Well the boxster is definitely a "real" sports car. Light weight and nimble. The handling is extraordinary. The steering is the best I have ever experienced. The chassis structure is second to none for a convertible. Very solid. Gas mileage is good.

The seats are only fair in the Spyder. I have the sport seats which are exactly the same as my 911 turbo. The are not that good IMHO.

The M3 seats are great. The engine is great. The gas mileage is terrible which makes the real problem being the range.

DCT is amazing. Much better than PDK (which is why I got my Spyder with a 6 speed).
