2013 Porsche Boxster – Major automakers can roll out 140 models creating their world debuts at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show, the top of the show said on Tuesday. The 2012 Geneva Motor Show is well underway albeit it’s still early morning within the States, and one in every of the highlights therefore far – aside from the odd one-off Lamborghini – is the official auto show unveiling of the 2013 Porsche Boxster. The new 2013 Porsche Boxster weighs but the previous generation and rides on an extended wheelbase and a wider track. These new dimensions are not to mention larger wheels and a brand new electromechanical power steering system to considerably enhance the mid-engine sports car’s driving dynamics.
The 2013 Porsche Boxster boasts superior performance and is additionally up to 15% additional fuel-efficient than previous models on the ecu cycle. We will once more make sure rumors of labor on a four-cylinder 2013 Porsche Boxster, and there are 2 prospects for such an engine, which might use a shortened six-cylinder block. The bottom model’s new power unit delivers 265 hp from a 2.7 liter displacement – 10 hp quite its larger displacement predecessor. Porsche may supply an entry-level, naturally aspirated four creating around 240 hp, or go fully the opposite means and make an extra-powerful, turbocharged version with well over 350 hp. Power can still come back from Porsche’s horizontally opposed engines.
The six-cylinders can add engine stop-start technology, and power can slightly increase to around 270 hp for the 2013 Porsche Boxster and 320 hp for the Boxster S seen here. (The current models create 255 and 310, respectively.) A transaxle version of the 991′s seven-speed manual can be offered, however retaining the wonderful six-speed would be the less complicated. The ZF-sourced seven-speed dual-clutch transmission – a.k.a. PDK – will stay optional.
With a way cleaner, additional powerful look than its predecessor, the 2013 Porsche Boxster is currently a worthy very little brother – and for a few, presumably evens an alternative – to the new 991 Porsche 911. The 2013 Porsche Boxster models are expected in U.S. showrooms in early summer 2012. The essential list value I will be $49,500 for the 2013 Porsche Boxster and $60,900 for the Boxster S, not together with a $950 destination charge.
