Since the Boxster hit showrooms way back in 1997, it has always had its own little group of enthusiasts. This can be said about many cars, as the Miata, Z3, Z4, and even the Sky all have their own tight-knit little group. The unfortunate thing is that tight-knit group rarely ever expands.
With the redesigned 2013 Porsche Boxster, it looks to expand on that group by offering up a much more mature and refined look, as opposed to its little-brother-wishing-he-were-the-big-brother look that it has had since its inception. Yeah, the Boxster still looks like a slightly less sexy version of the 911, but this time it carries its own instead of the 911’s coattail.
As Bryan outlined for us after its release, this “Baby 911” packs a mean wallop, with the Boxster S model pushing 315 horsepower from its 3.4-liter flat-6 engine. Power is all in what you do with it though, and the 2013 Boxster does plenty with what it has. Porsche put this on display in the 2013 Boxster’s newest promotional video.
This video not only gives you a great look at all of the nooks and crannies of the new Boxster, but it also lets you get a good listen to the S model’s 3.4-liter working hard. We are really starting to think that the 911’s little brother is beginning to become his own man. Of course, when you beat the C6 Corvette, Viper SRT-10, and Mercedes C63 AMG at the Nürburgring, you have little else to prove to show your worth in the sports car arena. Sure, those cars would likely smoke the 2013 Boxster S in a quarter-mile straight, but the world is full of curves, baby!
Kick back and enjoy the above video, then try not to immediately run down to Porsche and reserve one. Luckily, there is no Porsche dealer where I am…
