Chris Harris On The New Porsche Boxster's Unfavourable "Personality Transplant"

In an episode of Chris Harris Drives, the man gives his thoughts on the new 718 Boxster and its downsized powerplant

Remind me later

Mirroring Harris’ thoughts on the 718 Cayman S in the most recent Top Gear series (this particular video came out before the series before appearing recently on YouTube), the man concludes that there’s a lot to like about the new four-cylinder Boxster, despite the change in noise.

As for our two-penneth, we miss the noise, but it’s hard to ignore the Boxster’s newfound power and improved chassis.

The debate about the 718 Boxster and Cayman’s 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre powerplants will no doubt rumble on for some time. Where do you stand?
