What's the used Porsche Boxster sports like?

It's hard to imagine now, but back in 1996 Porsche only made one car, the venerable 911, and it cost at least £59,000 to join the club. Then along came the Porsche Boxster and changed everything. Here was a real Porsche for just £34,000.

Those who dismiss the Boxster as not being a proper Porsche, or say that it isn't really that good, don't know what they're talking about. This is almost the perfect used car buy: absolutely stunning to drive, comfortable, reliable and it holds its value well.
