Engineered body design Boxster S

Porsche Boxster S - Engineered body design

Engineered body design

The bodyshell of the Boxster models is based on an intelligent lightweight body in aluminium and steel composite. The use of dissimilar but precisely combined components makes it possible to utilise specific material properties exactly where they are needed. Not only does this provide a high degree of safety for the driver, it offers a considerable weight saving compared with the bodyshell of the previous model. This is why the doors, the luggage compartment lid and the rear hatch are made from lightweight aluminium.

The crumple zones in the front and rear aprons feature integral light-alloy bumpers, while impact absorbers offer additional safety. For the protection of occupants, energy-absorbing padding is used selectively in important areas within the passenger cell.
