2021 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2021 BMW Z4 Roadster

Both the 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster and 2021 BMW Z4 Roadster are, without a doubt, amazing cars to drive. They have powerful engines, beauty designs, and all the bells and whistles that one can expect from a car of their prestige. However, just how similar are they and are there any differences worth noting? Let’s take a look.

Design & Style

With regard to interior features, both cars are almost identical in their offerings. Both come with luxury features, such as multi-zone air conditioning and heated front seats and steering wheel. The 718 Boxster, however, does come with an additional feature of cooled front seats for a little more comfort while you are driving. If you are someone who utilises the trunk frequently, you may also want to take note that only the 718 Boxster comes with remote trunk release.

Technology & Safety

Standard in both vehicles are rear-view cameras, break assist, blind spot monitor, rear parking aid, pressure monitor, cruise control, adaptive cruise control, stability control, traction control, brake ABS system, rollover protection bars, 4 wheel disc brake, passenger and driver front and knee airbag, and front side impact airbags. We find these to be pretty comprehensive features, but if it’s not enough for you, the 718 Boxster has infotainment features that the Z4 lacks, such as HD radio and CD player.


Superior balance is provided by a lower center of gravity involving the Boxster’s turbocharged flat engine, coupled with its sporty chassis and mid-engine design. Its lineup of horizontally opposed four- and six-cylinder engines also gives it plenty of power that accompanies its sharp handling.

The Z4 with its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder also comes with plenty of torque. However, the 718 Boxster has significantly more horsepower at higher rpm. For the adrenaline junkies, the 718 Boxster will give you the rush that you crave when driving at high speeds.

The Bottom Line

Though both cars have many similarities, there are some key differences as well that set them apart. It is clear that the 718 Boxster is the clear winner after comparing the two models. The 718 Boxster is geared towards high performance. This allows the driver to enjoy the wind rushing through their hair as they take full advantage of its powerful engines. Although the 718 Boxster is set at a higher price point than the Z4, it provides the owner with the luxury and elegance that they deserve.
