I have put almost 500 miles on my new Boxster S since I traded my 2010 Vette Grand Sport 6 speed convertible 4 days ago. The Boxster has PDK, PASM, PTV, sports chrono, sports wheel, 20 inch wheels, and all of the packages and goodies. I have owned 10 Vettes, 2 Ferraris., 2 previous 911's, Viper, and many other sports cars. The Grand Sport Vette, compared to the Boxster, is quicker and has more torque. The info systems on the. Vette, such as tire pressure monitoring, are easier and quicker to use. Finally, the fact that everything on the Vette is keyless (doors, trunk, ignition) is a nice convenience. The Boxster, like every other car that I have owned, is my daily driver and never sees the track. The Boxster is way,more fun to drive than is the Vette. Handling is fabulous and the car is so nimble over the canyons of So. Cal. The interior layout is the best of any car that I have owned, and the materials and fit and finish are top notch. Everything about the feel and feedback from the car on the freeway or in the canyons is just perfect. The Vette always felt big and, with its huge run flat tires caused the driver to fight the road. There was never the feeling of confidence given off by the Boxster. Lastly, every car, except for my Ferrari F430 Spider (F1 tranny) has been a manual. The PDK is the best tranny that I have ever experienced. My manual tranny days are over and my Porsche days could last many a year! I don,t know if the new Boxster S is as good as it gets, but it is as good as it gets for me.
