2018 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2018 Nissan 370Z

The 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster is a top class model with all the features and specification you can expect from a luxury car brand. On the other hand, the 2018 Nissan 370Z is another masterpiece in the auto industry. It can be difficult to make a choice between the two, as both are tough rivals. Let us make a comparison and see why Porsche is the better choice.

Design & Style

For the 2018 Nissan 370Z, we have mixed reviews for the level of comfort offered. The visibility is challenged as well. You may have to opt for higher trims that come with a rearview camera. The interior features cloth upholstery, and the seating options include Recaro sports seats and leather seats. The interior styling is average, and the materials used inside are a mix of hard plastic and cloth.

Speaking of the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster, it comes with a stylish and modern interior, with a capacity to hold up to 2 people. The small size of the vehicle is just an illusion, as there is plenty of space inside the car. You get a smooth ride without any noise inside the cabin, even at top speeds.

Technology & Safety

Taking a look at the car’s technology, the 2018 Nissan 370Z comes with a basic infotainment system. Audio streaming is not supported by the standard Bluetooth connection, and only the top trims come with features like rearview camera, navigation and touch screen. There are no advanced driver assistance features in the base model.

Some of the standard features in the Porsche 718 Boxster include automatic climate control, satellite radio, 6-speaker sound system, Bluetooth and infotainment system with 7-inch touch screen. With excellent graphics and responsive touch screen, the Boxster is a complete package with a good number of tech features.


The Nissan 370Z comes with a V6 engine equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission. It is not quite as powerful as V8 but has enough power to move the vehicle easily. You have an option to upgrade to 7-speed automatic transmission.

On the other hand, the base model comes equipped with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers smooth acceleration even at top speeds. It can easily go up to 60 mph in under 5 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Both Porsche and Nissan are reputable brands in the automobile industry, but the former has a different level of brand value. It outclasses other rivals in terms of smooth handling and exceptional performance. 370Z has its own set of attributes, but Porsche Boxster is a step ahead in this regard.
