For the sport, I'd recommend running, which trends more towards supportive than competitive.

As Americans we're used to tons of low-down torque, and in general don't like revving a lot. That's...

No. The Boxster saved Porsche from financial trouble in the 90s, along with insane profitability on the 996.

I've bought the following cars via...
