Rent a Porsche Convertible for the Day
Tear through Cape Town in the speedy, stylish Boxster S roadster
Cape Town is world famous for epic scenery, and threaded amongst its glorious mountain ranges are some of the best driving roads in the world. What better way to tackle this tarmac than in your very own Porsche Boxster S (available for hire in Cape Town for the day, week or as long as you like).
Think of it this way. There are driving moments when the car feels like an extension of your body. Human and machine blend into one devastatingly quick hybrid of emotion and metal.
There are few vehicles on earth with which you can connect in this way, but the Porsche Boxster S’s poise and balance make the fusion seamless. Oh, and then the fact that it’s topless also seems to help.
So, if you’re looking to make your visit to Cape Town that much more memorable, hiring this convertible sports car is certainly a very good way of doing so.
More about the Porsche Boxster S
The Boxster is a special sports car. The two-seater roadster’s 3.4 litre, flat-six engine is a product of the very best German engineering. It provides that wonderful feeling of acceleration when you’re careening around Cape Town’s country roads, wind in your hair and a smiling passenger at your side.
Plus, the convertible is rear engined, a rarity in this segment of the car world and a fact that translates into a sublime motoring experience. Front/rear balance is just shy of perfect, with a little more mass at the rear for extra grip. As there is just the right amount of weight over the front wheels, the car feels light, responsive and chuckable. If you’re not used to driving high-end sports cars, this will be the experience of a life time, and if you’re used to this level of motoring, renting the Porsche Boxster S will never disappoint.
Not to mention, if you’re going to take advantage of the sun-drenched Cape coastline and if you’re planning on arriving at one of the many beach bars and cafés, whether it’s Shimmy or Caprice, a ride like this is bound to make the right sort of statement.
Speaking of which, when you’re chatting away to some of the lovely locals, who could possibly turn down a spin in a car like the Porsche Boxster?
