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 while the Boxster GTS has Bi-Xenon headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). On all Boxster models, LED daytime running lights and position lights are integrated in the air inlets. All Boxster models are also equipped with automatic headlight activation as standard. This automatically switches between daytime running lights and dipped beam based on ambient lighting conditions.
LEDs provide powerful illumination, respond rapidly to driver input and are more energy efficient with a longer service life. They are also used in the taillights, ensuring optimum safety and creating a look that is unmistakable, day and night.
Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is standard equipment in the Boxster GTS and available as an option for the other Boxster models. Comprising Bi-Xenon main headlights with halogen main beam headlights, a headlight cleaning system and automatic dynamic range control, it 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 the 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.
The optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) has an additional feature. Dynamic main beam control identifies the car in front as well as oncoming traffic and adapts the range of the light cone automatically to the particular situation, switching smoothly between dipped and main beam.
