Porsche Boxster and Boxster S (981)

Porsche Boxster exterior

5 Pros

  1. Brilliant. Porsche did not have to stick with any traditions (like with the 911) when they first introduced the Boxster, so the design is perfect. It even comes with 2 genuinely usable boots (one in the back and one in the front)
  2. Its fast and fun. A certified excitement machine, the handling is sharp and all the engines are terrific
  3. Sound from the optional sports exhaust adds that x- factor.  It’s like drinking champagne from the bottle – so unnecessary and undignified, but you can’t help but feel like a rockstar
  4. Convertible roof. It drops in 9 seconds and open air motoring is a key appeal of this car
  5. Its more fuel efficient and lighter than the previous model

5 Cons

  1. It only has 2 seats – unfortunately the Boxster is now perfect only 90% of the time
  2. The rear is ugly, it looks like it has a monobrow
  3. New steering and electronic hand brake gets a bad rap
  4. Boxster’s will always feel a little underpowered – presumably a strategy by Porsche to ensure that people still buy the much more expensive 911
  5. Because they are terrific and relatively cheap, they can be a little common. While this used to be a turn off for some, the huge success of the Porsche 4WD Cayenne has really fixed this issue. Next to this monster, the Boxster suddenly looks like a unique again

Concluding personality type: Prince Harry: Sure William is taller and probably going to be king – but let go of your ego and see how much fun you can have
