This two-seat mid-engined roadster has become an instant favorite at our test track, thanks to excellent handling, braking, and quick, direct steering. With its 2013 redesign, the Boxster gets shapely new sheet metal to go with its quick reflexes, well-finished interior and responsive powertrain. It's also more livable for the everyday grind than ever before, including a tolerable ride and one of the slickest operating convertible tops in the business.
But while it may be more affordable than Porsche's flagship sports car, the 911, the Boxster is far from an entry-level offering. Prices start at $49,500, and as is typical for Porsche, the price climbs quickly with options. Our base model with a manual transmission and a few extras rang in at $59,600 -- and our car was relatively lightly-optioned.
