What You Will Like

The Porsche Boxster is the least-expensive way to get into a Porsche. Starting at just over $50,000, the Boxster offers a lightweight mid-engine chassis powered by a choice of potent powertrains, including an optional 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. While the Boxster is in the same class as the BMW Z4, Audi TTS, Corvette Convertible and Mercedes SLK, nothing else in this segment can come close to offering the Porsche's handling, performance reputation and this level of customization.

What's New For 2016

The biggest changes for 2016 are the addition of two new special editions, the Black edition and the Spyder. The Black Edition starts out as a base Boxster, but adds various popular equipment to the car to make it a little less bare bones. The Spyder occupies the other end of the spectrum with a bigger engine making more power than even the Boxster GTS.

Introduction

The mid-engine Porsche Boxster roadster, known to aficionados as the 981, is in the fourth year of its second generation. A third-generation Boxster called the 718 has been scheduled by Porsche to be introduced June 2016 for the 2017 model year. Until the 2017 model arrives, the 2016 Boxster will be available.

The Boxster was a hit right out of the box that was first opened nearly 20 years ago, not only for its mechanical virtues but for its value. Other Porsche models might be more spectacular, but their price tags are too. The Boxster has all the right Porsche stuff, in fact some would say the best Porsche stuff, because it’s so solid, handsome, simple, and trouble-free. There are no downsides to the Boxster. It’s powerful yet easy to drive, and has a comfortable ride while delivering track-worthy handling. It succeeds by not trying to be spectacular.

For 2016, there are two basic Boxsters, plus the variants. The standard Boxster engine is a 2.7-liter flat six-cylinder making 265 horsepower and sending the car to 60 miles per hour in 5.2 seconds, up to a top speed of 164 mph. The Boxster S pokes that engine out to 3.4 liters and pumps it up to 315 horsepower, cuts the 0-60 time to 4.8 seconds, and raises the speed to 178 mph.

Then come the variants. The Boxster GTS adds 15 horsepower, along with some equipment that’s optional on the Boxster S, plus its own front and rear fascia and interior.

For 2016, the Spyder is brought back by popular demand from super enthusiasts who hang out at track days. It’s given a 3.8-liter engine making 375 horsepower, lowered one inch, and, to shed 66 pounds, stripped of all creature comforts such as air conditioning, insulation and a sound system, while using more lightweight materials like aluminum, magnesium, and polymer plastics. Total weight is 2899 pounds. More power and less weight drops the 0-60 time to 4.3 seconds and raises the top speed to 180 mph. It has a manual top, and when it’s down, the Spyder is easily identifiable by its aerodynamic fairing-like head supports that so wonderfully recall the Spyder of the 1950s and ’60s.

The standard transmission in the Boxster is a 6-speed manual gearbox, but a twin-clutch 7-speed paddle-shifting automatic/manual is available. It’s called PDK, or Porsche Doppelkupplung, and was developed for racing.

The PDK is an efficient transmission, enabling two more miles per gallon than the 6-speed manual. With the 2.7-liter engine and the PDK, the Boxster is EPA-rated at 22/32 mpg City/Highway, while the Boxster S with the 3.4-liter version brings 21/30 mpg. Even though the Spyder is the lightest, because it has the biggest engine, it gets the worst mileage at 18/24 mpg. But who cares? At the track you just fill it up when it runs dry, hand over the cash for high octane, and strap on your helmet.

Lineup

Porsche Boxster ($52,100) comes with the 2.7-liter engine; Boxster S ($63,900) features a more powerful 3.4-liter engine. Boxster GTS ($74,600) has a more powerful version of the 3.4-liter engine plus Alcantara leather, adaptive suspension, the Sport Chrono Package, bigger alloy wheels and tires, black window trim and more, plus the extra horsepower.

The list of options is long, including Bose surround sound audio, 7-inch touchscreen navigation system with infotainment, and a number of interior packages.

Walkaround

This second-generation Boxster looks more muscular and angular today than it did in the first generation, when it appeared more feminine, flowing and delicate.

Big and bold front air scoops do the most to give this muscular impression, along with sharper sheetmetal in the front and at the sides. In the rear, there’s an integrated spoiler with brake light.

(A third generation Boxster called the 718 will be introduced for the 2017 model year.)

Interior

The materials inside the cabin are excellent, with a lot of leather-wrapped surfaces. The layout is straightforward and switchgear high quality, except it will take a while to figure out what all the buttons do, besides suffer from ambiguity. But the Bluetooth phone integration works well.

Not surprisingly, the seats are supportive; Porsche didn’t get where it is by building flawed sport seats. Also, the power convertible top is snug and insulated well.

There’s a small trunk in the front and a small trunk in the rear, and a small space of about 10 cubic feet in between, so the Boxster will work for road trips, as long as you pack modular, in small bags. It adds up to a bit more cargo space than the small front-engine roadsters.

Driving Impressions

The Boxster is a miracle of balance and one of the world’s most thrilling roadsters at speed. That’s even true for the base Boxster with its 2.7 liters and 265 horsepower. The 3.8-liter Spyder with its 375 horsepower is merely most-thrilling magnified.

When we say balance, we’re not just talking about the mid-engine layout with its ideal weight distribution, and horizontally opposed H-shaped engine with its low center of gravity. Not just mechanical balance, but spiritual balance as well, between high performance and comfort. That’s balance, not compromise. Superb driving dynamics on the open road in curves, and superb manners around town. Its chassis is tuned to do both.

It has electric power steering, a system that’s almost universal nowadays but inherently burdened by less feel and feedback than the old hydraulic way, but Porsche engineers solve it in the Boxster. The steering is almost perfectly weighted, while being consistent and precise. It feels intuitive, as if it can read your mind.

The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is designed to virtually do that. It’s available on the base Boxster and Boxster S, standard on the GTS. It broadens the car’s range, adjustable from Normal to Sport and Sport Plus modes.

The 6-speed manual shifts as slick as you could ask. On the other hand, and the twin-clutch PDK nicely balances Sport when you’re feeling aggressive and Comfort when you’re cruising.

For wind-in-your-hair exhilaration, the Boxster is hard to match. The extra power of the Boxster S, GTS or stripped-down Spyder is fun but not necessary, nor is the twin-clutch transmission.

Summary

We can’t think of a sports car that delivers more essence of high-octane pleasure than the Boxster. We don’t mean to slight the Mazda MX-5 in the bang-for-buck department, but if you’ve got the extra bucks, the Boxster is the next step. Look for possible deals on the 2016 models as dealers sell them down to make way for the new 2017 versions.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
