Benefits of Driving a 2008 Porsche Boxster Convertible

The Porsche Boxster is more serious and performance-oriented than most other two-seat roadsters for 2008, yet it's comfortable and tight enough inside to drive year-round, provided you're not in the Snow Belt. And critics almost universally praise it in terms of the very direct sensory driving experience it provides. The base Boxster makes a tempting value proposition relative to those other roadsters, but beware that heavily optioned Boxster S models can approach the low end of the 911's price range.

What's new for 2008?

A new Porsche GT3 RS Orange Boxster, made in a limited number of only 500 vehicles, is the big news for 2008. The Limited Edition Boxsters get the same orange-and-black motif, along with some of the same appearance cues, as found on the race-ready, exclusive 911 GT3 RS model, plus a performance sport exhaust, black convertible top, and special Alcantara interior trim.

Model Strengths

  • Outstanding performance
  • sensory driving experience
  • available interior upgrades
  • flashy Limited Edition models.

Model Review

The mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive Porsche Boxster continues to be powered by a 245-horspower, 2.7L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine for 2008, while the S model gets a stronger 295-horsepower, 3.4L flat six. Boxsters come with a five-speed manual gearbox, but if optioned with the available Sport package it has a six-speed manual; Boxster S models come with the six-speed, but either model can be optioned with the five-speed Tiptronic automatic.

Porsche Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

The Porsche Approved Certified Limited Warranty comprises two distinct limited warranty coverages.
  • 1) The limited warranty covers up to 6 years or a cumulative 100,000 miles/160,000 kilometers, whichever comes first if the vehicle is still under the new car limited warranty.
  • 2) The limited warranty covers 2 years from the date of sale, up to 50,000 miles/ 80,000 kilometers to a cumulative 100,000 miles/ 160,000 kilometers from the current mileage on the odometer at the time of purchase.
The Porsche Approved Certified Pre-owned Limited Warranty offers full peace of mind. Porsche Cars NA will repair or replace with new or remanufactured part any factory installed part that is faulty in material or workmanship under normal use. This limited warranty covers all parts of the following components:
  • Engine
  • Fuel / Cooling system
  • Power train / transmission
  • Suspension / Steering
  • Brake system
  • Heating / Air conditioning
  • Electrical Systems
  • Body
  • Comfort Electronics
Age/Mileage Eligibility 8 yrs from original service date/under 100k miles
Lease Term Certified N/A
Point Inspection A comprehensive checklist with over 111+ quality criteria is used for this purpose. This way you can rest assured that your pre-owned Porsche is in perfect condition, both mechanically and visually.
Return/Exchange Program N/A
Roadside Assistance With the purchase or lease of each Porsche Approved vehicle, the owner will receive the advantages of the Porsche 24-Hour Roadside Assistance program for the duration of the Porsche Approved Limited Warranty coverage.
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Should you wish to sell your Porsche, you will also benefit from the Pre-owned Porsche Warranty. The remaining balance of the warranty is transferred to the new owner. And this will undoubtedly increase the value of your vehicle.
Warranty Deductible No
