What's New in the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster?

There are no notable changes to the Porsche 718 Boxster for the 2019 model year. See the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster models for sale near you.

Which 718 Boxster is the Best?

Yes, the Boxster S comes with a hefty price premium, but its bigger engine is the vastly more appealing choice over the base model. The GTS is great, but not great enough to justify the jump in price. We'd also stick with the 6-speed manual and specify PASM, the Sport Exhaust and the 10-way power seats with heating and ventilation (a must for a convertible). Find a Porsche 718 Boxster for sale.

How Much Does a 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Cost?

The 2019 718 Boxster is available in Boxster and Boxster S models, which largely differ by engine. The 718 Cayman is the coupe version and is reviewed separately.

The base Boxster ($60,250) comes standard with 18-in wheels, summer performance tires, a fully powered retractable soft-top roof, a wind deflector, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights, LED running lights, single-zone automatic climate control, power reclining front seats (manual fore-aft and height adjustment), partial leather seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) touchscreen interface, two USB ports, a media-player interface, a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack, satellite radio, an HD Radio and a 6-speaker sound system.

The Boxster S ($72,650) adds a bigger engine and 19-in wheels.

The Boxster GTS ($84,050) adds an extra 15 hp to the engine in the S model while adding a sporty appearance package that includes 20-in Carrera S wheels as standard and a leather and Alcantara interior.

The options list is enormous, ranging from performance enhancements and convenience equipment to customization items like color-keyed trim pieces. Virtually everything can be added a la carte, though there are a handful of packages available to make ordering a little easier.

Performance-enhancing items include the PDK automatic transmission, the PASM adjustable suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, the torque-vectoring rear differential, a sport exhaust, and the Sport Chrono package (extra drive modes, a stability control sport mode and launch control with PDK). Comfort and convenience items include adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system, keyless entry, and ignition, LED headlights, power-folding mirrors, auto-dimming mirrors and automatic wipers (packaged together), dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated multifunction steering wheel, 10-way power seats (including 4-way lumbar and memory functions), 14-way adaptive sport seats (adds adjustable side and bottom bolsters, wider shoulder bolsters and a power-adjustable steering wheel), heated seats, ventilated seats, a full leather interior, a navigation system, a Bose Surround Sound audio system, a more expensive Burmester Surround Sound audio system, and Porsche Connect (includes Apple CarPlay and a variety of safety remote services).

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster vs the competition

2019 Porsche 718 Cayman -- The 718 Cayman is, quite simply, the same car as the Boxster, but with a fixed roof. This hatchback design not only looks cool, but it makes for a car that's more practical and more affordable than the Boxster, but you'd be missing out on drop-top driving pleasure.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette -- The Corvette is a very different kind of performance car than the 718 Boxster having a front-engine layout and double the cylinders, but the two are in a similar price range and offer similar levels of driving thrills.

2019 Jaguar F-Type -- This Jaguar is another great option for a stylish luxury roadster in this price range and has a wide variety under the hood with your choice of 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines. It lacks the 718's precision but boasts a flamboyant character and gorgeous styling.

Used Porsche 911 Cabriolet -- It costs more than the Boxster, but a used one should have a comparable price (and Porsche has a very good certified pre-owned program). The 911 Cabriolet is one of the finest convertibles and sports cars you can buy, and it certainly betters the Boxster's practicality given its more spacious cabin, although the back seats of the 911 are pretty useless.
