The Porsche 718 Boxster is sensational to drive and beautifully built – it’s one of the best open-top sports cars on saleread the full model review
The S model gets a standard mesh wind deflector, 19in wheels, part-leather interior and sports seats, as well as extra styling details. You'll still want to add plenty of options, though.
This 345bhp 2.5-litre engine gives the lightweight Boxster fairly extreme performance, with a seriously potent mid-range and the ability to rev strongly to the 7500rpm redline. Below 2000rpm, you get a noticeably delayed accelerator response, but otherwise this is a flexible engine. Shame it doesn't sound better, though.
