Where before you could buy a new Boxster for significantly under £40,000, these days, that's no longer possible. This '718' model starts at around £47,000 in 2.0-litre turbo form - the T version with the same 300PS engine costs around £52,000. You're looking at around £56,000 for the Boxster in 2.5-litre 350PS turbo 'S' guise. There's also a GTS 4.0-litre 400PS model costing around £66,000. And a unique 6 cylinder model, the Spyder, with 420PS and a £74,000 price tag.
Equipment-wise, the base-spec Boxster features 19" alloy wheels, auto stop/start and sports mode, remote control hood operation, audio CD with colour touch-screen control, a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity and a three year warranty.
A central feature of the new interior is Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with mobile phone preparation, audio interfaces and the Sound Package Plus with 110 watts of audio power. PCM can be extended with optional modules to thoroughly adapt it to personal requirements. For instance, the navigation module including voice control is available, which makes it easy to input driving destinations. In addition, the Connect Plus module is available as an extension of the navigation module; it provides online navigation services and enhanced online audio features. With Porsche Vehicle Tracking System Plus (PVTS+) as standard, the 718 Boxster offers the highest class of vehicle security.
All new Boxster customers also get the opportunity to explore the potential of their car by participating in a complimentary course at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone. It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable day you could spend with your new toy.
