Porsche reveals 2013 Boxster

Hot on the heels of the recently revealed 911 Cabriolet, Porsche has unveiled its next generation of the Boxster model.

Using a completely new aluminium body as well as a revamped chassis, wider track and longer wheelbase, the new Boxster really has evolved noticeably. The daytime running lights and the rear bumper clearly take styling cues from the 911, and we like how the rear lights carry the line of the spoiler, but it’s the flanks of the Boxster that have changed the most. Its stretched and sleek shoulder line, coupled with those larger intakes, provide a dramatic and dynamic appearance reminiscent of the iconic Carrera GT.

Due to be launched this April, the Boxster will be available with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or the seven-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) as an option. The base model Boxster uses a 2.7 L flat six which develops 195 kW (265 hp) – 10 hp up on the 987 version, enough for a 5.7 second 0-100 km/h time – with the PDK. Moving up the scale, the Boxster S is powered by a 232 kW (315 hp) 3.4 L engine, allowing a 5.0 s sprint to 100 km/h.

The basic list price in Germany will be € 48,291 for the Boxster and € 59,120 for the Boxster S (inc. VAT).
