Our Porsche 718 Boxster rental car is one of the finest handling open-top sports cars on the market, with a dazzling chassis and turbo charged engine combined with a very classy two seater interior and an exterior that looks stunning, the overall package is pure Porsche which makes this a hugely desirable hire car choice.
This roadster is more than just a drop-top town cruiser, it’s a real sports car in every way imaginable. The car handles perfectly with impeccable balance, enormous levels of grip and massive amounts of turbocharged power all making for an overall car hire vehicle that is hard to match. The car is more expensive than any of its close rivals but as it is so special to drive it is the number one choice in this class for renting in the UK.
With similar four-point xenon headlights as seen on the 911, large LED rear light clusters, between which sits a raised black bar boot spoiler, the car looks sharp, athletic and immortal.

In the Boxster, Porsche have achieved a bespoke high-class finish with impressive material choices including alloys and leathers that are used on all the tactile areas and switches. The driving position really is optimal; fully driver focused sat low to the ground with supportive seats which are comfortable on long distance car hire journeys. The steering wheel and pedals are perfectly positioned and the visibility is good with the roof up and uninterrupted with it down. The latest Porsche infotainment system has high-definition maps, responsive touch-screen and connectivity to your Smartphone via Apple CarPlay.
For those looking for a rental car for a road trip you can count on the deep luggage area in the front to accommodate a large suitcase, while smaller items can fitted in to the additional compartment at the back making our rental Boxster one of the most practical two-seat sports cars on the road.

The Porsche Boxster:
The Porsche Boxster was first launched in 1997. This was a very difficult period in Porsche's history and the Boxster was an instant hit with both the press and public.
When the Porsche Boxster Convertible first hit the market it generated plenty of comments from Porsche enthusiasts regarding Its "Boy Scout tent" like canvass roof but since Porsche explained it was homage to the iconic 550 Spyder the fans loved it. Today the roof has evolved and is no longer tent like.
