While this car has impressive performance specs, you must handle this car with great care in the wet. Downshifting on rain soaked pavement feels like the rear end is ready to pass you in the next lane -- a gut wrenching experience
The Boxster has a very classic looking Porsche -- borrowing many of its styling cues from previous 911s and even the 914.

The Porsche Boxster has great performance, but can be a real handful in the wet, due to its rear engine design.
