A Sophisticated Convertible, the Porsche 718 Boxster

Ready to experience the distillation of pure, simple motoring joy? If so, consider Carhopper’s Porsche 718 Boxster now available to rent in Los Angeles near LAX, Downtown Beverly Hills, or Central West Hollywood. The latest take from the authority of balanced mid-engined performance, the 718 applies technologies from across Porsche’s street and track offerings. This is done to produce a lighter, more fuel efficient car than it’s predecessor while also increasing the performance envelope. The resultant 718 Boxster in Los Angeles is the perfect choice for sophisticated, luxurious travel under the open skies of sunny Newport Beach.

Design

From the outside, you’ll immediately notice that the Porsche 718 Boxster is pure Porsche: engine in the middle, “frunk” up front, and power sent to the rear wheels. As one could expect, this Porsche 718 Boxster is eager to turn in to corners, and remains balanced and poised even as you drive the car harder and faster. Don’t let the small displacement turbocharged flat four engine deceive you, as power is well matched to the weight of the 718 Boxster and will not leave you wanting for more. Unlike many comparable luxury sports cars, this Porsche has enough power to be exploited without dominating the driving experience. Looking to link a few sweeping turns together, top down, sun on your face in Miami near Brickell, the lively streets of Miami Beach, or even take a drive up the coast to Ft. Lauderdale’s best beaches? Then the 718 Boxster from Carhopper is the car for your next trip.

The Ride

When settling into the standard power seat, you’ll immediately notice the small size of the 718 Boxster, yet there’s plenty of room for you and a passenger.  The tiny footprint of the 718 means maximum agility, and the thickly-rimmed sport steering wheel is all you’ll need to get the Boxster dancing. You have the option to choose your own gears if so desired, and that can be done with the central shifter or steering wheel mounted paddles. From zero, this turbocharged luxury convertible will hit sixty miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds.
