AutoGuide Reviews 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S

A four-cylinder Porsche? Wie schreklich! That was the initial reaction among purists to the news the Porsche's new 718 Boxster would be a four-cylinder turbo model. But this newest Boxster delivers a pure luxury sports car experience that will be hard - if not impossible - to match by its competitors (does Porsche really have any competitors?). AutoGuide recently reviewed the all-new 718 Boxster and has the following report:

AutoGuide confirms the 718 sounds amazing, drives even better and remains one of the most genuinely engaging sports cars you can buy right now...
