On the outside, the 718 Boxster is unmistakably Porsche

Under the hood of the 718 Boxster is a 2.0-liter flat-4 that’s capable of making 295 horsepower and a larger, turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-4 that can produce 345 horsepower. Power is sent to the rear with Porsche’s 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe which is the company’s proprietary dual-clutch gearbox.

The 718 Boxster is a stunning vehicle from any angle

With the 928-generation, Porsche gave the Boxster, especially the Boxster S more in the way of performance. The latter’s turbocharger uses Variable Turbine Geometry. Both variants also have limited-slip differentials is also optional since the second generation.

With these performance features, the 718 Boxster’s 2.0-liter can pull really well from low RPMs. The turbo kicks in at around 2000 RPM. The fun starts at around 7000 RPM where you’ll feel a continuous surge in acceleration.

Currently, the 718 Boxster’s style has evolved with the majority of the visual changes done to its rear end. It now has this black colored bar linking it’s two taillights. Other new exterior features include a new pair of headlights as well as a pair of sleeker side-mirrors.

Inside, the Porsche 718 Boxster 2020 is every bit as comfortable as it’s competitors. The driver’s seat is electronically adjustable, and the seats themselves can properly hold you in place during spirited driving. A racing-spec bucket type seat is also optional.

You can also get a brilliant sounding Bose six-speaker system and the Porsche Communication Management tied up to a crisp looking touchscreen unit. This system handles all of your communication and all of your connectivity needs seamlessly and simply.

The interior is comfortable and the arrangement isn't that different from normal vehicles

Note that while the 718 Boxster has a good amount of cubby holes and a sizable interior space, rear trunk space can be a bit restricted due to the space taken up by the folding roof.

In terms of safety, the 718 Boxster is also well equipped in dealing with untoward incidents. On the passive side, it comes with dual front airbags, side airbags, curtain airbags, an antilock braking system with EBD, stability control, roll-over protection and a set of ceramic composite brakes.

II. Why would you want to buy a 2020 Porsche 718 Boxster

First off, Porsche cars themselves, heck, even the brand itself just oozes personality and charisma. Sure, the basic shape of their cars didn’t change throughout the years but that’s really one of the mainstays of the brand. It provides their cars the ability to pop out of the crowd and let’s admit it, Porsche’s models are the epitome of the German performance.

It can only fit only two passengers but it's really comfortable though

Now while a Porsche car, specifically the 718 Boxster, is indeed a fun to drive car from a brand that’s steep in history, there are some things that you’ll have to do without. Being a two-door roadster, it can only seat two people and being a mid-engine convertible, trunk space can be a bit tight if you’re planning to bring two more “maletas” with you.

In short, the 718 Porsche Boxster is not a practical car. It does have the potential to return an impressive 13.6 km/l with the automatic PDK seven-speed gearbox.
