Porsche BoxsterBenchmark roadster wins top honour for fourth year in a row.

The Porsche Boxster has been named ‘Best Sports Car’ at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards held in London last night.

Since its launch in 2012, the current generation of the mid-engined two-seater has built on the model’s reputation as the benchmark roadster and this latest recognition is a further endorsement of this status. Indeed, this is the fourth year running that the Boxster has triumphed at this prestigious event.

The magazine’s judging panel commented; “…super-sharp handling and wonderfully precise steering is a near-perfect recipe for having fun on British roads. The Boxster is a car that’ll make you want to get up early and seek out a quiet country road, simply for the thrill of driving. It is also incredibly easy to live with and it’s not going to break the bank either when you come to fill it up – in our real-world fuel economy tests it even bettered its official figure.”

The judge’s verdict was emphatic; “The Boxster offers the right blend of price, performance and panache for drivers everywhere.”

In addition to the Boxster scooping the overall Sports Car Award, the new Porsche 911 Carrera also placed first in the £50,000 – £100,000 category.

The road testers at What Car? observed that the 911 Carrera “remains the benchmark by which every other car in the class is instinctively measured – and rightly so.”

For over 50 years, the Porsche 911 has been acclaimed as one of the world’s definitive sports coupes. With such an illustrious track record, the introduction of a new model is always highly anticipated: and the latest generation unveiled last September at the Frankfurt Motor Show is no exception.
