The Boxster serves as the Porsche's entry-level vehicle. The Boxster is a mid-engined roadster powered by a flat-six engine. Two variations are offered: Boxster and Boxster S. The Boxsters 2.7L produces 245hp, whereas the 3.4L in the Boxster S produces 295. Both models are available with either a manual transmission or an optional 5-speed Tiptronic automatic. Large tires and standard stability control help keep the Boxster centered. A power-operated top retracts in 12 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. A host of upgrades are available including an optional active suspension system and composite brake discs. The Boxster is great for spirited top-down motoring and is the most cost-effective path to Porsche ownership.
Both engines are fitted with VarioCam Plus variable timing and lift control. The engine in the Boxster S grows in displacement to 3.4L. Output increases to 295 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. Output on the 2.7L increases by 5 hp.
