    from the motor trend august 2004 issue comparison test among 4 top-down 2wo-seat roadsters:

    fourth place
    NISSAN 350Z Roadster Enthusiast 3.5L V6 287hp 274torque $34,000
    hot- powerful V6 engine,good value/dollar,self-booting tonneau
    not- odd proportions,low-grade interior materials,vibration in shifter/drivetrain
    bottom line- does what a sports acr should for thousands of dollars less than euro brands


    third place
    BMZ Z4 3.0i 3.0L I6 225hp 214torque $48,000
    hot- buttery-smooth inline-6, 50/50 weight distribution,tactile clutch and shifter action
    not- overwrought exterior design,numb and too-quick steering,harsh ride
    bottom line- basic excellence foiled by overdesign and overengineering


    second place
    AUDI TT Roadster quattro DSG6 3.2L V6 250hp 236torque $47,000
    hot- rorty VW narrow-angle V6,high-grade design details inside and out,AWD
    not- excessive cowl shake,bounds over rough pavement,econo-sedan origins
    bottom line- a fun sportster that's more than the sum of its parts


    first place
    PORSCHE BOXSTER S 3.2L F6 258hp 229 torque $59,000
    hot- dedicated,sports-car platform;potent,flexible boxer engine,timeless sheetmetal
    not- pricey pedigree,downmarket interior plastics,tinny-sounding doors
    bottom line- sure it's expensive,but it's worth it

    they tested the boxster "s" model - with a highly uprated engine, as well as a highly uprated pricetag
