After nearly 11 years in production, the midengine Porsche Boxster doesn’t rank like it used to. During commutes across the Los Angeles concrete diaspora, the 2007 Porsche Boxster S disappears into the ocean of cars as if it were a Plymouth Voyager. The parking valets don’t fight for its keys anymore and the car wash guys don’t feel obliged to break out fresh clean towels to dry it.
So what? The two-seat roadster remains the best pure driving machine Porsche builds.
Combining the Boxster chassis with the 3.4-liter engine’s broad torque curve results in something almost mystical — a Porsche that mixes all the best sensations of early open Porsches like the original 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder, with an easygoing muscularity and shocking level of comfort. The 2007 Porsche Boxster S is a car that’s impossible not to love — and impossible to drive without having two trunkloads of fun.
It’s not like the parking valets, car wash guys or pump jockeys can afford it
