Introduction

What Car? says...

If you want a convertible there are so many to choose from that you're spoilt for choice. But what if you want a two-seater convertible that goes like a sports car – you know, one that really does drive with the conviction to make a keen drivers grin from ear to ear? Then your options are more constricted.

The Porsche 718 Boxster is really the default choice, assuming your budget doesn't run into McLaren 570S Spyder territory – let's face it, most people's doesn't. It’s basically a Porsche 718 Cayman – one of the best sports cars on sale – with the roof removed but very little, if anything, removed dynamically.

That’s why the Boxster is not only comparable with drop-top cars, such as the BMW Z4, Audi TT Roadster and Jaguar F-Type Convertible, but also hardtop, hard-core sports cars, such as the Alpine A110 and Toyota Supra.

Therefore, throughout this review, we'll be talking about what the Boxster is like to drive and live with every day, but also comparing it with all those cars. That way, whatever it is you are looking for from your convertible, you'll not only be able to make an informed choice, but also the correct one. 

And when you have made up your mind, why not see if our New Car Buying pages can offer you a tempting discount on the car you've chosen? We have loads of top-rate deals offered, without a hint of a haggle involved, on almost every new car out there.
