Although the Boxster initially rode on the coattails of the legendary 911 when it debuted two decades ago, Porsche's roadster has since become an icon in its own right. For 2017, Porsche added 718 to its name as a nod to its motorsports pedigree, but otherwise this is still the same recognizable two-seater roadster the Boxster always been.

"As expected, the Porsche handles and accelerates like a precision sports car. Steering response is very precise and acceleration is powerful, when you need it."

"The back-up camera will stay on even when car is not in reverse. Given "tightness" of stick shift, this can be problematic. Because you are looking at rear pic, you may believe you are in reverse but are in fact in 1st."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
