Porsche Boxster (2012-2016) review - all the sportscar you might ever need - Interior and Tech

The ultimate open top sports car?

Interior and Tech

The Boxster’s cabin is a reassuringly comfortable and well organised place to be. Both the driving position and the shaping and support of the seats nudge perfection while ergonomics, build and finish have never been better. It’s pretty spacious, too, with plenty of leg- and headroom for driver and passenger. The usefully shaped boots in the nose and tail add up to a respectable 280-litres luggage of volume. There are also a number of handy cubbies in the interior, including a lockable glovebox.

The fabric roof will open or close in just nine seconds and it’s all done with just the press of a button (rather than having to secure it manually as you did before). Excellent insulation means it keeps the cabin quiet and free of draughts when it is in place.

Standard kit isn’t exactly generous but does include Alcantara-trimmed sports seats with electrically adjustable backrests, 18-inch alloy wheels, a CD stereo with a 7-inch colour touchscreen, auto headlights, air conditioning and a universal audio interface offering a multitude of connectivity options. In addition to this, the Cayman S gets larger 19-inch alloy wheels, a part leather interior and Bi-Xenon headlights.
