Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2021 Porsche 718 Boxster Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster gets a substantial boost in standard equipment. Every model now comes with automatic dual-zone climate control, heated seats, auto-dimming side mirrors, bi-xenon adaptive headlights, and Apple CarPlay. The lineup gains a six-cylinder variant called GTS 4.0.

The 718 Boxster has been on the market since 2017.

Choosing Your Porsche 718 Boxster

The 718 Boxster now comes in four trim levels: Boxster, Boxster T, Boxster S, and GTS 4.0. Pricing starts at $63,350 including destination for the base model and goes to $90,250 for the new GTS 4.0.

Engine Choices

The Boxster and T carry a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, while the S gets a more powerful 2.5-liter turbo-four. Six-cylinder power is reserved for the GTS 4.0.

2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder350 hp309 lb-ft22 mpg
4.0L 6-Cylinder394 hp309 lb-ft21 mpg

All models come standard with rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. The optional seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox costs $3,210 on the Boxster and S, and $3,750 on the T and GTS 4.0.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The 718 Boxster is a classic two-seat convertible with a mid-engine design. Cargo space is split between front and rear trunks, totaling 9.6 cubic feet. That's enough storage space for a weekend getaway, but not much more.

Safety Features

The 718 Boxster starts out minimally equipped with front and rear parking sensors only. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert can be added for $700.

Models equipped with the automatic transmission are eligible for a $1,670 bundle that equips adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.


The Boxster's standard infotainment system offers a 7-inch touchscreen, eight audio speakers, HD and satellite radio, two USB ports, 11 gigabytes of audio storage, and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Navigation is available for $2,320, and a phone box with wireless charging and signal boosting costs $560. Buyers can also upgrade to 10-speaker Bose surround-sound for $990. The top audio choice is a 12-speaker Burmester system, priced at $4,690.

718 Boxster - From $63,350

The 718 Boxster starts off with partial leather sport seats with power recline, dual-zone automatic climate control, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, LED taillights, a power soft top, and summer performance tires on 18-inch alloy wheels.

For $2,330, buyers can get fully powered 14-way seats with driver memory. The other seating choice, called Sport Seats Plus, offers full leather and extra side support for $810 with the standard power recline, or $3,830 with 18-way power and driver memory added.

The Premium Package ($4,140) tacks on ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, power-folding side mirrors, LED headlights, proximity key access, blind-spot monitoring, and the Bose system. The Sport Chrono Package adds a Sport Plus driving mode and analog stopwatch for $2,090.

For more aggressive handling, Porsche offers a 10-mm lowered suspension with active dampers ($1,790), and a torque-vectoring system with a locking differential for $1,320.

718 Boxster T - From $72,350

The Boxster T comes standard with the lowered adaptive suspension, the torque vectoring system, the Sport Chrono Package, performance exhaust, and 20-inch wheels. The Sport Seats Plus are also standard, but with fabric centers to help passengers stay put during corning.

The available Full Bucket Seats ($5,900) are made of lightweight materials and feature integrated thorax airbags, although they aren't heated and have power adjustment for height only.

718 Boxster S - From $75,350

The Boxster S gets the more powerful 2.5-liter turbo engine, plus red brake calipers and 19-inch wheels. Otherwise, the S shares its equipment and options with the standard Boxster.

718 Boxster GTS 4.0 - From $90,250

The new GTS combines the performance upgrades of the T with the 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine. According to Porsche, the GTS can scoot from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
