Power Ranked 2008 Porsche Boxster Limited Edition S RWD better.
"The Porsche has the ability to lay down its power in a straight line and coming out of curve much more than a Z4M. The adaptive suspension and sport exhaust instantly turn the limited edition Boxster into a car that feels like its riding on rails through corners."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2008 Porsche Boxster Limited Edition S RWD better.
"A surprisingly large front trunk space (frunk) supplements a smaller rear cargo space in the trunk behind the engine. Combining both gives the Boxster much more space than the Z4."
