Edmunds' Expert Review

Stylish, luxurious and thrilling to drive, the 2015 Porsche Boxster comes up aces. It's even something of a bargain for what you get.

vehicle overview

When it was introduced back in 1997, the Boxster provided a new generation of driving enthusiasts with access to the Porsche experience. No longer was the choice a 911 or nothing, and a love affair with the company's new midengine convertible was born. Since then, Porsche has fortified the Boxster's lineup with continual improvements and upgrades.

For the 2015 Boxster family, there are three distinct models: the base model, the upgraded S and the range-topping GTS, which was introduced last year. Blessed with stellar handling and steering, they're all a blast to drive, and any one of them can be ordered with race-bred carbon-ceramic composite brakes, an efficient and lightning-fast automated-manual transmission (with or without launch control) and adaptive cruise control with collision detection and automatic braking. These things were once reserved for the perennial 911 halo car.

Negatives? Well, there aren't many. The base Boxster's straight line acceleration isn't all that impressive, at least in comparison to other cars in this price range. The same goes for the standard four-speaker stereo; there are available upgrades, of course, but for a price. Rear visibility is poor with the top up and mediocre even with it down, and the Boxster's separate front and rear trunks mean you've got not one, but two places where a golf bag won't fit. Also, if you're thinking that an entry-level Boxster is a "cheap" Porsche, think again. The excellent build quality is genetic, and there's a vast array of options that could easily take its price north of $100,000 when new.

Exercise some restraint on the options, however, and you'll find there are a few convertibles that can deliver its near-exotic looks and the superb dynamics for which Porsche is known at prices that come close. Other German roadsters that come to mind are naturally the BMW Z4 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK. Both of those retractable hardtops have their allure: The SLK's elegance and reputation are balanced by the Z4's intriguing design and refinement. Other possibilities include the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which can't be beat from a value standpoint, and the impressive Jaguar F-Type, albeit for more money.

But here's the kicker: Among this group of cars, the Boxster's pricing is actually quite reasonable, even with a few choice options thrown in. True, the 2015 Porsche Boxster costs a bit more than its predecessor, but when you drive this convertible sports car, you'll definitely feel as if you're getting more in return.

2015 Porsche Boxster configurations

The 2015 Porsche Boxster is a two-seat convertible offered in three trim levels: base, S and GTS.

The base model comes equipped with staggered-width 18-inch alloy wheels with summer tires, a power-operated soft top with heated rear glass, a wind deflector, an automatically extending rear spoiler, single central exhaust, heated exterior mirrors, cruise control, six-way-adjustable seats (power backrest, manual fore/aft and height), a manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, air-conditioning, partial leather upholstery, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a 7-inch color infotainment display and a four-speaker sound system with single-CD player and an auxiliary audio jack.

The Boxster S adds a more powerful engine, dual central exhaust, a lower ride height, 19-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights, an upgraded seven-speaker stereo and larger front brakes with red-painted brake calipers.

The Boxster GTS adds an even more powerful engine, even lower ride, a sport exhaust, 20-inch wheels, unique front fascia, tinted taillights and upgraded interior and exterior trim. Optional on the base and S models, the GTS also gets electronically controlled dampers (Porsche Active Suspension Management, or PASM) and the Sport Chrono package as standard. The Sport Chrono package adds dynamic transmission mounts (said to minimize weight transfer during gearchanges), a lap timer, driver-adjustable chassis settings and, with the optional PDK transmission, launch control.

As usual, Porsche will happily double the price of your Boxster if you select enough options. The Convenience package adds heated seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. Upgrading to one of the several Premium packages nets those features plus adaptive headlights (bi-xenon for the base Boxster), automatic wipers with washers, auto-dimming mirrors, 10-way-adjustable power sport seats (with four-way power lumbar), driver memory functions and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. An expanded version of the Premium package adds 14-way adaptive sport seats (also with four-way power lumbar) to the mix. The Infotainment package gets you a navigation system, satellite radio, HD radio, smartphone integration via the Aha Radio app, a USB port and either a 10-speaker Bose audio system or a considerably pricier 12-speaker Burmester audio system.

