Boxster honored in top men's lifestyle magazine
Atlanta. Men's Health has named the Porsche Boxster as 2013 Car of the Year, as announced in the December 2012 issue of the magazine.
The all-new Boxster, which arrived in dealerships in June 2012, is the third-generation of the mid-engine sports car inspired by the iconic Carrera GT and 550 Spyder models from the Porsche lineage. The car was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show last spring and benefits from a longer wheelbase, larger wheels and a completely redesigned interior concept.
The Men's Health editorial team praises the Boxster for its "lust-worthy drop-top" and "affordable indulgence," citing these reasons for its top spot on the podium. Fifteen contenders complete the publication's list of best cars for 2013.
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.
The Men's Health Car of the Year awards appeared in the December 2012 issue in a special Tech Guide feature. For more information, visit www.menshealth.com.
