Slayer, sounds like you are not financially strapped if you could afford a new one on your own.

Buy an 2004 S certified pre-owned Porsche warrantied Boxster if you can talk your mother into it. Then you'll have lots of warranty on the car and you will absolutely love driving it. If she's kicking in 30k or more, then buy a 2005 S and get the redesigned car, which I hear is much nicer all the way around with a zillion little improvements and a couple of big ones. If cash isn't your main concern, then shy away from the non-S cars as you'll wish you had bought an S later. Few don't regret buying the larger engine.

Just remember to be careful driving any sports car that is as small and powerful as a Boxster.