Some of the above items can be added separately. Other main options include special wheel designs, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a CD changer, electronic torque vectoring with a mechanical limited-slip rear differential, ceramic-composite brakes with upgraded calipers, variable-ratio steering, a sport steering wheel (with PDK shift paddles), a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control (with frontal collision warning and automatic braking), ventilated seats, voice controls, ambient lighting and numerous customization options that will cover just about any interior surface you like with leather, aluminum, carbon fiber, wood trim or paint.

2015 Highlights

The 2015 Porsche Boxster is essentially unchanged apart from gaining a new rearview camera and parking sensors.

Performance & mpg

All Boxsters utilize a midengine rear-wheel-drive layout and either the standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed automated manual transmission known as PDK. Porsche also provides a standard (and fully defeatable) auto stop-start system to conserve fuel when the car is stationary.

The base 2015 Boxster rolls with a 2.7-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine (flat-6) rated at 265 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The stick shift gets the base Boxster to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, according to Porsche, while PDK is a tenth of a second quicker by default and three-tenths quicker with the Sport Chrono package's launch control. EPA fuel economy estimates are 24 mpg combined (20 city/30 highway) with the manual and an even more impressive 26 mpg combined (22/32) with PDK.

The Boxster S steps up to a 3.4-liter flat-6 that churns out 315 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. In Edmunds testing, an S model with the manual transmission accelerated from zero to 60 in a swift 4.9 seconds; expect the PDK with launch control to drop that time to 4.5 seconds. Fuel economy remains strong at 23 mpg combined (20/28) with the manual and 24 mpg combined (21/30) with PDK.

The Boxster GTS gets an upgraded version of the 3.4-liter flat-6 with 330 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Porsche estimates 0-60-mph acceleration at 4.7 seconds with the manual transmission. Our testing of a GTS equipped with the PDK transmission and launch control yielded an impressive 4.2-second 0-60 performance. EPA-estimated fuel economy comes in at 22 mpg combined (19/26) with the manual and a shockingly good 25 mpg combined (22/31) with PDK.

Safety

Standard safety features for the 2015 Porsche Boxster include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, head- and chest-protecting side airbags and integrated rollover safety hoops above the headrests.

In Edmunds brake testing, both a Boxster S and a GTS with the standard (non-ceramic) brakes came to a stop from 60 mph in a short 103 feet.

Options include a rearview camera and front and/or rear parking sensors. The optional adaptive cruise control also includes a frontal collision warning system that includes automatic braking for frontal collision mitigation.

Driving

If you test-drive a 2015 Porsche Boxster, chances are you won't want to return the key. Compact dimensions, quick reflexes, a midengine layout whose noise is part of the enjoyment, and Porsche's usual, magical suspension tuning join forces to produce some of the best road manners you'll get from any car. Keeping the engine singing while unraveling a winding section of blacktop is one of motoring's pure joys, and regardless of price it just doesn't get much better than a Boxster. For these reasons and more, Edmunds has awarded the Porsche Boxster S and GTS well-deserved "A" ratings.

In a straight line, the Boxster S and GTS can run neck and neck with a base 911, and only truly depraved power fiends will find their sonorous flat-6s wanting. If you fit that description, you may find yourself musing that a bit more punch would be welcome for uphill climbs. More sane people, on the other hand, will find the base Boxster's modestly powered engine to still be a willing companion, with the larger engines of the S and GTS delightful but perhaps not altogether necessary indulgences.

Interior

The Boxster's cabin is almost as striking as its exterior styling. In contrast to the previous model's forgettable interior layout, the current design shines, boasting top-shelf materials and a dramatic (if button-heavy) center console that borrows directly from the company's halo car, the 911. There's nary a sign of cost-cutting anywhere you look or touch; this is an environment that's fully commensurate with Porsche prices. The Boxster's infotainment system is controlled by a combination of fixed buttons and the touchscreen; it's impressively easy to use.

