The Porsche Boxster is more serious and performance-oriented than most other two-seat roadsters for 2008, yet it's comfortable and tight enough inside to drive year-round, provided you're not in the Snow Belt. And critics almost universally praise it in terms of the very direct sensory driving experience it provides. The base Boxster makes a tempting value proposition relative to those other roadsters, but beware that heavily optioned Boxster S models can approach the low end of the 911's price range.
A new Porsche GT3 RS Orange Boxster, made in a limited number of only 500 vehicles, is the big news for 2008. The Limited Edition Boxsters get the same orange-and-black motif, along with some of the same appearance cues, as found on the race-ready, exclusive 911 GT3 RS model, plus a performance sport exhaust, black convertible top, and special Alcantara interior trim.
The mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive Porsche Boxster continues to be powered by a 245-horspower, 2.7L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine for 2008, while the S model gets a stronger 295-horsepower, 3.4L flat six. Boxsters come with a five-speed manual gearbox, but if optioned with the available Sport package it has a six-speed manual; Boxster S models come with the six-speed, but either model can be optioned with the five-speed Tiptronic automatic.
