2013 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 6M)
Review
This is my 11th Porsche with most being 911's. Always wanted a Boxster but never liked the way they looked until now. The 2013 is stunning in person and is one of the best handling cars you can buy. The base model doesn't have much low end torque so you need to keep the engine between 4500 and 7000 rpm's. It's plenty fast within that range but it brings the mpg to around 18 so you have to choose between power or mileage. You get 30 mpg as advertised with a very light foot. The handling is stupendous, cornering is quick and tight, the car feels glued to the road no matter how hard you push. My last car was a Lotus Elise, which had superb handling, the new Boxster could be better.
Favorite Features
Looks, sound of the engine (especially with sport exhaust), flat quick handling, interior, and the ultra quiet top. Ventilation system may be the best in the business.
Suggested Improvements
The electronic hand brake was described as "rubbish" in one of the video reviews. They were right. It's far to easy to get out of the car thinking it's on and have the car start rolling away.

I'm considering buying the 2013 Base Boxster. I'm curious about the wind noise when the top is down in normal highway driving. Any complaints or praise? Thanks!
