenic drive. We had to drive our son to work but he felt like star getting dropped off in the Boxter! The car ran great and we had fabulous time! Five stars all the way around!

I wanted to rent this car for a long time for a potential purchase. My son and I took the car to Craggy Gardens and Little Switzerland on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which was easy due to David's location. The car was in great shape with no loose or cracked interior pieces like many other rentals on Turo. Handling was so balanced with no blank spots on the steering. The chassis was quite comfortable as far as going over bumps and cracked pavement. Decent exhaust note under acceleration, and good visibility even top up. The windshield has an unobtrusive angle and the dash was not miles deep, so I felt more connected to the car. A narrower car compared to a Jaguar F Type. Very little drama compared to cars like the Alfa Romero 4C and Ferrari 458 Italia. The car felt stable and gave the impression of solidity. The Boxster feels special even going from light to light, and once underway the steering is so good one needs few corrections if any to maintain one's line on a corner. The follow through on turns stays with you long after the drive is done and was oddly enough similar to being fully immersed in a good video game.
David was a great host, with clear and fast communication. It was apparent that he keeps this car in excellent running condition. He was very accommodating and let me keep my vehicle at his place, which is important if you don't have another driver. In all, a great choice of host and car if you are looking for a memorable experience
