The instrument cluster places the large tachometer at front and center. To the right is a circular LCD that can be set to display navigation data, hands-free calling info, or current audio source metadata.
The PCM system is able to playback MP3 and AAC files from its USB port or a connected iPod. Bluetooth audio streaming, SiriusXM radio, an analog auxiliary input, AM/FM radio, and the CD player round out the audio sources.
I couldn't help but to draw comparisons between the Boxster and the Mazda Miata during my week with the Porsche. Both are fantastic drivers' cars with great handling that suffer from poor images. The Boxster's easily twice as expensive as the Miata, but it's also a much more potent ride.
I think that I like the Boxster (and it's hard-topped sibling, the Cayman) more than I like the 911. Agree or disagree, let us know what you think about the more butch 2013 Porsche Boxster in the comments below.
