I am selling my 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 for a 718 Boxster S. This will be my 3rd Boxster. I had a RS60 and a 2014 Boxster S with PDK...I didn't like the PDK at all, going back to a manual. The Corvette has an awesome V8 sound, especially with the performance exhaust option but it is not as much fun do drive as the Boxster in my opinion. The Corvette handles great and is a very fast car. The new 718 did not sound that great, it took me a few test drives and a few days of thinking about the sound...I owned two Subaru cars - WRX and STI - n the past and loved the way they sounded. I can see how people say the new 718 sounds like a Subaru, particularly during initial start up, but I does have a distinctive sound. On my second test drive I really loved the new sound of the 718. Just my opinion...I did take a older 911 out to see the difference in engine noise and it didn't really scream in the cabin of the car either. I have a friend with a 997 GTS and he has the sport exhaust and he is always complaining about how it is not loud enough for him...I think you will be happy with the Corvette or the 718. Don't let everyone that has an old Boxster tell you how great theirs is compared to the new one...dive them both and decide for yourself. I have owned both and prefer the 718.
