If you’re one of those people who jokingly refer to the Porsche Boxster as “the poor man’s Porsche”, then I’m confident you’ve never driven one. The second generation Boxster, also known as the 987, is a beautiful piece of machinery. The car looks fantastic and driving it is an absolute pleasure.
The Mk1 & Mk2 Volkswagen GTI’s are known as the true GTI’s, with the 3rd and 4th generations losing its way. The Mark 5 Volkswagen GTI is supposed to be the “return of the hot-hatch.” So when I went to purchase this car, I was excited about seeing what the hype was all about.
