 Pros The 2012 Porsche Boxster S luxury coupe features attractive styling, inside and out. With a style inspired by the Porsche Carrera GT, this coupe is one of the most attractive we've seen.

 Pros In our reviews, the Porsche Boxster has an outstanding amount of power, especially in its "S" variant. The Black Edition features a powerful 3.4-liter F-6 engine that produces 320 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The S variant reaches 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds PDK and 4.6 seconds PDK with Sports Chrono option. It has a top speed around 170 mph and accelerates from 0-99 mph at 11.4 seconds with its standard transmission and 11.2 seconds with the PDK transmission. It features a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed PDK transmission.

 Pros With a starting MSRP around $65-thousand, the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition competes well with other sports cars, as it is generally priced lower. It also impresses us that drivers can save three-thousand dollars over a similarly-equipped standard Boxster!

 Pros The Boxster gracefully rides the fine line of being both appealing to one's heart and one's head. Its price, features, and style are all outstanding, yet it's still the dream car for which you're been searching. And what a unique dream vehicle it is!

 Pros Standard accessories are plentiful, as are optional features and packages. The Black Edition is sleek and mysterious, and it's loaded with gadgets!

 Cons The 2012 Porsche Boxster S Black Edition, like some of Henry Ford's early models, comes in only one color: Black. We hope you like it!

 Cons The Porsche Boxster S doesn't have very many high-tech safety features. A rearview camera, lane-departure warning system, and adaptive cruise control are absent on this vehicle. ParkAssist is available, however.

 Cons There is very little extra space in the Porsche, in both the cabin and cargo areas of this coupe. The mid-engine design of the Boxster S places the engine behind the driver and passenger, so there is no backseat of which to speak, and the little room available is taken up by the Bose audio system.
