|Porsche Boxster 981 PDK Review|
Bumps on the road were very well controlled and the ride was excellent with equally good handling around corners. The roof folds down very quickly using a button in the centre console between the seats. On a rainy day there did seem to be a tendency for drips of water to come onto the driver's seat when the door was open as there is obviously no gutter along the roof.
The only two negatives I could find while using the car were the heater and air conditioning controls which seemed overly fiddly and not really in keeping with a premium car. Of more concern was the juddering from the front wheels/steering at low speed with the steering on heavy lock. The vibration from the wheels was not a pleasant sound which I thought was a fault with the car. On mentioning to Porsche when handing the car back I was told that this is a standard issue with the car having very low profile tyres which seems a very disappointing situation with a brand new car of this value.
Overall my impression of the Porsche Boxster 981 PDK were very favourable and it is certainly a car I would consider if I no longer have the need for a 4 seater. Even though the 911 has small rear seats they are still suitable for emergency use or for longer journeys with children.
