The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Porsche Boxster is one of the most fun, stylish, and luxurious roadsters available. While the performance-per-dollar value of the 2013 Nissan 370Z remains largely intact, enabling it to play with more expensive sports cars for less money, rising prices narrow that advantage.
