2016 Nissan 370Z vs. 2015 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan 370Z and the Porsche Boxster in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan 370Z as you will with the Porsche Boxster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Nissan 370Z is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche Boxster. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan 370Z carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Boxster.

Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Nissan 370Z is slightly shorter than the Porsche Boxster, which may make it easier to park.

With similar torque, the Nissan 370Z and the Porsche Boxster do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

The Nissan 370Z has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Porsche Boxster, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan 370Z is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan 370Z and the Porsche Boxster. The Nissan 370Z has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Boxster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

The basic warranty of the Nissan 370Z is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Boxster.
