About Porsche 718 Boxster

Sexy and swift, the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster is a turbocharged 2-seater with exquisite design and dynamic performance. At a starting price of under $59,000 it’s also Porsche’s least expensive convertible. Two models are available, the 300-horsepower Boxster and the 350-horsepower Boxster S. Both are rear-wheel drive with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mounted in the middle of its chassis for ultimate balance and handling. Its mid-engine layout also allows for two trunks, one in the front and one in the back, giving the Boxster a surprising amount of cargo space. Its rivals include the similar Porsche 718 Cayman, which is essentially a coupe version of the Boxster, as well as the BMW Z4, Audi TT, Mercedes-Benz SLC, Jaguar F-Type and the more powerful Chevy Corvette.

What's new for 2018?
2018 Porsche 718 Boxster

All-new just last year, the Porsche Boxster is essentially unchanged for 2018. Porsche has made the first year of scheduled maintenance complimentary, and it has fitted an improved carbon cabin filter to keep out particles, pollen, odors and dust from the air even more effectively. When the top is up, of course.

"I have owned numerous luxury, sports and performance cars but none that draw the attention of this car. when out driving it is always complimented. Taking it on Wisconsin's rural roads is exhilarating. You don't have to go top end to have a ball driving this car. Taking corners and accelerating from them is fabulous. Make sure you have everything set before heading out as you will soon be in total attention mode. The car needs you to keep it on track."

"Traded in a 2006 Boxster for 2013. Car is a completely different animal. Much faster, tighter and more fun to drive. It is very comfortable. I drove the car from New York to Florida and had no road fatigue or back discomfort. Living in Florida, the top is hardly ever up, but when those quick rains come, 9 seconds to put the top down on the fly is nice. The car is a real head turner. Only 3 negatives. The 2006 had a solid plexiglass windscreen which filtered out noise so well that you could talk on a bluetooth going 80 mph without the other person hearing wind noise. The 2013 boxster has a mesh windscreen which is extremely noisy and cold at night. 2nd negative is the slide to move the seat forward had the hook facing upward so you could hang a hat on it. The 2013 has the hook going down so there is no place to put a hat. 3rd negative. They removed the storage cabinet behind the driver. I would highly recommend the car. In my opinion the straight boxster is plenty fast so the "S" for $10k extra is not needed. If you get the car enjoy it. It is an everyday driver for me. I have a six speed and the clutch is light and the throw is short and tight. You will love this car."

"I traded a 2010 Boxster for a 2013 Boxster base. THe new car is superior in every way. The ride has improved immensely and the body structure is unbelievably solid. I live on North Michigan Ave in Chicago and drive in a lot of heavy traffic and the stop start function is incredible. The other feature of the PDK which is incredible is that it coasts on the highway when you back off your speed. the engine reves go to 1200 rpm and when you accelerate the car engine react instantaneously. The sport position on the transmission quicken acceleration response. Every little detail has been improved, e.i quality of the turning lever, the cup holders, interior design and quality. and last but not least the handling has been measurably improved. the car is a sublime driving experience!"
