Fantastic car, all around!
"With the shift to a flat-4 for the '17 MY Boxster, the 718 line-up doesn't disappoint. Plenty of options to customize with - highly recommend LCA, Bose surround sound, multi-function steering wheel and extended-range tank. Performance is great, especially for highway miles - fuel economy is quite impressive for a performance roadster. Turbocharger is good, still offers some "growl" on the road."
Interior

Well-constructed as expected - simple yet refined. Options add up fast but decent space/comfort.
Exterior

5.0

Wider appearance and accentuated angles.

Good overall fuel economy for using as a daily commuter.

2-person roadster, though decent storage across front and rear trunks for a couple suit-cases.

Options really price these vehicles, but quality and warranty are good.

Surprisingly Versatile Daily Driver Sports Car
"With the 2017 model year, the Boxster has lost its howling V6 Naturally Aspirated engine sound, however it has gained turbo-charging, which means it leaves the outgoing Boxster in the dust in terms of acceleration and torque, with very little turbo lag from the 1000-2000 RPM range. If you live in an area where the sun shines then you'll love taking the top down and embracing the nature and wind through your hair. Performance is great, even in the base model, and popping the convertible into Sport mode which is a standard option, you'll love the increased throttle response. All in all, its a wonderful convertible and when optioned lightly doesn't approach its bigger brother 911's territory, highly recommend this vehicle if you're looking for a load of fun and a pure mid-engine driving experience."
Interior

4.0

3 Driver Focused gauges, with the right one being configurable to show media information or navigation information. Pure leather is an option but the standard materials are great to look at and touch. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because its driver-focused and not as plush as some of the other German competitors.
Exterior

5.0

The most beautiful exterior to date for the Boxster has been realized with this 718 refresh, sharp lines and sleek curves, with a redesigned backend which matches all of the refreshed vehicles Porsche is producing going forward.
Performance

4.0

Decent 0-60 time for the price, and popping it into Sport mode greets you with burbles, crackles and pops and you zip in and out of heavy traffic. Taking off one star due to the replacement of the V6 NA engine sound, but the resulting sound is an angry mechanical growl, instead of a howl.
Family

2.0

The Boxster has enormous Front Trunk, "trunk" space more than enough to fit 2 large paper towel bundles and then some, however as this has no rear seats I can't recommend it as Family Friendly by any stretch.
Cost

4.0

Besides tires and oil, my Boxster has had minimal time in the shop and more time to enjoy my car with the top down! Taking off one-star because if something were to be replaced and replaced by a dealer, you can expect to pay a pretty penny for the "Porsche Tax", as compared to a Mazda Miata or Subaru BRZ.
