2019 BMW 8 Series vs. 2019 Porsche Boxster


A brand new model that knows how to blend sporty and modern elements in one look, the 2019 BMW 8-Series is a pretty tough competitor in the world of luxury sports cars. Consider how powerful its engine is and you will applaud it even more. On top of that, it has user-friendly technologies to meet your expectations.

As for the 2019 Porsche Boxster, expect no major changes. Just the same, you can praise it for its powerful and efficient engines, as well as its outstanding handling.

Design & Style

Blending modern elements with its sporty looks, the 2019 BMW 8-Series knows how to impress car buyers with its handsome design. When you get inside this car, you will notice that the car exudes class, and has the makings of a promising ride. There is plenty of space in the trunk too, even if there is a gracious amount of room to accommodate four passengers in the cabin.

A sports car that extremely looks good on the outside, many car buyers shy away from buying this car because of the fact that it can only seat up to two people. Seats are comfortable for this car, that’s for sure, and the cabin is attractive. This is thanks to all the soft-touch materials used in its construction. It is also sleek and chic even with elements of masculinity highlighted in its design and style.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 BMW 8-Series promises a lot and no one will ever get dismayed using its iDrive infotainment system. The user-friendly interface supports what the car offers in terms of technologies. Standard driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and BMW’s Active Protection System.

Promising an intuitive infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen and a sharp graphics display, it is easy to praise the 2019 Porsche Boxster in this aspect. Android Auto is missing in this car though. It is also disappointing that the only standard driver aids you get are the rearview camera, and the front and rear parking sensors.


Turbocharging the 2019 BMW 8-Series is an engine that can score up to 523 horsepower. This defeats any of the three versions of the turbocharged four-cylinders in the Porsche Boxster that can only end up with 300, 350, and 365 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Looking at both cars, you can say that both are sporty and elegant from the inside out. The difference lies in how many they seat, with the BMW seating four, and the Porsche seating two only. In terms of safety features, the 8-Series is an obvious winner as well. The same goes true for the engine performance factor. All in all, this battle is won by the BMW 8-Series.
