Porsche Boxster Overview
Porsche's entry-level roadster is tremendous fun to drive and offers strong 2.7- and 3.4-liter flat six-cylinder engines. Both the base and S versions are offered with a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automated-manual transmission. The 2.7-liter we tested in the base model is very responsive, and the manual shifter is smooth and crisp. Handling is still excellent despite some loss of steering feedback in the current generation, and the ride is not punishing. The power top deploys quickly and can be operated at speeds up to 35-mph, and the front and rear trunks are still a bonus. Reliability has been above average. The new Spyder is the most powerful version with a 375-hp, 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine.
