Which Boxster is the Best?

Thanks to their timeless styling, solid build quality and favorable driving dynamics, prior-generation Boxsters have enjoyed good resale value and may prove to be collectible over time. For 2015, the Boxster is more distinct in appearance, more solid and even more fun to drive, with newfound refinement and impressive fuel economy to boot. The 2015 Porsche Boxster may be considered a good investment that can be enjoyed on every day, especially sunny ones. Find a Porsche Boxster for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 Porsche Boxster Cost?

Porsche offers the 2015 Boxster in three trims: Base, S and GTS. All models come nicely equipped, and in typical Porsche style, offer a dizzying array of options, colors and packages.

The Boxster ($52,395) includes a 6-speed manual transmission, a power retractable top with a glass rear window, automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth hands-free cellphone connectivity, a 4-speaker 50-watt AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo with a 7-in color display, manual seats with power recline, 18-in alloy wheels, power windows, power locks, heated side mirrors, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and partial leather interior trim.

The Boxster S ($64,295) adds a more powerful engine, 19-in alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlamps and a 7-speaker audio upgrade.

The Boxster GTS ($74,495) brings more horsepower and torque plus 20-in Carrera S wheels, unique exterior body work and lower trim, Porsche Sport Seats, the Sport Chrono package, Porsche Dynamic Light System and PASM.

The options list for both cars is nearly as long as "War and Peace." One of the more desirable options is Porsche's quick-shifting 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission with shift paddles, which will run you $3,200. Another $7,400 buys high-performance ceramic brakes. Adaptive suspension, torque vectoring and a Sport Chrono package for the racetrack are also available, though if you add them together with the PDK and ceramic brakes, be sure to budget an additional $16,000 for all these driver technologies, not including any wheel or tire upgrades.

More options include the Burmester audio upgrade, a Carbon Fiber package, adaptive speed control, a carbon and leather steering wheel and Adaptive Sports Bucket seats. Along the way, you can also choose from numerous paint, interior trim and wheel choices. Check off every possible option, and the Porsche Boxster's price can easily exceed $100,000.

Competition

2015 Porsche Boxster vs the competition

Audi TT -- Audi's stylish TT roadster costs less and is better equipped than the Boxster, but only the 265-hp TTS can keep up with the Boxster from a standing start. However, the TT's front-wheel-drive architecture prevents it from catching the Porsche when it comes to feedback and rewarding driving dynamics.

BMW Z4 -- The BMW Z4 offers a roadster experience that's heavy on luxury at the expense of ultimate sportiness. The sDrive35is model's ability to accelerate to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds makes it nearly as quick as the Boxster S, but its handling isn't quite as precise and its fuel economy is not as high.

Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class -- With its folding metal-and-glass retractable roof, the SLK is heavier and more luxury-inclined than the featherweight Boxster. The SLK55 AMG is downright muscular with its 415-hp V8 and, with a claimed 0-to-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds, it is the only competitor in this set that can keep up with the Boxster S.

Used Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet -- A 2010-2013 911 Carrera Cabriolet offers more performance and features, and it will cost about the same as a well-equipped S or GTS.
