The Wall Street Journal: From Porsche, a head-turning ‘starter sports car’

The 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S.

As scripture counsels, I am a modest person. So I have never quite shaken the feeling that, maybe, bombing around town in a flashy drop-top sports car was showing off. A bit, don’t you think?

I mean, there I am with my perfect silver streaks, Persol sunglasses and reasonable body-mass index, wheeling oh-so-expertly the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S, the snarl of this fine little dragon rending the suburban veil. Arch and artful, smart and fine, the midengine, two-seat Boxster is the company’s starter sports car (along with the Cayman coupe). Yet even after 20 years in production, the little roadster still turns heads.
