Porsche Carrera and Boxster make Edmunds.com Top 10

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 17, 2006–The two Porsche models
that epitomize the sportscar maker’s performance mantra–the 911
Carrera and Boxster roadster–have once again made Edmunds.com 2006
Consumers’ Most Wanted list. The awards, based on voting from recent
visitors to the popular automotive website, are presented to
participants’ favorite vehicles in 27 different categories. This is
the fourth consecutive year that Porsche models have garnered “Most
Wanted” accolades via Edmunds.com.
Earning the 2006 Consumers’ Most Wanted “Coupe over $45,000” is
the 911 Carrera. The venerable Porsche sportscar has made Edmunds.com
Most Wanted list every year since 2003. Porsche’s Boxster roadster was
named to the 2006 list in the “Convertible Under $45,000” category, an
honor also bestowed on the sprightly roadster in 2005.
“Edmunds.com visitors regularly provide us and each other with
feedback, so every year we ask them to vote for their Most Wanted
Vehicles of the year,” said Karl Brauer, Editor in Chief of
Edmunds.com. “These are the vehicles that have captured the hearts and
minds of the consumers.”
The Porsche nameplate is a familiar sight in the Most Wanted
awards roster. In 2005, Porsche captured four of the awards. Including
those for the 911 and Boxster, both the Porsche Cayenne and 911
Cabriolet were named to the list. The Cayenne received a similar nod
from Edmunds.com in 2003 and 2004, with the 911 Cabriolet also being
lauded in 2003.
