Porsche Boxster 3.4 S 2d PDK (2013/13) - Owner Review

Surprising amount of luggage space for a sports car - far more than in a Jaguar F type or Aston Martin Vantage.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Excellent - sharper than 911 (and I have driven a 991) but not as 'planted'. Suprising thing is that the chassis could take more pwer but I suspect Porsche won't be doing that as they want to keep the more powerful engines for the Carrera.

What's it like to park?
A nightmare - don't buy it without park assist.
