The Porsche Boxster receives major revisions for 2014. Transformed from the ground up, the third-generation model sports a new lightweight body. Changes are designed to make the new model lighter, nimbler, and stronger than ever before. The engine and drivetrain have also been refined, with more power and better fuel efficiency. New Porsche design language evolves the shape to be more aggressive and more noticeable.
Numerous improvements promise an even better driver's car than the previous generation model, which won awards for its renowned performance and superb agility.
The Boxster model's 2.9-liter flat-six has been replaced by a 2.7 liter flat-six that delivers 265 horsepower, ten more than the previous model, and delivers improved fuel economy in both city and highway estimates. 32 miles per gallon highway is now possible on the new Boxster.
In the Boxster S, the 3.4-liter engine delivers five more horsepower, now rated at 315 hp, and also improves fuel economy to reach up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
Two transmissions are available on both models. A six-speed manual is standard to help you be one with your Porsche, or the legendary seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) is an option for you to take advantage of cutting edge technology and getting the most performance and fuel efficiency out of your vehicle. These changes mean your Boxster takes 5.4 seconds from zero to 60 mph, while the Boxster S can sprint to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.
The new Porsche Boxster receives a lightweight body with a longer wheelbase and wider track to increase interior room and improve handling performance. A new electromechanical steering system and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear axle differential lock are standard, while a Sport Chrono Package is an optional extra to further improve your Boxster's responsive handling.
