M135i vs Boxster S Sportscar of the Year

I cannot buy the Top Gear mag where I live.

I know the M135i won. Porsche forum are dismissing the article, but it is not posted there either.

Can someone copy article and post so I can read it?

I am excited to read it, and it is not online.

Thanks in advance.

It's the 2012 awards edition you need not the latest edition with the cars of 2013 on the front.

I have the magazine delivered on subscription but give them away to my young nephew when I've read them and that edition has already gone.

Quite an amusing review as they make out The Stig can't decide which one is best on track so has another go but still can't decide etc.

Cheers

It's a regular Boxster not an S and it's not a very conclusive article. It basically summarises that both cars are outstanding at what they do. The Boxster is a precision instrument. The M135i is a Jekyll & Hyde.

I have seen Top Gear Magazine at Barns & Noble before. You might want to check there.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH............lOGICLEE!

Both these cars are on my short list for 2014. M235i coupe (usa) and the 2014 Cayman.

I am a cyclist first, and will not track the car, so it seems for me the M235i coupe is the choice.

Now big choice DCT or 6mt.

Thanks again.

No Problem.

Do you think the M235i will get DCT or the ZF 8speed auto from the M135i?

Having owned DSG/DCT cars I can say I prefer the ZF 8 Speed.
