Here's one that stood out in mind; read the sixth from last and fifth from last paragraphs:

I know that his conclusion almost seems to contradict those paragraphs, but it's been my experience that the #1 priority of car magazines is not to offend advertisers, so for him to write what he did in those two paragraphs strikes me as pretty significant.

I guess one problem is that it's all relative; i.e., as dead as the new Boxster's (or 991's) steering may be, it's still probably better than anything you'd get for under $100,000 except maybe on a Lotus.
