3. Porsche Boxster
In the past, some people have called the Boxster “cute” or “not a real Porsche.” The 2014 model does not catch as much flack, possibly because it is by far the most capable version of the roadster so far. When the Porsche roadster is outfitted with the 2.7-liter six-cylinder engine, as well as the automatic transmission, the car achieves an incredible 22 mpg in the city, 32 mpg for highway driving, and 26 mpg in combined driving, according to EPA fuel economy estimates. With the 2.7-liter engine, the Boxster still can get your heart racing. Handling is incredible and in some ways makes the Boxster an excellent alternative to the mighty 911. The interior has risen to a whole new level of quality and luxury, thanks to features like optional two-tone leather trim. There are few drawbacks to the Boxster. It does suffer from poor rearward visibility and the trunk is pretty tiny, but overall the car is an excellent purchasing decision.
