Convenience
With the Porsche 718 Boxster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the smart EQ fortwo, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 smart EQ fortwo is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 718 Boxster.
