It’s hard to believe that it has been over 20 years since Porsche introduced the original Boxster. The 2013 model year was a completely new vehicle with only the engine and gearbox carried over from the previous model. No longer seen as a “poor man’s 911”, the Boxster is an extremely capable sports car in its own right. The mid-engine set-up provides almost perfect 50/50 weight distribution delivering dynamic handling that is just as happy on a track as it is on your daily commute. The Boxster exterior styling has evolved as well with a more refined, low-slung profile that looks good with the roof up or down. But to really appreciate the Boxster attributes, put down the roof, find a winding stretch of road and listen to the sound of its exquisite Porsche 6-cylinder engine. If you’re not into the technical reasons why the Boxster is a winner, you will certainly appreciate its low-slung sports car looks. So, if you need to convince your accountant that the Porsche Boxster is the car for you, just point to the fact that it won the Canadian Black Book 2017 Best Retained Value Award.
