2022 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2022 Tesla Model X

Will the world’s best all-electric and petrol sports cars be Tesla or Porsche? We compare the latest Model X to the upcoming 718 Boxster to find out that Porsche has announced an all-electric version. What will change in 2022 from today? How will these cars compare then, when there’s no more petrol? Will Porsche keep up with Tesla Motors in 2022 when they have no more fuel cell technology? Let’s see what we can expect from these two incredible companies and why we think 2022 Porsche 718 Boxster will win.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

 Both cars are revolutionary in their design. The 718 looks to build upon Porsche’s current sportscar theme while adding a hint of futuristic design; while Tesla looked to make an EV with as many superlatives as possible, creating a truly special looking car that performs and handles exceptionally well, even when it is compared to much more expensive hypercars like the Bugatti Chiron or Ferrari LaFerrari. Both cars work hard at being iconic, but in different ways; one is classically beautiful, while another attempts to emulate alien technology. One could say that both designs successfully reach their goals; there’s no doubt that every time you see either car on a highway, you will know exactly what it is – though you might not recognize it from any other angle.

  • Interior Design

The interior of both cars are roomy, with plenty of legroom and storage areas. Both models are equipped with large touchscreens that manage all of their dashboard functions; however, we prefer how simple and clean it is in the 2022 Porsche 718 Boxster compared to how cluttered it looks in Tesla’s vehicle. The steering wheel controls on each car take some getting used to, but once you’ve figured them out, they’re both user-friendly.

Technology & Safety

In terms of technology, both vehicles are similar in many respects; however, you can expect that safety features will be more advanced in Tesla due to current advancements in autonomous driving and smart technology. For example, traffic signals and stop signs are expected to become obsolete by 2026 due to adaptive speed control (able to accelerate as needed while maintaining speed limit) and vehicle-to-vehicle communication (can exchange data with other cars). While there’s still debate as to whether these features will actually come to fruition, we have a feeling it’s only a matter of time before they do. Until then, enjoy your time behind the wheel today!


The Porsche 718 Boxster has an MSRP of $70,000 and the Tesla Model X $80,000. The Porsche can go from 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds with a top speed of 175 mph, while the Tesla can do it in 4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The Porsche has 265 horsepower, while the Tesla has 463 horsepower. Both cars have regenerative braking systems to help charge the battery when slowing down or driving downhill.

The Bottom Line

Comparing these two vehicles is like comparing apples to oranges. The obvious difference here is that you have a traditional sports car with a new-age electric sports car, the 2022 Porsche 718 Boxster. It may seem like comparing a ship to an ocean liner, but there are similarities in terms of performance and cost on both ends of the spectrum. So, which vehicle reigns supreme? While both vehicles are great for their intended purposes, it’s safe to say that the 2022 Porsche 718 Boxster is better than the 2022 Tesla Model X for average drivers in 2022 with basic lifestyles and desires for good performance and efficiency at reasonable prices.
