Stellar handling comes at a (high) price...by Thom Blackett
Porsche Boxster – Photo Gallery: When people think of the culture of Southern California, words and phrases like flashy, hot (in several senses), fast, overpriced, and image-conscious come to mind. Coincidentally, they’re also terms associated with the 2007 Porsche Boxster, a popular automotive staple in the land of sunshine and wannabe celebs. To be sure, drop tops in SoCal are a great choice, but after a week of testing, we came away with mixed impressions. Yes, this entry-level Porsche (if there really is such a thing) is flashy, gets attention with its looks, and is sufficiently uncommon and badged to satisfy those yearning for upward social mobility. But it’s quick, not fast, and at more than $56,000 as tested, most definitely overpriced.
