Some people spend millions of dollars on stuff like Ferrari FXX K or McLaren P1 GTR in search of that race car thrill that, on the weekends, make them feel like a racing driver. What they get though, most of the time, is a good deal of anxiety brought on by the fact that those monsters are incredibly hard to drive. What they should do is spend like 60 grand on a Porsche 718 Boxster S and spend the rest renting a race track all to themselves!
Then, as you can see in this onboard video of the Porsche 718 Boxster S tackling the legendary Magny-Cours circuit in France, the joy of driving will be boundless. Here you won’t be scared that any minute you may spin out of control and die in a fiery crash. Nor do you have to worry about the costs. If you wrecked the 718 just chuck it away and get another one.
Porsche 718 Boxster S features a new 2.5 litres flat-four turbo engine with 350 horsepower and 420 Newton metres of torque. It propels the little sports car from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 285 km/h.Motoring Nirvana: Porsche 718 Boxster S around Magny-Cours,
