2011 Porsche Boxster / Cayman - 10Best Cars
From Car & Driver Magazine
Enthusiasts know that the Boxster and the Cayman are blessed with a mechanical arrangement that yields better driving dynamics than the rear-engined 911. In a lineup whose purity is diluted by the brisk-selling Cayenne and Panamera, the Cayman and the Boxster still exemplify, even heighten, classic Porsche values such as a flat-sixs raspy purr, steering thats telepathic, and brakes that can almost stop the Earths rotation. Raw performance numbers are impressive in either standard or S trim, but behind the wheel of a Boxster or a Cayman, you forget the numbers and simply enjoy the connection to the road. Nowhere is this more true than in the Boxster Spyder, a car barely quicker and a bit less useful than the standard Boxster but even more vivacious. Thats why we named it the best-handling car in America for less than $100,000. Were surprised that, in a world of endless 3-series and Accord clones, no automaker has tried to copy the little Porsches formula. But we arent surprised that the Boxster and the Cayman are on this list again.
