Porsche claims the new Boxster accelerates to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, has a top speed of 160 mph, and still manages 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. During our sweet, stolen afternoon with the Boxster we can attest to its improved performance, but our screaming around in third gear near redline for most of the time played havoc with our mileage. Love hurts. The Boxster S delivers a 0 to 60 time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 169 mph. Those are bodacious specifications and downright libidinous on a road like the Cherohola Skyway.
