Porsche Boxster voted Best Convertible in Scotland

Home to some of the best roads in the British Isles, you would expect motoring writers from Scotland to know a thing or two about driving. This theory was tonight proven when the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers voted the new Porsche Boxster its favourite
convertible sports car in the 2012 Scottish Car of the Year Awards at its annual black-tie event in Glasgow.

With an all-new light-weight body, new flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, a completely revised chassis and evolutionary styling incorporating a fully-electric folding roof, the mid-engined Boxster offers open-top driving enthusiasts a new generation of the benchmark roadster.

"We would argue that Scottish roads are the best in the world for enjoying a rear-wheel-drive roadster and the Boxster really delivers. Even when the road surface deteriorates, this is a wonderfully precise car which delivers the ultimate in driving satisfaction. Add in the attention to detail, build quality, impressive residuals and strong performance with improved fuel economy and it’s easy to see why the judging panel instantly warmed to this new model," said President of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, John Murdoch.

Receiving the award, Chris Craft, Managing Director of Porsche Cars GB, commented, "Since going on sale in May, the reaction from customers and journalists to the new Boxster has been incredible. The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers drives a great many cars every year, and for the Boxster to receive this national recognition at tonight's Awards is a further tribute to the outstanding achievement by our engineers and designers in Germany."
