Like virtually every convertible, the 2007 Porsche Boxster will not go down in history as a vehicle offering stellar visibility. Yes, it will get you some attention around town, but that’s not the kind of visibility we’re referring to. With the top raised, the rear window provides a decent view of what’s going on behind you, with the side mirrors aiding in the effort. However, the wide rear “pillars” make for difficult over-the-shoulder viewing. Put the top down, and you’ve instantly improved things, though the large rear hoops serve to limit the view a bit when merging, and the round shape of the tail makes it a little hairy when parallel parking and trying to gauge proximity to vehicles and curbs.
