Being chosen as a winner by two separate editorial staffs who evaluate hundreds of new automobiles every year makes winning these honors even more meaningful.
Wolfgang Duerheimer, Porsche’s chief engineer and member of the board of management, was on hand at the Los Angeles Auto Show to receive both awards: “The Boxster and Cayman are cars that can proudly wear the Porsche crest. From prestigious awards to winning magazine shootouts against formidable, more powerful competitors, our mid-engine sports cars continue to set the standards in their category delivering a perfect blend of practicality, performance and emotion.”
Car and Driver’s 10Best is compiled every year by the editorial staff based on a cars quality, performance, value and driver satisfaction. Car and Driver has chosen the mid-engined Porsche Boxster and Cayman as 1 of the top 10 cars made for model year 2008. If these two were in baseball they would be batting .900 as one or both of these cars have made this coveted list 9 out of the last 10 years.
Automobile Magazine All-Stars Awards are given to a very exclusive list of vehicles that rank at the top of their respective class in performance, significance and enthusiast appeal. Porsche Boxster and Cayman were selected for a list that only includes ten winners via a roundtable voting process. “The whole point of owning a sports car is to put a smile on your face. And few can do that every day as well as these sultry twins from Stuttgart,” states Automobile Magazine.
