2017 Porsche Boxster is best car I have owned in 50+ years of driving. Outstanding performance, looks, features. Had a Porsche 911, but actually prefer the Boxster. Only negatives: Navigation system is far inferior to Google. Cruise control in awkward position--too close to turn signals.

The new 718 will make you happy, trust me! I traded in my 2006 Boxster S for a 2017 718 and I could not be happier. Yes, I was concerned about the four cylinder engine but after one drive, it will change your mind. The power is remarkable and the sound is just fine with the sport exhaust. Yes, it sounds different but that is ok; it is a slight change but change CAN be good. Remember, Porsche knows four cylinders! They have turned a new chapter with this one. The shifts on the pDK are lighting fast and the handling is superb, classic Boxster! By far the best Boxster yet. It it best performing to date, even better than the 981 GTS!

Balance, feel, performance are exceptional. Build quality and engineering are well thought out. The definition of a sports car.

The feeling of driving this car is an overwhelming sense of freedom! Get in, put the top down, turn the tunes up and the stress falls away! It also doesn't hurt that everyone turns to look at you when you drive by!

Fun and sporty, easy to drive. Learning curve if you've never driven a Porsche Boxster in the past few years.

The Porsche Boxster is really fun to drive. It has amazing handling and runs very quiet, even though it is a convertible. I expected road noise but even with the top down you can have a reasonable conversation with a passenger. The dual Turbo and new four cylinder provides plenty of power but you have to be careful to watch your speed as the car's performance is very smooth! Styling of the Boxster allows for many compliments from others. Interior is spacious but not excessive, very comfortable to drive and ride in.

I purchased the Boxster 718S with Porsche Torque vector option, the Chrono sport package and he PASM option. The car handles very well and corners phenomenally. Car accelerates with no hesitation. Seats are very comfortable (14way adjustable with heating and cooling option).

I have a 2017 Non ""S"" 718 Boxster w/ PDK. ..... this ""718"" sounds mean and aggressive. The base ""718 has 20 psi of boost"". This car hauls a**. Had that experience with a new 5.0 GT Mustang and a BMW 750i. Boy were they in for a huge surprise. The PDK in the new 718 has also been aggressively re-tuned and is immediately noticeable. The shifts with this new revised PDK are quicker and extremely aggressive even in normal mode. I did 0-60 and 0-100 runs and the car returned consistently with just flooring (No L/C) 4.6 and 4.7 0-60 runs & 0-100 in 10.1 and 10.2 sec. This is one quick machine. Gas mileage is bad though get the larger 16.9 gal. tank.
