RE-71s are great track and AX tires. They don't last a long time.
Hankook R-S4's are almost as sticky as Re-71s, but last a long time.
Yes, the RE-71's will be slightly faster, but you will be buying at least 2 sets for each set of R-S4's

I use the R-S4's for most of my practice sessions on the track and switch to the Re-71's for the last few sessions and timed runs

As Quad noted, don't go for R comps. Stock Boxsters are camber challenged, especially on the front. You will cord R comps fast unless you make some sus;pension changes and get much more than the .75 or so with a stock suspension
The R-S4's are good street tires as well
