2013 Porsche Boxter

2013 Porsche Boxter

The 2013 Porsche Boxter (981) was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show last week.

The new Porsche Boxter weighs less than the previous generation and rides on a longer wheelbase and a wider track. This along with the new electromechanical power steering system is claimed to significantly enhance the cars driving dynamics.

The new Porsche Boxter models are powered by flat-six engines with direct fuel injection. The base Boxter engine delivers 195 kW from a 2.7 liter displacement at 6700 rpm with a maximum torque of 280 Nm and the 3.4-liter engine of the Boxster S delivers 232 kW at 6700 rpm with a maximum torque of 360Nm.

Both models feature a manual six-speed gearbox as standard with the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) available as an option.

With the PDK option, the Boxster sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds whilst the Boxster S in 5 seconds.

The base price for the Boxter in South Africa is R589000 whilst the Boxter S retails for R699000
