By  | 

Which vehicle would come out ahead if you put the Porsche 718 Boxster S up against the BMW M2 is a race on the drag strip? If you go on paper the M2 would be the winner but is this what happened?

The BMW M2 offers the turbocharged inline-six engine with 365 horses. The Porsche 718 Boxster S has the 2.5 litre turbocharged four engine and this offers up 350 horses. Thanks to the fact that the M2 has two more cylinders it does have the edge.

The Porsche 718 Boxster S isn’t a slow coach by any means. It does come in lighter than the BMW M2 and it offers the award winning PDK transmission from Porsche.

So if you go on the specs alone it is a very tight call as to which would come out ahead. However, you can see for yourself how the competition went down when the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S went up against the BMW M2.
