Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Porsche Boxster sports?

The evergreen Audi TT is a cracker, whether as a coupe or a convertible roadster, with a smooth, eager range of engines, darty handling and a beautiful interior. It’s as fast, in some of its variants and in many of its ways, as the Boxster, but perhaps lacks the special sparkle of the Porsche.

The Mercedes-Benz SLC is a fine drop-top car whose purpose is more boulevard cruiser than out-and-out sports car, and though it’s well equipped and good to sit in it’s not as much fun to drive as the purposeful Boxster.

Overview

The 718 Boxster is a phenomenally good sports car, and makes for a great used buy, too.

  • Brilliant handling
  • Comfortable ride
  • Classy interior
  • Not so well equipped
  • Engine note disappointing
  • Uneven power delivery
