The Brits know sports cars. They invented sports cars and they know a thing or two about what makes a good sports car. That is why Porsche UK didn’t bother with an ordinary commercial to tell them how good the new Boxster is. They took a few ordinary people down to the track, put them in the Boxster, and filmed their reaction. The look on their faces and the noises they makes as they go along work better than the most sophisticated words Porsche could come up with.
The new Porsche Boxster really is that good. And its brilliance is not just due to its great dynamics as a sports car and the performance its sweet flat-six engines deliver. It’s a great car because it’s also easy to live with. It’s comfy, well-equipped, well-built, and for the first time ever, good-looking. We think it’s better than the 991 Cabrio, mainly because it delivers 80 percent of the fun for half the price.
