2013 Porsche Boxster
The 2013 Porsche Boxster open-top two-seater receives a new lightweight body and completely revamped chassis. The new Boxster weighs less than the previous model and rides on a longer wheelbase and a wider track. Combined with larger wheels and a new electromechanical power steering system, the new dimensions significantly enhance the mid-engine sports car driving dynamics. The new Porsche Boxster boasts superior performance and is also up to 15 percent more fuel-efficient than previous models on the European cycle.

The new Porsche Boxster also benefits from shorter overhangs and the windscreen that has been shifted forward. The passengers are enclosed by the redesigned, fully electric top, which now dispenses with a convertible top compartment lid. The interior concept offers more space and reflects the new Porsche outline with a raked center console.

The new Porsche Boxster and Boxster S are powered by flat-six engine with direct fuel injection, the efficiency of which is further enhanced by electrical recuperation, thermal management and start/stop function. The base model’s new power unit produces 265 hp from 2.7 liter displacement. Technically, it is now based on the 3.4-liter engine of the Boxster S. This now delivers 315 hp, which is five hp more than before. Both models feature a manual six-speed gearbox as standard and an optional seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). With gear changes without interruption to the power flow, the Porsche Boxster accelerates from 0- 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, the Boxster S in 4.7 seconds.

Porsche also offers the Sport Chrono Package as an optional extra for the Boxster, featuring dynamic transmission mounts for the first time. Also new in the Boxster is Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear axle differential lock. The new Porsche Boxster models will go on-slae in early summer 2012 with the basic price will be $49,500 for the Boxster and $60,900 for the Boxster S, not including a $950 destination charge.
