Without to pull the handbrake, the driver is able to set off on a gradient smoothly and thanks to Porsche’s new Start-Off

Suspension even more and comfortable than before

The driving pleasure offered by models in the Boxster range is a result of the wide track and the set-up suspension improving the driving dynamics to an even standard despite the enhancement of comfort. One of the features contributing to the suspension is the newly developed offering a further improvement of together with greater comfort by reducing tire on the rear wheels.

The and passenger are able to activate ventilation together with the heating, reliably removing on the surface and ensuring a pleasant at the same time.

More on Less Fuel

The Porsche is continuing to build up its lead as the model in the segment of open sports cars. Already a with lots of power and fuel efficiency, the second of Porsche’s mid-engined roadster is now more athletic in its performance and modest in its fuel consumption. The of the new model is the new six-cylinder boxer developed as completely new power from the ground up, displacing 2.9 in the Boxster and 3.4 litres in the Boxster S.

engines belong to the same as the particularly efficient power introduced only recently in the 911 series. The new “basic” engine now 255 bhp (188 kW) at 6400 rpm, up by 10 over the previous model its 2.7 litres. Maximum torque is up by 17 Nm to 290 Nm or 214 delivered consistently between and 6000 rpm.

Featuring Fuel Injection (DFI), the in the Boxster S offers 15 bhp more before, now developing 310 hp (228 kW) at 6400 rpm. Maximum of 360 Nm or 265 lb-ft 20 Newton-metres more before comes between and 5500 rpm from this 3.4-litre.

Given this of power, the balance of output and on both Porsche roadsters so to a dynamic sports car is improving again. With its unladen of just 1335 kg or 2944 lb outstanding for an open sports car in class, the Boxster offers a ratio of 5.2 kg per horsepower.

Weighing kg or 2988 lb unladen, in turn, the S is even more dynamic a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.4 kg. In case the driver benefits maximum performance on minimum Porsche’s new roadsters achieving most outstanding performance and economy in combina tion the new Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the Porsche Gearbox.

Shifting gears quickly without the slightest of power, the Boxster S with PDK to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds, the “basic” Boxster completes the exercise in an equally impressive 5.8 Thanks to the optimum gearshift and gear ratios with the Boxster S offers 16 per cent fuel economy than the model with Tiptronic S, fuel consumption to a mere 9.2 kilometres (EU4), equal to mpg imp. The “basic” model PDK even remains below the limit, average fuel tion of 8.9 litres/100 km or 31.7 mpg imp fuel economy by 11 per cent the former model.

Equipped with the manual now featuring six gears as standard on models, the Boxster S accelerates to 100 in 5.3 seconds, the Boxster completing the sprint in 5.9 seconds. And even this manual gearbox, two-seaters consume even fuel than before, fuel consumption down to 9.2 km (equal to 30.7 mpg imp) on the and 9.6 litres/100 km (equal to 29.4 mpg on the S-model, in both cases to the EU4

Striking Appearance

The new roadsters with their own unique standing out clearly from the Seen from the front, the air intakes larger than on the model clearly underline the appearance of the car as well as the superior of the new models.

Two of the crossbars integrated on side in the outer air intake are finished in body colour on the and come in black on the Boxster S, a new graphic effect at the front to Porsche’s new roadster quite at very first sight. LED lights and foglamps now come in arrangement above the air intakes at the The direction indicators are integrated in the new headlights reminiscent in their of the Carrera GT.

A Lights Package new bi-xenon headlights, dynamic lights, LED daytime driving a headlight cleaning system and headlight range control is as an option on both versions of the The daytime driving lights up in each case of six LEDs next to one another take the of the foglamps whose func tion is now performed without any by the bi-xenon headlights offering side illumination and coverage for clarity and safety.

Seen the side, you will immediately the new series production wheels in unique design. The Boxster on 17-inch wheels in open design, the S-model boasts new 18-inch Boxster S II wheels five sporting and dynamic spokes.

Through their both production wheels an impressive view of the brake and help to vent the brakes. The exterior mirrors are likewise new in design, offering even visibility to the rear and fulfilling all legal requirements. Optimised serves furthermore to keep the cleaner in wet weather. Matching the new section, Porsche’s designers created a brand-new rear design on the Porsche roadster.

The designed rear light with all red lights in LED technology the car particular character from And at the same time the lights very quickly, serving to the car’s active safety. out to a sharp point at the outside, the light clusters are stylishly and integrated into the new rear end of the the LED graphics providing truly light design.

