Hello So, the time has come to sell my 2012 E250 coupe and get back into an exciting petrol. Both my girlfriend and I have narrowed it down to a 2012-13 Boxster S or 2012-14 C63 Coupe. Not a likely comparison I agree but both offer a snippet of what we are looking for. However having driven both at length I'm still confused. Boxster S Positives We plan to tour around Europe and having previously done so in s a 987 S we've both agreed that the trip was more exciting in a convertible. The other half and I live by the seaside and enjoy early morning blasts with the top down. The 987 really enhanced the way we spent our weekends. Compared to a 987 the 981 is even quicker, better looking and offers a rewarding drive. I like spirited drives and the Porsche inspires confidence at speed. Arguably better looks and higher quality interior. Negatives Not a great selection at £35-40k though residuals are higher so cheaper on a PCP. Quick though will probably get hustled by a Focus or Seat at the lights. Not that 0-60 matter but the game has changed and is the Porsche out of its depth. Poor spec with little or no examples sub £40k with PSE, so £2k needed to add. C63 Positives Noise. Power. Only car which has ever made me giggle when floored. The way it picks up speed is scary. On a extended test drive I couldn't quite believe the in gear performance. Great spec with all the luxuries I have in my current E250 4 sears are useful and larger boot. Negatives Mpg, heard it's 220 per tank! Any real world examples? The other half doesn't think it's particularly special to look at. She thinks it's a normal C class with a big engine. Does she have a point? I didn't have a chance to push it on the test drive, how do they handle? Do I only want it for the epic engine? Anyone offer any other advice. I must have spent the past 2 weeks reading old threads and watching videos. I've been out in both for a good couple of hours and still can't decide. Head says Porsche, heart C63!
