Esquire has just named the 2013 Porsche Boxster as its 2012 Sports Car of the Year.
“The Boxster is a near perfect sports car,” said David Granger, Editor in Chief of Esquire. “It’s fun, aggressive and sounds great. It serves as a thrilling reminder that cars still maintain the power to stimulate the imagination.”
“Earning the ‘Esquire Sports Car of the Year’ award is a tribute to the Porsche team who designed the new Boxster,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “Just like its predecessors, it is a Porsche that continues to epitomize the feeling of genuine freedom.”
The base Boxster is powered by a 2.7L flat-six that puts out 265 horsepower, while the Boxster S packs a 3.4L flat-six that with 315 horsepower.
The Porsche Boxster, along with the seven other Car of the Year winners, is currently featured on the Esquire website at www.esquire.com.
