Sports Car of the Year: M135i vs Boxster
Two cars divided opinion so much that they required one last test. Stand back, and release The Stig...

But the Porsche doesn't win this test. The issue with the Boxster is that it's actually not very surprising. It is the best roadster, and it is a masterclass in dynamics. But we expected that. We'd have been mortally offended if it wasn't. And you pay for the brilliance - you have to shell out £37,589 for a base car, and it doesn't arrive with a glut of standard kit. The straight manual Boxster we had here was relatively lightly specified, and still came out as costing just under £50k. Which is mental, when you really think about it.
