2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S vs BMW M2: It’s Much Tighter Than It Looks

By  | 

The battle between the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S and the BMW M2 in a drag race would be much tighter than it looks. However, if you take the spec sheet into account then it would be the M2 that would come out ahead, slightly.

The BMW M2 offers up the turbocharged inline-6 engine that gives up 365 horses and this is 15 horsepower more than what the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster can offer from the 2.5 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine. The M2 also has an additional two more cylinders.

The 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S does put up a fight thanks to it having its own advantages. The vehicle does come in lighter than the BMW M2 and of course it does offer up the PDK award winning transmission from Porsche.

On paper it does look as though the race between the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S and the BMW M2 would be very tight but you can check out which is the faster of the two in the video.

Are you going for the BMW M2 or would you choose the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S?
