The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The standard seats have manual controls for back-and-forth adjustment with a button to electrically adjust the angle of the backrest. If you want lumbar adjustment you'll need to order the optional 14-way electrically adjustable Sports seats, or the 18-way Sports Seats Plus, which include adjustable side bolsters as well.

Any of those options will supply great levels of comfort and support, while the racing-style sports bucket seats that are also available are more about the latter. They're deep, so getting in and out isn't as easy, with fixed-angle backrests and firm cushions – be warned if you're planning on using your car daily.

Parking sensors are available as an option. You can choose rear parking sensors on their own, all-round parking sensors or the latter as part of a pack that also includes a rear-view camera. We’d strongly recommend adding at least the rear parking sensors, partly to help prevent clumsy (and expensive) parking dings but also to make your Boxster easier to sell on in the future.

At night, the standard bi-xenon headlights offer excellent illumination. You can upgrade these to directional headlights that aim their beams with the steering to help you see better through bends, or you can go a stage further and opt for the adaptive LED headlights that can remain on main beam without affecting other drivers.
