The second-generation Boxster range comes in a truly dynamic outfit in terms of both looks and technical features. In their design, the upgraded models follow Porsche’s usual process of steady and consistent evolution. Without being required or seeing any need to radically change the design and looks of the car, Porsche’s designers have further refined the already very well-balanced and harmonious design language of the existing model.
Maximum output of the 3.2-litre six-cylinder in the Boxster S is 206 kW (280 bhp), ensuring acceleration to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 268 km/h or 166 mph. To capitalise on this extra power, the Boxster S comes with a new six-speed manual gear-box, new multiple synchromesh and optimised gear travel ensuring not only a very precise, but also very fast gearshift (approximately 15 per cent faster than before).
