First let me say that driving a Porsche (Boxster, Carrera) is amazing. Driving these beautiful cars have been one of the greatest joys each and every day of my life. The performance of a Boxster is classic and in my opinion the only roadster worth having, EXCEPT for the problems.
There are a lot of problems with these cars and for a prospective buyer I would never buy one that is not certified. Some problems I have had in the last year - Windshield wiper motor failure, ignition replacement, lights in the interior dash stopped working, oh and the engine completely blew up without a warning light ever coming on and all fluid levels at proper levels.
Update 4/20- I will say that since I kept the car serviced and maintained at Porsche dealerships they have willingly agreed to replace the entire engine for free. I believe this is stand up customer service. I also believe they should because it was an unexplainable malfunction. I will update in 3 months to report on any problems or raise my durability rating.
