Porsche aficionados look forward to personalizing their new Porsches nearly as much as driving them
Kelley Blue Book

TheCarConnection.com notes that the 2009 Porsche Boxster is well equipped even when just the basic features are included. The options list is outstanding.

Edmunds reports that the Porsche 2009 Boxster lineup also comes standard with a "fast-operating power top (lowers in about 12 seconds), leather upholstery and a seven-speaker CD stereo." Kelley Blue Book says that the standard features on the Porsche Boxster include "an electrically-heated rear glass window" for quick defrosting. Both base and S Porsche Boxsters also include "variable-intermittent wipers w/heated washer nozzles," according to ConsumerGuide, while the Limited editions sport an "Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel." Motor Trend likes that Porsche has "filled this Boxster with myriad delights like...new sound and nav systems," plus plenty of "technical treasures."

The real action in the 2009 Porsche Boxster comes in the form of a generous options list. ConsumerGuide mentions that the available Sport Chrono Package includes an "analog/digital chronometer," as well as "controls for modification of throttle, suspension, traction control, and antiskid system." Some other highlights on that options list are "19-inch wheels, ceramic composite brakes, full leather/power/heated seats, automatic climate control," and "a navigation system," according to Edmunds reviewers. Kelley Blue Book notes that "Porsche aficionados look forward to personalizing their new Porsches nearly as much as driving them," and to appease them, Porsche offers "an extensive, and expensive, list of options." Cars.com is particularly fond of the "updated PCM Communication Management option that controls the audio, communication and navigation systems." The upgrade, according to the reviewer, is "badly needed." A USB jack is also available. This should solve a problem reported by AutoWeek, which claims that "the 'premium' sound system" is "weak in its ability to tune in and keep FM stations' signals and deliver sound quality."

Conclusion

Standard features on the 2009 Porsche Boxster are impressive—but true enthusiasts will flip for the options list.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
