The flagship model in the Boxster range has also evolved: the Boxster S.
It presents an even more athletic interpretation of the roadster concept. More powerful and more efficient. Its brand new engine is now fitted with direct fuel injection (DFI) as standard. For increased torque and power – with a simultaneous reduction in fuel consumption. The result is 228 kW (310 hp) at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 360 Nm at 4,400 – 5,500 rpm. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.3 seconds.
With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and ‘Launch Control’ from the optional Sport Chrono Package, just 5 seconds. Fuel con- sumption is further reduced by up to 15% depending on the type of gearbox, and CO2 emissions by up to 16%.
As well as the 18-inch Boxster S II wheels in a dynamic design, the Boxster S is fitted with a braking system which is distinguished by its red-painted calipers. The rear brake discs are thicker than those on the Boxster for increased stability under braking.
The front air intake grilles are painted black for a striking contrast. Together with the centrally mounted tailpipe in a new design, they give the car a powerful presence.
In the interior, as well as leather on the steering wheel, gear/PDK selector lever, handbrake and door handle, the Boxster S has leather trim on the storage compartment covers in the door and the rear centre console. The instrument dials are aluminiumcoloured.
These are just the facts. To experience the performance of the Boxster S, we can only offer one piece of advice: you really need to drive it.
