Nissan's 370Z Roadster is even more powerful than the 2013 Boxster, but it's not nearly as light or nimble, nor as luxurious; the Infiniti G37 Convertible matches the 370Z's power, and while it closes the gap in terms of luxury, remains heavy and large-feeling in comparison to the Boxster.
The BMW Z4 is also potent, particularly in top-spec trim, and is perhaps even more passenger-friendly than the Porsche, but lacks its dynamic, truly sporty character.
The Audi TT does luxury and style as well as the Boxster does, but its nose-heavy balance and front-biased power delivery likewise bring it up short for the true driving aficionado.
