Review

The Porsche 718 Boxster and the Lotus Elise are two of the finest sports cars on the road. Here we test their latest range-topping versions against each other: the Porsche 718 Boxster S takes on the Lotus Elise Cup 250 on some of Britain’s greatest roads.

Will our review show that the Lotus Elise has the lightweight charm and interaction to see off its German rival? Or will the Porsche 718 Boxster, which now has a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, impress with its extra power and superior refinement?

The Boxster has lost interest with that engine.
