TG drives the Porsche Boxster S
Can the King of the Roadsters grow up without selling out? We headed to the Black Forest to find out...

It's a low-tech setting, but turns out to be a very state-of-the-art Porsche solution. This Boxster is all-new, and, although the proportions are familiar, the differences from the previous car are stark. The front end is sharper, as are the side intakes to feed the mid-mounted 3.4-litre flat-six, the rear dominated by a spoilerish ridgeline (the Carrera GT not a bad reference) that runs through the rear lights and across the body. It looks longer, lower, more technical. But just as neat. Which belies the multifarious changes.
