OK, I'll offer a contrarian view: if your wife is going back to school and money is tight, don't buy a Porsche. The sensible thing to do is to buy something reliable, and when your bride is out of school and employed, then get your first Porsche. Owners on this forum regularly report spending $1K to $2K every year on maintenance (that has not been my experience, BTW), and there is always the small chance of something (IMSB) blowing up and putting a major dent in your wallet.

I love my Boxster, and it's been wonderful. But I'm at a point in my life where if the engine were to blow up tomorrow, I'd be sorely disappointed, but I could afford to buy a replacement engine and not lose sleep over it.

Just my $ .02
