The Boxster models have electromechanical steering. With a variable steering ratio, the steering system responds precisely, directly and more efficiently, as you would expect from a Porsche. The electric motor uses energy only when the steering wheel is actually turned. And the absence of hydraulic fluid eliminates the need for servicing. Power steering Plus, the optional speed-sensitive power steering system, ensures easier manoeuvring and parking, thus providing even greater comfort.
