This is excellent.

The author is a Brit and a long-term Boxster owner.

The writing is literate and the book is well-illustrated, almost entirely in colour.

Despite the fact that a Boxster comes with a suite of beautiful manuals, I've learned new and useful things from this book.

Bennett acknowledges a debt to 'Porsche Boxster Story' by the late Paul Frere, one of the great motoring journalists. I'd already bought this; and am convinced that these two books will enhance your experience of owning one of these (masterly) cars.

Firmly recommended.

I bought this book to learn about the Boxster when looking to buy one.

It ticks most of the boxes, answering many of the new user questions.

It could, for me, have been improved by including more model year data (ie what changed in which year) and also included more of the "enthusiast" modifications (like clear lights etc) which would have aided the prospective buyer and new owner with cash to play with. The book does cover a few modifications, but stops short considering the many common ones.

I feel that some of the tables (service information for example) should have been parked at the end in an appendix rather than being digested into the body of the text as this detracts from a good read and is irrelevant to most readers as servicing will be trusted to a main dealer or independant.

No regrets with the purchase, but feel the author should have got a non-Boxster owner to review and comment before release!

A handy sized book useful to any owner, or future owner, of a Porsche Boxster or Cayman. An excellent guide to these superb cars.

This is a great addendum to the manual with lots of helpful tips and interesting background information about the car. Worthwhile buying if you are new to Porsche, like me, but probably also useful to more seasoned owners. Only slight criticism is that it was difficult to see just what was going on in some of the photos.

Good owners guide to cover small projects especially if you can be bothered reading the substantial drivers manual. Would be better if it was more tailored towards the Cayman

There is an American book similar to this called 101 Projects for your Porsche Boxster. This British book mis just as good, if not better.
