2013 Porsche Boxster
For about what you'd pay for a fully loaded luxury sedan, you could toss your dad the keys to a Porsche Boxster. Not that there's anything wrong with luxurious, big sedans, but I've yet to meet one that's as much fun as a roadster. The new 2013 model is one of the best handling cars on the road today and how has a muscular, new design to back up its performance pedigree.
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.
