The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Stylish, fun, and capable, the 2012 Porsche Boxster is one of the best roadsters around. The 2012 Audi TT gets a burst of testosterone and sports-car cred with a bold new TT RS model; otherwise it's a surprisingly well-rounded (and economical) performer.
