Lights will always be an essential safety feature, but we go one step further by using them as part of an extraordinary styling concept.
Clear glass halogen headlights are fitted as standard on the Boxster. The Boxster S is equipped as standard with Bi-Xenon headlights. On both models, LED daytime running lights and position lights are housed in a separate auxiliary light unit above the outer air intakes. LEDs provide powerful illumination, respond extremely rapidly to driver input, offer a longer service life and have an unmistakable appearance.
LED technology opens up entirely new possibilities for designers. Not only are LEDs capable of fulfilling all the functions of the imposing taillights and third brake light, they are integral to safety and create a look that is unmistakable, day and night.
Why should independence be enjoyed only at night? The optional Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), which comprises Bi-Xenon headlights with halogen main-beam headlights, a head- light cleaning system and automatic dynamic range control, provides uniform illumination of the road whether dipped or main beam is selected.
The dynamic cornering light function swivels the main headlights towards the inside of a bend based on steering angle and road speed. In addition, PDLS adapts light distribution to suit your current driving speed. The adverse weather function is activated when the rear fog light is switched on. The result is increased safety – not least in corners and not only at night.
In the Boxster models, automatic headlight activation is available as standard. The system automatically switches between daytime running lights and dipped beam based on ambient lighting conditions.
