I read the article with great interest. Thanks for posting the link.
Bottom line, if I was heartily into track racing (running), serious auto crossing, Bondurant driving school, etc, I think I would definitely opt for the Boxster....
However, regardless of their opinion of retractable hard tops, I DID opt for the SLK for every day driving, touring, sex-appeal (???), and all around fun. PLUS, I dont have a Porsche dealer here!
Even though it has a lot going for it and there is a BMW dealer here, the Z4 was never in my sights even with the retractable hard top.
As usual, my opinion and $4 will get you a Starbucks
