The curves are sharper, with more creases than the previous-generation Boxster, giving the roadster a more aggressive look, particluarly at the front and sides. The large scoops just before the rear wheels aren't just for show, either: they feed the engine its air and help with cooling.
Inside the cabin, the Boxster moves even farther forward, adopting a look that's legitimately luxurious. The overall layout is similar to the larger 911. While the button layout is a bit busy to the eye, it's highly functional.
Even parked next to its closest competitors from BMW and Mercedes, the 2013 Porsche Boxster stands out. On its own, it's a head-turner.