Further refinement is found in the convertible top itself, which has ample sound-deadening material and yields one of the quietest enclosed rides of any soft-top roadster we've driven. The Boxster's notorious blind spots remain, however. If you've got 10 seconds to spare and aren't exceeding 31 mph, it's generally best to put the top down.

Thanks to its generously sized cockpit and low-mounted seats, the 2015 Boxster can accommodate taller passengers without issue. But the two trunks -- one front, one rear -- are too small to swallow a golf bag or even a large piece of luggage, so their respectable 10 cubic feet of combined cargo space doesn't tell the whole story. On the bright side, rear trunk space is unaffected when the top's down, a distinct advantage relative to retractable-hardtop rivals like the BMW Z4 and Mercedes-Benz SLK.

JohnCBullen@GMail.com,10/18/2015
I traded in my '08 911 (997.1) C4S cabriolet on a 2015 Boxster S. The Boxster is head and tails ahead of the 911 in fit, finish, interior quality, handling, and interior noise. The PCM (entertainment, communication, nav) system on the Boxster is several steps ahead of what what was in the 911. While the 911 is iconic and has a sex appeal superior to the Boxster, the Boxster shines in performance over the 911. This is my third Boxster, and I am of the opinion that the Boxster S is a better balanced car with its mid-engine and weight distribution than the 911, and the power to weight ratio is well within anyone's power requirements. Update: Two years owning this car, and everything in my review is still valid. A great car!
A wonderful true sports car
Robert,10/10/2015
I traded a 13 boxster s for a 2014 991... Always wanted a new body style..the 991 was really awful in all the areas the 2015 boxster s is fantastic.Ride,comfort,..991 could feel every crack in the road..loudly..annoying !..the boxster 6 speed is so perfect in fit..I'm 6'2" and the 14 way seats put the driver in a perfect position to grasp the stick,and then simply touch the PCM to change to what ever format ..media,radio..My 2013 boxster s was built for track..PTV,Pasam,sports exhaust ..this 2015 was built with full leather,blk.Well worth the $$ Burmester stereo..Carmine Red..20"turbo wheels..a fabulous ride..and 40k less than a 991!! Enjoy...... Have had for 8000 miles.....I could not enjoy a car more..I love the two trunks..quality of the real leather...the smooth clutch...the Burmester stereo is amazing...perfect sound at any speed with the top down...
Not your average roadster.
Howard Ishbia,03/10/2016
This is not an entry level Porsche. This is a first class roadster a definite step up from other roadsters that it is compared to such as the Z4 and the Audi TT. Great car, excellent ride and style. Driving this car is a joy and the way it zips in and out of traffic makes you feel if you are driving in a race (of course at posted speeds). Great car and value.
2014 Porsche Boxster S
John P.,07/28/2018
Bought a 2014 Boxster S. Can’t tell you how impressed I am with this car is so many ways. I never liked the look of the boxster and always owned 911’s. That mindset started to change with the redesign in 2013. Every time I would see one on the road or parked, I found myself admiring the new design with the huge air intake ducts that gave it a Porsche GT, Audi R8 and Lamborghini look. I like how they brought the duct shape into the doors too. I never ever thought to look at how refined and classy the interior was when gawking at the exterior. Fast forward a few years and I finally added a 2014 Boxster S to my stable and I am extremely impressed with this car. The sound of the engine is amazing and while it could be a tad quicker, it’s still pretty fast and with the excellent gas mileage it’s just perfect. The interior is also a high point. The design is intuitive and the fit, finish and materials used are top notch. Driving it is a blast and the handling is much better that any of my 911’s hand down. It feels one in its own on the road. I wanted a manual transmission but settled on the PDK and am super impressed with that too which I never thought would be possible. It’s an incredible transmission with a lot of options for driving style. Bottom line: It’s a lot of car, look and performance for the money. Porsche really made this car right and am finally glad I pulled the trigger. It is a world class Sportscars in every way.

Should I lease or buy a 2015 Porsche Boxster?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
