Ahead of its official debut in March, here is the 2013Porsche Boxster. Porsche note how this new model is one of the most comprehensive updates to a model they have ever done. Almost everything has improved, from fuel economy, to performance and all the way to a reduction in weight.
New and Improved 2013 Porsche Boxster - FeaturesThe wheels are now larger, the wheelbase is longer and it has a wider track. The power steering system is now electromechanical and will enhance the driving dynamics. The windscreen has been moved further forward and the new electric top has been redesigned. The interior has been enlarged, offering more space to the occupants.
Both the 2013 Porsche Boxster and Boxster S models will be powered by a flat-six engine with direct fuel injection. Fuel economy has been improved on these engines, thanks in part to electrical system recuperation, thermal management and Start/Stop function. The base model will produce 265 hp from the 2.7 litre variant. The Boxster S comes with a 3.4 litre engine which delivers 315 hp. Both models will come with a 6-speed gear box with the 7-speed PDK available as option.
The new 2013 Porsche Boxster is set to arrive overseas around the middle of 2012. Look for more information and details on a local release closer to the time.
