2016 Porsche 718 Boxster: Taxi Ride Experience

You can read all the technical specifications in the world, and look at as many schematic diagrams as you can get your hands on, but even company engineers admit the only way to truly understand the 2016 Porsche 718 Boxster four-cylinder turbo is to get out on a racetrack...

2015 Porsche Boxster S Review

The Porsche Boxster was, once upon a time, considered the pretender's Porsche. The purists screamed from the rooftops that 'real' Porsche owners would only ever opt for the 911. All that has changed though and the Boxster is now, especially in S guise, a genuine performance option.

Porsche 718 Boxster design: 'We sent the Boxster to the gym'

It is hard to believe the Porsche Boxster is already 20 years old, but it is, and in that time Porsche reckons it has stood for "timeless roadster design with two seats, a clearly defined mid-engine concept and a classic soft top". Not much to argue with there, given the Boxster has delivered handsomely on all those fronts...

1997 Porsche Boxster Review

If you think ‘real' Porsche's have their engines hanging over the back axle then chances are you won't consider Boxsters genuine Porsches. If this is that case then I probably shouldn't mention the ‘C' word (Cayenne), or broach the topic of the sedan-come-hatch that starts with a ‘P' and ends in an ‘anamera'...

Inspired by recent great reviews of the Porsche 981 Boxter S and Cayman S models I seriously considered buying one.
