boxster 2.7

Top Gear test drives the Porsche Boxster 2.7

It’s true to say that there’s a paucity of boggo Porsches, but, as far as it goes, this 2.7-litre, 265bhp Boxster is it. It’s got optional wheels and a couple of other bits, but is more or less a basic Boxster.

Which means the least powerful engine, with the least expensive manual six-speed gearbox, and mostly passive or standard systems operating on the rest. And it just might be the best version.
