While the 718 Cayman GTS brought plenty to the party, something was missing. True, the turbo four was punchier than the previous generation's six-cylinder atmospheric, but there was something amiss. Power and torque figures, as important as they are, need urgency and an appropriate soundtrack to power a truly memorable sports car. Rejoice, …Continue to the full article
The 718 Boxster (or Cayman), it’s Newer- But is it better?
I had been itching to try the latest Boxster with all the controversy surrounding this car. I will be the first to admit I’m leery of change. I often don’t want to accept the latest fad or lingo.

With a free-revving 3.4-liter engine powering a single-minded machine weighing sub-3,000 pounds, the original Boxster Spyder had a lot to offer the discerning motorist.

What Is It Like To Drive Bisimoto’s Center Seat Turbo Boxster On Track?
It wasn't particularly visible during last year's SEMA show, as it was tucked away in some out-of-the-way booth, but I knew I had to track it down as soon as I heard about Bisimoto's Boxster. The trek to see it was well worth the walk, as it is easily the wildest Boxster I've ever laid eyes on. With a huge wing slung out where a 996's engine would …Continue to the full article

New Porsche 718 Boxster Spied In Stuttgart
I love the Boxster Spyder in all its iterations. The 987 Spyder was a very focused and lovely lightweight machine with very few compromises. The 981 Spyder we drove back in 2015 was sublime, certainly ranked among the best Porsche road-going sports cars ever made. Thanks to this series of photographs taken near the Porsche factory gates in …Continue to the full article
