Boxster makes coveted 10Best List
Atlanta. The Porsche Boxster has once again been selected for Car and Driver magazine's list of the 10Best cars sold in America. This year marks the 12th time in 14 years that either a Boxster or Cayman model has been selected for this honor, which was announced during the press days of the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
The all-new, third-generation Boxster was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March and has been on sale in the U.S. for nearly five months. This year, the car was completely redesigned and is lighter, more powerful and more fuel efficient. It also features a longer wheelbase, larger wheels and a completely redesigned interior concept.
The Car and Driver 10Best list is compiled each year by the magazine's editorial staff and focuses on a car's quality, performance, value and driver satisfaction. To be considered, all cars must fall under the base price cap of $80,000 and be on sale in January 2013.
The Porsche Boxster remains a top competitor in the luxury mid-engine segment. This year, Porsche has sold 2,519 Boxster models in the U.S., an increase of 45 percent over last year over the same period when 1,735 cars were sold.
