HELP! 2009 911S CPO or 2011 Boxster S CPO?

So, after 125K on my Boxster 2005, I am in the market for a 2009 911S or a Boxster Spyder 2011/2012. CPO for 2 years on both. The Spyder is awesome and tugs at my heart, but the dual character (PASM) of the 911S makes me indecisive. Help me out guys. bapcha@gmail.com or 408.799.7405 if you want to talk.

Hard to say since both are comepletely different cars. Go with your gut feelings.

If it was me and the car is daily driven i'd go with the 911s since it's more practical having a coupe. Weekend drives I'd go with the Spyder. If budget allows I'd buy both. :-)

The Spyder never appealed to me, too impractical a top. I can't count the times I've raised the top while sitting at a stop light or under a bridge because it started raining. But depends on where you live, where it would live overnight, where you'd be driving it, the weather there, etc.

The 911S is a classic. But different in a coupe versus a convertible.

Your choice. No wrong choice.
