2016 Porsche Boxster Walk Around


This second-generation Boxster looks more muscular and angular today than it did in the first generation, when it appeared more feminine, flowing and delicate.

Big and bold front air scoops do the most to give this muscular impression, along with sharper sheetmetal in the front and at the sides. In the rear, there’s an integrated spoiler with brake light.

(A third generation Boxster called the 718 will be introduced for the 2017 model year.)

Interior

The materials inside the cabin are excellent, with a lot of leather-wrapped surfaces. The layout is straightforward and switchgear high quality, except it will take a while to figure out what all the buttons do, besides suffer from ambiguity. But the Bluetooth phone integration works well.

Not surprisingly, the seats are supportive; Porsche didn’t get where it is by building flawed sport seats. Also, the power convertible top is snug and insulated well.

There’s a small trunk in the front and a small trunk in the rear, and a small space of about 10 cubic feet in between, so the Boxster will work for road trips, as long as you pack modular, in small bags. It adds up to a bit more cargo space than the small front-engine roadsters.
