Best year for the Boxster S?

I am thinking the latest is the best, but other than a new one, what would be the best year and why?
How about colour for resale?

2009 and later are all bulletproof cars that will serve you well. No opinion on color for resale.

2000 "S" if you like the analog driving experience, easier to find one without PSM.

2000 of course. No reason other than I have one. Oh, 1st year of the S.

Try posting on 986 forum. The responses should be interesting.

On your suggestion, it is done.

Mine is a plain jane 01 base. It was arctic silver with a blue top and blue interior. Red is my favorite car color, even in sunny hot Tucson, I prefer black interior. Yellow is nice, too. So it's now Red with a gold metallic. And the blue interior is primarily black (changing out the carpeting is not fun.)

The 03 and later has a glass rear window--nice and easy to see out of and into. The 05 or 06 has a more robust intermediate shaft bearing and seal. The brakes on the S models tend to be better, so do the interiors. And the 04 & later has an actual glove box on the dash. The motors on the S models are .5 liters and have better power bands.

These guys all love their 5 speed manual trans. I like my Tiptronic pretty well. especially navigating in the city. I'm a retired trucker, the shifting gets mighty old.

Generally you get what you pay for. And REMEMBER!!! there's no such thing as a cheap Boxster.

Had a couple 986's. stick shift sport suspension. Nice, very much fun. Does tend to beat you up on long trip or driving around a state (michigan) that has a lot of lousy roads. Was great fun on tracks(VIR, Road America, etc ) and Tail of Dragon. Gave them up for 2010 with PDK and am in love AGAIN. Also got PSE and that helps.
