A roadster is not simply a car. The Boxster is not simply a roadster. It’s a sports car that brings you closer to the road, closer to real life and connects you with your own free spirit. The precise, lightweight chassis ensures an impressively dynamic drive, with practically no body roll or pitch. Or, in short, a safer and more comfortable drive.
Power is transmitted to the road by 18-inch Boxster wheels. Their distinctive five-spoke design affords an unobstructed glimpse of the braking system’s black four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers. And you can keep an eye on the pressure in all four tyres thanks to tire pressure monitoring (TPM). The large air inlets illustrate character. The sound produced by the central tailpipe in brushed stainless steel is unmistakably Porsche.
High-quality, stylish materials are used in the interior. The steering wheel rim, gear lever/selector and door pull inlays are finished in leather. The refined tone is enhanced by silver-coloured details, such as those found on the dashboard trim strip, the side and centre air vent surrounds and the centre console.
Lean, muscular and athletic, the car has inherited motorsport genes. They are characteristic of the Porsche family and vital to the irresistible appeal of the sports car. They are traits that make the Boxster the sports star among roadsters. Dynamic performance, whether the hood is open or closed, has become synonymous with driving pleasure.

Nevertheless, the dynamic performance of the Boxster S can be further enhanced. With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the Boxster S reaches 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds and boasts a top speed of 277 km/h. The Launch Control feature of the optional Sport Chrono Package reduces the time to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h to just 4.8 seconds.
