2017 Porsche Boxster is a very similar vehicle to its 911 cousin, at least when it comes to its road manners. Another good thing is that it’s not as expensive as the 911 and it comes little bit larger in this model year. Other than that there are almost no other changes. Overall driving experience is great with this model and it comes with the perfect blend of luxury inside the cabin, styling on the outside and great performance under the hood. Main competitors of this good looking luxury car are BMW Z4 and Mercedes Benz SLK. When it comes to performance buyers can find the same amount of horsepower in some less expensive models like Nissan 370Z or Audi TT, but these models come with much less luxury inside the cabin.
Exterior And Interior
In the new model year there are several big changes, the new model is longer and heavier than the previous one, and it also has 15 additional horsepower sports seats and Active Suspension Management System. On the photos we can see that the new model looks really great and it is much more prettier in person. It comes with the soft top that can be folded or unfolded at the speeds lower than 31 mph. The geometry of this car is a rel art and it also comes with emphasized side sills and jewel headlights that are made in bi xenon technology in certain trim levels.
2017 Porsche Boxster comes with a very quiet cabin, this is one of its prime features and it is also one of the roomiest cars in its class. Driver seat is really comfortable, and it is specially made by Recarro. There are a lot of leather timings everywhere around the cabin and on the central dash there is a seven inch color touch screen display. This hi tech features looks great, especially with the nicely designed line of buttons that comes under it. Whole central console looks very elegant.
