Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche 718 Boxster as you will with the Porsche 911, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
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 Porsche 718 Boxster is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Porsche 718 Boxster and the Porsche 911 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche 718 Boxster is much slimmer than the Porsche 911, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Porsche 718 Boxster is slightly shorter than the Porsche 911, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Porsche 718 Boxster has about the same turning radius as the Porsche 911, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 718 Boxster is significantly less powerful than the Porsche 911. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche 718 Boxster doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche 911.

Utility
The Porsche 718 Boxster has less seating than the Porsche 911, making the Porsche 911 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Porsche 718 Boxster comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
