2017 Porsche 718 Boxster
The manufacturer has recently reintroduced its entry-level sports car as the Porsche 718 Boxster ($57,050), retaining the shape, purpose, and ethos of the Boxster, but substituting a four-cylinder engine for the classic flat six. With Porsche, however, there is no substitute, so the fantastic six-speed manual (and amazing steering feel) remain in the renamed 718 Boxster.
