Today we headed down to two of the best places in the country to really experience the power and performance of the Porsche Boxster —- Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway along the North Carolina and Tennessee border. These roads are no joke. One has tight, constant switchbacks and the other with sweeping turns and huge views.
I met up with Ezra Dyer, Men’s Journal’s car expert and contributing editor. This driving legend loves cars more than anyone I’ve ever met, as he should, its his J-O-B! Pushing my red Porsche Boxster to the max, me “the little grasshopper” in the passenger seat and him “the sensei” in the driver’s seat, we mastered the car through every curve.
On our way to Cherohala, Ezra jumped into another Porsche Boxster to let me get behind the wheel and follow him. When I say follow him, what I really mean try to keep up. I am not going to tell you exactly how fast we were going, but we were definitely pushing the cars to the limit. That is what you’re supposed to do in a Porsche Boxster… go fast!
