The technical highlight of the new Boxster generation is the considerably lower weight thanks to the lightweight design body and the completely revamped chassis. The mid-engine roadster's comprehensive revamping is also apparent in its looks: the wheelbase has increased, the track is wider and the wheels are larger.
In the process, Porsche has not just enhanced the driving dynamics, but the new Boxsters are 15 per cent more fuel-efficient as well: depending on model, their fuel consumption is significantly less than eight litres per 100 kilometres.
Thanks to a root and branch styling makeover with shorter body overhangs, significantly forward-shifted windscreen, flatter silhouette and expressive edges, the roadster's road posture is more muscular and more striking. The interior offers more space and the interior concept reflects the new Porsche outline with the raked centre console.Porsche introduces Boxster Spyder
