Fuel consumption* of the Boxster models: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 12.7 (22.2)-10.9 (25.9); Extra urban in l/100 km (mpg) 7.1 (39.8)-6.2 (45.6); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 9.0 (31.4)-7.9 (35.8); CO2 emissions in g/km 211-183.

PASM is available as an option on Boxster and Boxster S and is fitted as standard in the Boxster GTS. It is an electronic damping control system which actively and continuously regulates the damping force for each wheel according to the road conditions and driving style. In addition, the suspension is lowered by 10 mm.

The system is always active in the background, ready to assist you automatically without having to be switched on. However, with the press of a button, you can adapt it to your preferred style of driving. There are two different modes to choose from: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’, where the setup is much firmer. Depending on the mode selected, therefore, PASM can be either sportier or more comfortable than the standard chassis. The results are tangible: increased driving stability, enhanced driving pleasure and improved performance.
