It’s hard to believe, but the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster is the company's slowest selling model. This year, the German automaker is on pace to sell just a few thousand examples of this two-seat convertible. And here’s the irony of it: The 718 Boxster may be Porsche’s best sports car. Yes, even better than the beloved 911.
Blasphemous? Maybe. Just plain stupid? Possibly. But the 718 Boxster really is that good. In fact, Porsche’s mid-engine Boxster is one of the world’s great sports cars, at any price. Oh, did I mention that it costs about $45,000 less than a 911 Cabriolet? That’s right, the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster is also one of Porsche’s most affordable vehicles. It competes with the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLC, Chevrolet Corvette, Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder, and Audi TT.
