If you had to trade your boxster

What car would you trade your boxster for? A realistic trade, something within its price range.

Wouldn't mind trying a Cayman but I can't afford another Raby engine ! So I will stick with the beast .

Most likely, another Boxster. Best sports car I've ever owned. Still as much fun as the day I bought it 9 years ago.

Thing is, the few times I've considered selling mine and buying another, one of my major reluctances is getting rid of the known for the unknown.

Easy, Boxster worth 2-10k, nothing in that price range comes to mind as being equally fun and I have other fun, cheap cars that have their own attributes but just not parting with the Boxster till I step up to a newer one, maybe.

Same value? ND Miata

Trading up? 2017 Land Cruiser or maybe a Lexus LC500

Trading down? NC Miata

'09 Cayman S, with sports chrono, and PDK transmission with paddle shifters.

And I'm referring to a car that wouldn't break the bank.

Just sayin'..................

No Trade
No Sell
My Roadster

Silly idea. Wouldn't even trade my boxster for a Lambo that needs a $25k clutch pack.

Box is staying in the family here, priceless little fun car man

My thoughts exactly!

But since the price is way above the boxster, I'm never parting with her. The 996TT/GT3 will become her brother instead

If you had to trade your boxster

Boxster is best value for money. Even trade with anything else would be a downgrade.
