The Boxster was inspired by mid-engined Porsche roadsters & racecars from the 1950s, primarily the iconic 550 Spyder and RS60. Unlike those track models, the Boxster was built for the road, it combines the best of both worlds, sharp handling and comfort. The latest iteration of the Boxster has evolved into roomier, more refined roadster.
Two models are available, the 265hp standard 2.7 liter variant, and the higher-output 315hp 3.4 liter "S" variant. Both come with Porsches's PDK dual-clutch transmission..
