The Boxster was redesigned, with a longer wheelbase and a wider track. It gains more horsepower in both the 2.7-liter six-cylinder and the 3.4-liter engine. The 2.7-liter engine we tested is very responsive and the six-speed manual shifter is smooth and crisp. Handling is still excellent despite some loss of steering feedback and the ride is not punishing.

Just Drive One - Boxster / S by Daba R on 03/03/2013. Trim: 2013 Porsche Boxster S, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 2013 Boxster S. Drive anything else - Vette, BMW, Audi before you try one. Can't touch this performance and quality for this price anywhere. Highway / city mileage is better than advertised. Unless being pushed / driving for fun, it averages high 20s, highway is like 32 - 33. Lots of storage. Fit and finish is amazing. Handling is amazing.
Cons: The cupholders work fine, but, they are scary looking. They do work. It would be best to have a passenger if you are going to use them. Actually, it is best to have a passenger as much as possible.
Overall review: Drive it. Incredible value and performance.
