2014 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have had my Boxster for over one year. By far the most dynamic car I have ever owned. I got the smaller engine, with the automated manual transmission, In LA congestion, it has plenty of power. The gallop between 80 mph and 110 mph is intoxicating. It accelerates assuredly and smoothly, and its reflexes are truly sports car athletic. The interior is very comfortable and well appointed, and for less than $70,000, the car is an amazing value. People say that the trunk space is limited, but honestly, I have done a couple of Costco runs, and trips to the airport with luggage, without too much of a problem. The top goes up and down in a matter of seconds -- and on the go when you are pulling out -- easy and convenient. One thing -- at least in LA -- the car gets a lot of attention. Between its looks, and the sound of the engine, the Boxster turns a lot of heads. Now, that could be a good thing, or a bad thing. If you want to be inconspicuous -- a Boxster may not be for you.

2014 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased a new 2104 Boxster on 10-2-14 at Checkered Flag in Va Bch. I drove both S and base cars, thinking that I would surely want the S: I was wrong. The base car does not have, as the Edmunds "con" headline asserts "mediocre acceleration". It may be somewhat slower than the S version, but it is far more than adequate for normal use. In fact, it is faster than the 2006 Cayman S that I once owned.
The one option that I recommend as essential is the PDK transmission, which is a remarkable unit. Those who insist on having a manual six-speed are making a mistake.
In the recent past I have had several versions of the Cayman, a Audi TT RS and a Corvette GS. The Boxster is superior to all


Best Features

1. The PDK transmission. 2. Excellent ride and handling 3. Easily operated power top 4. Beautiful design, inside and out 5. Fine ergonomics 6. Fast revving engine with snarling exhaust note


Worst Features

There may be no such thing as a perfect car, but this one is close. However, be careful when adding options, which are very expensive.

2014 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.4L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After driving a 2003 Boxster for the past seven years, I was ready for a change.
Something larger and more practical was in order.
Not another two seat roadster - I was moving on.


Then, out of curiosity, I test drove the new Porsche Boxster.
I was instantly hooked. It is hard to describe just how much better the new version of the Boxster is versus its predecessor.
It is better in every way - substantially better.
The former was fun and competent.
Enoyable.
The new Boxster looks, sounds and drives like a supercar.
It is incredible.

If you really need/want a practical car, avoid this car like the plague - lest you be seduced too.


Best Features

top goes down at speeds up to 30 mph exhaust note


Worst Features

none
