At Porsche, the mid-mounted boxer engine is more than a tradition, it is a legend.
One of the most renowned examples of its use was in the 550 Spyder. In conjunction with an intelligent lightweight construction, this arrangement delivered outstanding agility and cornering dynamics and proved to be...Learn more
The Boxster models feature a new version of thermal management to reduce friction losses that arise during the warm-up phase.
Thanks to the selective control strategy and on-demand, gradual activation of the various cooling circuits, the engine and gearbox warm up to normal...Learn more
The coasting function available with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, allowing it to...Learn more
Both Boxster models are equipped as standard with a lightweight six-speed manual gearbox. Gearshifts are smooth and optimally adapted to the respective engine map. Shift throws are short and sporty and the gear lever is easy to operate, enabling a rapid gearshift action and providing a truly...Learn more
Available as an option for the Boxster models is 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), featuring both manual and automatic modes. PDK offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power, improved acceleration over the manual gearbox, very short response times, reduced fuel...Learn more
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...Learn more
The resonance effect, where the air mass inside the intake manifold is caused to oscillate, is used to optimize the induction process at all engine speeds. The engine in the Boxster S is additionally equipped with a switchable resonance valve.
The results are high torque, a flatter torque curve and...Learn more
Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) is featured as standard in both Boxster models. Multi-hole injectors deliver fuel directly into the combustion chamber with millisecond precision. The injection pattern has been optimized for torque, power output, fuel consumption and emissions.
With direct injection,...Learn more
VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves.
The system first differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum performance. The electronic engine management...Learn more
Integrated dry-sump lubrication ensures a reliable supply of oil even when a sporty driving style is adopted and the vehicle is experiencing powerful lateral acceleration. It also has additional cooling functions.
The oil tank is located in the engine, thereby eliminating the need for an external...Learn more
