September 15, 2012 at 09:21

Today we will see two German luxury sports cars fighting with each other, as the title of the best high-class coupe hasn’t been announced yet. The fight will be twice as interesting as usually, as both cars originate in Germany, from quite traditional automakers, though we can say that Porsche is even more conservative than Mercedes-Benz, so let’s see which one of the two: Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class of the year 2013 and 2013 Porsche Boxster – will win.

In terms of price be prepared to give out quite a big cum, if you want to have one of these monsters in your garage. Though Porsche will be a little more expensive, its price tag was set at $48,000, while new Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class has the price of $42,900. Under the hood new Mercedes-Benz has just 1.8-Liter I4 engine with 16 valves, that produces 201-horsepower. To say the truth we were quite disappointed, because new Porsche got 2.9-Liter H6 engine with 24 valves, that gives out 255-horsepower. Both are equipped with 6-speed automatic transmission system.

So in the end we can say that both cars are great and offer very engaging drive, but new Porsche appeared to be more attractive! So the title goes to 2013 Boxter.
