One of the most popular luxury rentals, a Porsche Boxster is a great choice if you are looking for high performance and supreme luxury. With an optimal mid-engine configuration, near-perfect suspension tuning and famously effective brakes, the Porsche Boxster handles skillfully and is a genuine joy to drive.
It is available in three trim levels, the base Boxster, the sportier Boxster S and the special edition Boxster Spyder, which is a lighter and more extreme version of the Boxster S. Power comes from a delightfully vocal 2.9-liter non-direct injection flat-six that develops 303 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque in the Boxster, and a 3.4-liter engine which produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque in the Boxster S, increased to a whacking 320 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque in the Boxster Spyder. Fitted as standard is a six-speed manual gearbox that is perfectly matched to the characteristics of the engine and executes rapid and precise gear changes. The steering is wonderfully weighted, sharp and incisive and the brakes are faultless, giving the Porsche Boxster an exemplary and controllable performance even at high speeds.
As a convertible the Boxster really comes into its own, and the electrically folding fabric roof of the Boxster and Boxster S is easy to operate, making this a great cabriolet for everyday use. This is a really enjoyable car to drive, and when you drop the top, the fun really begins as you hear the sonorous growl of the beautiful flat six engine and savour the freshness of the great outdoors.
