Porsche officially presented the new Boxster (S) at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The new sports car ‒ internally designated 981 ‒ is not only lighter and more efficient, it’s also bigger and has more power than before. The design of the new Boxster is just like the 911 more an evolution than a revolution.
The new 2013 Porsche Boxster comes with a choice of 2.7 liter with an output of 265hp and a more powerful 3.4 liter with 315hp flat six engines. The Boxster accelerates from 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds, while the Boxster S takes 4.7 seconds.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but the optional seven-speed PDK gearbox will boost both the performance as well as the fuel economy. Compared to the previous generation Boxster, the new model saves up to 15 percent in fuel.

Porsche 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 Porsche Boxster will hit the showrooms in Germany this April. The price tag for the Boxster is € 48,291 for the base model, whereas the more powerful Boxster S is being offered for € 59,120.
