Sanjay's review on Porsche Boxster Base Tiptronic
Year of Manufacture : 2011 | Driven no. of Kms. : NA
- Pros: The Porsche Boxster is beautiful to look at, suitably epic to drive, and makes a good ownership proposition
- Cons: It’s expensive to buy, and could do with a bit more standard kit
There are two flat-six engines available, a 2.7 in the Boxster and a 3.4 in the Boxster S. Both give great pace, but the S is truly rapid, pulling strongly from 2500rpm and really flying once you’ve passed 5000rpm. The 2.7 is plenty quick enough for most tastes, though, and feels a lot faster than its 0-62mph time of 5.8 seconds suggests. Both versions are even quicker with the optional seven-speed PDK semi-auto gearbox fitted. Porsche’s roadster will demolish any B-road. You can carry huge speed through corners, and the vast rear-end grip allows you to power out of twists and turns even faster than you went in to them. Despite the Boxster’s brilliant body control, it rides remarkably smoothly. The electric power steering, which could have been a weak point, certainly isn’t; it allows you to place the car accurately and it’s well weighted, too.
