Trim: T

The T is a sportier-feeling version of the entry-level 2.0-litre Boxster. It gets the Sport Chrono Pack, a limited-slip differential, PASM sports suspension with adaptive dampers, Sport Seats Plus in part leather and cloth, which feature electric height and backrest angle and bigger side bolsters. The infotainment system is a no-cost option, so make sure you add it back in.

Engine: 2.0

Entry-level Boxsters comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 296bhp. That's enough for 0-62mph in as little as 4.7sec (with a PDK automatic gearbox fitted) and it revs out cleanly, but is really into its stride by 3000rpm. It's smoother than the 2.5-litre Boxster S, but still sounds quite unappealing. It's worth looking at because the Boxster package is so good, but if you're looking for sports car thrills with a sweeter engine for the same money, we'd take a serious look at the lovely Alpine A110 instead.
