In the Boxster models, each cylinder bank has its own stainless-steel exhaust tract. Downstream of their respective rear silencer, the tracts converge into a connecting tube and a single (Boxster) or twin (Boxster S) tailpipe. The stereo Lambda control circuitry controls and monitors each cylinder bank separately. For each exhaust tract, four corresponding oxygen sensors regulate the composition of the exhaust gas and monitor the performance of the catalytic converters. Having separate tracts means that the exhaust gas can flow more freely. The resulting reduction in pressure loss has a positive impact on power output, torque and the unmistakable engine sound.
Available as an option for the Boxster models is the sports exhaust system including sports tailpipe. It produces an even more resonant Porsche sound.
