Porsche's entry-level Boxster gets a 2013 model year refresh with more-muscular looks, a much more luxurious interior, and handling that rivals (but doesn't quite upstage) its stablemate: the Porsche 911.
The good: The 2013 Porsche Boxster is a fantastically well-balanced vehicle, offering the right amount of power, responsiveness, and grip for a grin-inducing ride. Optional PCM infotainment system checks all of the right tech boxes. The power retractable top is well designed and can be operated at up to 31 mph.
The bad: Fold-away cupholders are among the worst in the business. Expensive options rapidly drive the Boxter's price up.
The bottom line: The 2013 Porsche Boxster delivers fantastically balanced performance and full-featured tech, but avoid expensive luxury items for the best value.
