The Boxster starts with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 300-hp flat four,
which the Boxster S kicks up to 2.5 liters and 350 hp. Both models
come standard with an excellent six-speed manual gearbox, and both
can be equipped with Porsches outstanding seven-speed dual-clutch
automatic. It sprints from zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds,
making the most of Porsches quick-shifting PDK seven-speed
dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Boxsters handling and
steering prowess are the characteristics that most inspire our
affections. It feels balanced and stable through corners, while the
brilliantly communicative steering reacts quickly and accurately to
even small inputs. The Boxsters cabin is compact and well
organized, but drivers may find themselves disappointed in the
materials. It has the kind of plastic that can be found in far less
costly cars. But more leather is available for an
instrument-cluster cover, center-console lid, and door-panel trim
pieces. And the new GTS model brings with it some additional
interior design flourishesfaux-suede fabric is used on the seats,
steering-wheel cover, and armrests, and the GTS logo is prominently
embroidered onto the headrests. Theres plenty of space for two in
the Boxster, although in-cabin storage is seriously lacking. But at
least there's the flexibility of both front and rear cargo
