    #3 It's the usual story: more performance, more efficiency - and 10% more expensive, of course

    #4 But the truth is that the new Boxster has lost its most compelling feature.

    Would that be the flat 6 howl? I'd miss that too.

    Thanks for the post.

    Your guess is as good as mine. That's an area code for telephone calls in NYC.

    4-cyl, mid-engined, sportscar, marketeering.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    The Porsche 718 from 1957 also had a 4 cylinder boxer engine.

    The new name only makes sense to the boffins at Weissach.

    It sad to lose the flat six.

    I'd still have one though.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!
