Default 2013 boxster

Is it even worth upgrading to a 911 cabriole? Damn I love this thing!

It does look great. Love the brawny air intakes, reminiscent of the C-GT. The base Boxster still needs more power at this price point. Love the Macadamia paint as well.

Ok F the new nsx. I love this car. Seriously this is the best looking 2 seater under 70k easily. Bravo Porsche.

I like it a lot, surely beats the previous models of the boxster.

Wow, what a beauty - the styling alone represents a huge improvement over the prior gens.

It would be nice to see a 3.8l version making 400+hp, but we all know why there isn't one. IMO if you want a vert Porsche, the Boxster S is the best variant short of the turbo cab. Having driven a 2010 S, I can imagine how good one of these would be to drive. Though $60k for a un-optioned Boxster S does seem a little high. (not that it was much lower last year.)

It looks very nice, but oh boy!, the price keeps creeping up.

5 HP boost over last years BS is a little disappointing, but they are probably saving that for the mid life cycle refresh. Car looks good though. The integrated rear spoiler/lip looks a bit weird though.
