The Porsche Boxster is surely here to stay as evidenced by its success, critics’ raves and the fact that Porsche has done it up even better than before with an early taste of their all-new 2013 Porsche Boxster. Though the reworking is nothing earth-shattering, the sheetmetal is clearly an upgrade. It’s downright gorgeous in our opinion, especially that long and tall side air intake. Very Carrera GT. Plus the headlamps and taillights look far better than the last generation Boxster, the track is wider and the wheelbase has been extended. The base Boxster will have a 2.7 liter flat six with 265 horses and the S will belt out 315 hp with its 3.4 liter flat six. Don’t ignore the interior, either, with a similar layout to the new 911. And thank the Germans for keeping the manual gearboxes for both. We’re so old-school.
