Lighter and more fuel-efficient, faster and more agile – with an all-new lightweight design body and completely revamped chassis, the latest generation of the Boxster is setting new top scores for Porsche Intelligent Performance. Considerably lower weight, a longer wheelbase, a wider track and larger wheels significantly enhance the mid-engine sports car’s driving dynamics yet further, already far and away the best in its class, supported by the new electro-mechanical power steering.
As an additional boost to driving dynamics, 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 mechanical rear axle differential lock.
The new Boxsters boast superior performance as well as being up to 15 percent more
fuel-efficient. They boast ultra-modern, direct fuel injection, six-cylinder engines and all
variants get by with less than nine litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, the Boxster with PDK (Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe or dual clutch gearbox) even managing with less than eight litres.
