Read Marc Noordeloos's comments on driving the 2008 Porsche Boxster S.
Yes, I too love the Boxster but I think the chassis is too good for its own good. There is just so much grip that it hides the fact that this Boxster S has nearly 300 hp. The shifter isn't fantastic and, funny enough, a little less precise than our long-term Boxster. I still would love to own one of these cars but I think I'd go for an Elise instead. It's a bit more my style. At least the Porsche is comfortable for road trips. Can't say the same for the Lotus.
