Great Drive: 2009 Porsche Boxster S

Great Drive: 2009 Porsche Boxster S
2009 Porsche Boxster S - Porsche Sport Convertible Review - Automobile Magazine
On the ancient mountain roads of Sicily, the updated Boxster proves that it’s a real Porsche.

Like many Porsche drivers, I’ve long loved 911s but felt a bit snobbish about the Boxster. Raw power was not in evidence, the original Boxsters sporting only 201 hp. And the styling? Granted, Porsches are about engineering rather than looks – they’re like the smart, plain schoolgirl who wears no makeup because she knows that any boy who’s going to get interested in her will have to pay closer attention than that – but even so, the early Boxsters resembled bugeye Sprites more than Carreras. The Boxster may have been Automobile Magazine’s 1998 Automobile of the Year, but to me it smacked too much of the 914.
