Our Verdict

Does bigger mean better for Porsche’s third-generation Boxster?

    Go-faster Boxster renders the Boxster S entirely redundant, but not the slower but still sweet basic model

Excellent another Porsche review

 

Hydrogen cars just went POP

Still the best roadster available for an acceptable price, best looking too, outdone, though not outclassed, by the cheaper to own Mazda MX5.

I'd have the 2.7 over the 3.4, but I'd want a manual 'box. The Boxster is a precision tool, so excessive power is unnecessary. In fact, an engine with about 200bhp would be fine. Whilst it is a very good car, my money would go elsewhere.

[quote Fidji] my money would go elsewhere.[/quote] How can you say that, Fidji? Queen Vicky told you this was the best car available, just so long as you weren't senile. In a strange way I do miss her. However I reserve the right to change my mind, if it turns out it was a bloke all along.

I bet he (I mean 'she') is reading this and is desperate to stick his ore in. I like reading opinions different to my own, but not when they resort to insults and accusations. That's why I like the majority of posters on these forums.

I don't.

I'd love to own a lot of things in life, my own house for instance,and possibly a chimpanzee, but I'd really love to own and keep one of these for a long time.

[quote Los Angeles]outdone, though not outclassed, by the cheaper to own Mazda MX5[/quote] Yes I think that's a fair statement L.A. The mazda is 17k before discounts here, the Boxster 33.5k. Couple of older guys in my Community own MX5's and use them as 'beach cars'. Difficult to make a logical case for spending twice as much for the Porsche, but luckily we don't worry about that do we.

Err ... why have you used pictures of a Boxster S?

14 March 2012

[quote xxxx]Excellent another Porsche review[/quote] er, i think your syntax is all wrong, surely it should be 'another excellent porsche review' shouldn't it??!!

14 March 2012

Could be also "Excellent, another Porsche review" :)
