Porsche 718 Boxster

Porsche 718 Boxster review

Manufacturer price from:£47,561
Review continues below...

The Porsche 718 Boxster is the cheapest convertible in the prestige German brand's line-up – and it's one of the best, too.

A two-seat, rear-wheel drive sports car with a mid-engined layout, the Boxster is brilliant to drive, with strong engines, sharp handling and excellent gearboxes.

The interior is well built and nicely designed, with plenty of space and two separate boots (one in the front and one in the back), so it is surprisingly practical.

It has a simple retracting fabric hood, so you can enjoy sunny days just as much as any winding roads, and the Boxster undercuts the rival Jaguar F-Type by thousands of pounds. However, it is quite a lot more expensive than an equivalent Audi TT Roadster, Mercedes-Benz SLC or BMW Z4, so it really worth the extra? Read on over the next few pages to find out.

And if you have already made up your mind, why not see if our new car deals can offer you a tempting discount?
