The Fiat 124 is the Miata’s counterpart, and is based directly on the MX-5. What makes it an alternative? Fiat took care to influence the Miata’s essence, with the renovated 124 being a comfier, more refined and held back Miata. This makes the 124 a better car to sit in, but the compromise made, was the intrinsic peppy nature of the Miata, but again, that’s what makes the 124 an alternative.Porsche engineering paired with a soft-top; the dream convertible is born. Just like its non-convertible sibling the 718 Cayman, the Boxster stands to the be at the zenith of refinement. Unparalleled handling and performance paired with an audacious yet classy design language leaves little to no room for complaint for the 718 and its ubiquitously accepted greatness. All of that with wind blowing in your hair.
