    Re: 718 Boxster

    Speaking of low end torque; I bought a 2016 Cayman GTS (found one of the last few left back in January), and I must confess that I could use a bit more torque at lower revs, and I could do with less noise. The sport exhaust sound is not as musical as on my 2008 Boxster RS60's sport exhaust; it just a lot of harsh noise...

    Yet, as funny as it is, that's the reason why I never grew very fond of the Boxster. The first generation was the worst.


    Re: 718 Boxster

    Not sure this has been posted yet but the GTS is coming. 375 hp, still the same engine I'm afraid.

    Do you know anything about the Spyder, what engine for example. Thanks.

    Just get an S and plug in the Techart magic box. 400hp.

    Re: 718 Boxster

    No, c'mon, the hunt for the strongest whatever is never ending - wait for Techart to tune the GTS from 375 to 420 (or so) or the 718.2 or ... Smiley Smiley

    Re: 718 Boxster

    Thanks for sharing ! Another review giving a bit more credit to the boxster/cayman range (I do still like my cayman very much!)


    Re: 718 Boxster

    Thanks for sharing. 

    I'm glad I bought one of the last 2016 Cayman GTS. I must confess however that I often wish for more low-rpm torque. In that respect, my Boxster RS60 feels better in around-town driving.

     


    Re: 718 Boxster

    I have a 718 base cayman, and I am in love with her. She has the sport exhaust, even though it couldnt match the 6 cl sound, is good enough and people like it. It is amazing how powerful is considering is the entry level to the porsche sportscar lineup.

    Less than 400 Boxster GTS imported to UK and last time I looked only three pre-owned ones on Porsche UK website. It's an amazing car and I still get a buzz every time I drive it and listen to that amazing engine and exhaust

    Went to my dealer recently, saw a nice black Boxster S 718 there...100k EUR. mail Looking at the lease cost, it was over 1500 EUR per month (no initial payment) for a 36 months lease. Just crazy... Of course I could get it cheaper but even 1200 EUR per month...for a Boxster S? Seriously?! angry My Audi dealer offered me a R8 V10 (non Plus) Coupe for 1200 EUR per month a while ago... mail

    I'm not sure that is entirely fair. It is down to the Boxster owners to post about their cars. I post about the cars that I own including the Boxster Spyder which is a keeper.

    Quite agree - here in the UK GBP 70k + for a four cylinder sports car with a few options - even a Porsche - is crazy money. Smiley Sadly I think my Porsche buying days are over Smiley

    Agreed. Smiley We are not elitist and I often complain about certain prices for certain cars but this doesn't mean we support praising certain cars without a reason. The Boxster is a nice little sports car but it is one of many. Rennteam is not a website where owners brag about their cars but where owners report their experiences and post some nice photos. Actually, I'd say that Rennteam is the most "honest" website when it comes to cars because owners report the good and the bad and many even own various different cars. Every Boxster owner is more than welcomed to post his experience and post photos, we all appreciate it. However, the Boxster is one of many...like I said before. Smiley

    Re: 718 Boxster

    Agreed. Look how diverse too, some have always the latest newest cars and flip every year, some just like sport cars, any kind any price, some have older ones and hang on to them forever, some have very unique cars only few people in the world own, and some own true vintage car icons.

    Sadly Porsche ridiculous prices is putting a lot of people off the new models. That said there are still great used cars out there, cars age a lot better than they did 20 years ago.

    It seems to be, what we call in England “Catch 22”. There is minimal posts here about Boxster / Cayman (apart from GT4) so any new blood coming here looking for Boxster / Cayman talk sees very little and goes elsewhere. When I first joined the Rennteam Family 13 years ago there was a very healthy Boxster community, we used to arrange regular meetings. We’ve met some really great people, too, Reginos, Porsche-jeck, wtsnet, RichC, John H, Dr.Phil easy-rider  to name some that spring to mind. John H is now the only one who contributes here regularly. So but it has sadly and gradually faded away. When we received our latest Boxster GTS there was quite a good discussion, unfortunately it nearly all disappeared with the unfortunate data loss saga. Only the top end cars now have much following here, and I fully accept it’s not the fault of Rennteam, but hence a feeling - to me at any rate, rightly or wrongly - that RT has gone up market and away from all bar the most exclusive cars and wealthy individuals.

    Re: 718 Boxster

    In reality it is a lot of the same people here but they have gone upmarket. I had my first Porsche, a Boxster, at age 30. First 911 at 35. First Ferrari and Aston at 40... and so on. Planning on first Lamborghini (Urus) by 50 and first Bentley (or RR, SUVs) by 55 kiss