Equally diffuser inserts surrounding the designed tailpipes in the middle off the new rear end at the bottom. The Boxster with a single tailpipe, the S boasts twin tailpipes in a look reminiscent of the 911 GT3.

New from the Ground Up

0-60 mph in 5,8 and 162 mph and 0-60 mph in 5,2 seconds and 170 mph for the Boxtser S

The units in the Boxster and Boxster S are the market as the latest repre of Porsche’s new generation of flat-six Completely new from the ground up, the are lighter than before and fewer individual components, deve loping more and performance and offering even efficiency than their On the Boxster the 2.9-litre replaces the 2.7-litre power unit, the in engine size being by an increase in compression from to 1.5, serving to boost output to 255 bhp (188 kW).

The on the Boxster S comes with the 3.4 litres capacity as before. But from Porsche’s new Direct Injection (DFI) and the compression up from 11.1 to 12.5, the now offers maximum output of no than 310 bhp or 228 hp.

The greater efficiency of the new units results to a large from the consistent enhancement of features and characteristics: Lower reduced internal friction and moving masses help to both six-cylinders more on less fuel. As a result, the new are about six kilos lighter the former power units, a crankcase with integrated bearings replacing the former block with its separate supports. The big advantage, apart lower weight, is the smaller of individual components.

At the same Porsche’s engineers have the thermal and mechanical robustness of the by changing the structure of the crankcase an open- to a closeddeck

configuration. The liners so far standing freely the cylinder gasket are now connected the block through a cast-in encompassing the coolant ducts, the cylinders even greater in their shape and structure.

A advantage is the reduction of oil consumption thanks to the lower level of a reduction of fuel consumption.

New mounts with additional stops and new mounting specifications additionally to enhance driving and improve driving dynamics at the time, with the engine even more firmly the car and thus reducing relative on the body itself.

The Boxster S: the First Boxster Direct Fuel Injection

the 3.4-litre power unit in the new Boxster S, Porsche is hailing the of Direct Fuel Injection in the mid-engined roadster segment. DFI operates on a homogeneous fuel/air spreading out air and fuel smoothly and within the combustion chamber in the of optimum combustion at all times. So de pending on engine load and fuel is injected by DFI at a pressure of up to 120 bar into the combustion chamber.

The benefit is that contrary to intake manifold injection, the mixture is now formed directly in the chamber itself. While in the of indirect fuel injection is partly atomised upfront of the intake valve, the advantage Direct Fuel Injection is fuel is not injected directly the cylinders until the valve is

Positioned between the two intake the injector is aimed directly at the two of air, thus avoiding the film loss inevitably in the conventional process by fuel coming to rest on the walls of the manifold. The air and fuel are therefore even better within the ensuring a clean and

complete process. The thermal energy for evaporating the fuel within the chamber is drawn from the air and cooled down in the process.

reduces the cylinder charge and allows the induction of additional air the open intake valve, improving the cylinder charge.

A benefit is that the lower reduces the knock effect, a higher compression ratio: the former model, the compression on the 3.4-litre is 12.5:1, serving to enhance the thermal efficiency of the for more power on less

Direct Fuel Injection has a effect not only on the engine’s but also on the characteristic features of the S power unit, as the driver feel right away: fuel being injected of a second prior to combustion, the responds even more and spontaneously to even the slightest of the gas pedal.

Exhaust Emissions Even the Strictest Standards

power units already the upcoming emission standards to EU5 in and the ULEV standard in the USA. To this particular quality, the features a secondary air pump to burn fuel in the exhaust when starting the engine and thus warming up the catalytic more quickly to their operating temperature.

The 3.4-litre a comparable effect by means of the stratified charge process the catalysts being heated up thereafter. In the process dual injection increases the temperature of the gas to heat up the catalysts as quickly as The fuel/air mixture is ignited at a late point, again to increase the temperature of the exhaust and reduce the volume of emissions the startup phase.

Ultimately the developed exhaust system two pre-catalysts integrated in the mani near the engine as well as two catalysts helps to clean the gases

as quickly and completely as

VarioCam Plus for Superior on Less Fuel

Like predecessors, the new power units Porsche’s proven VarioCam camshaft adjustment with control timing on the intake and valve lift control. operations are performed by hydraulically cup tappets on the intake side of the masterminded by two cams varying in on the intake camshaft.

The big advantage of Plus is the combination of optimum and torque with enhanced economy, emission management and smoothness. In combination with new Direct Fuel Injection offers an ideal symbiosis engine output and torque and fuel consumption at the same

To further enhance the spontaneous and response of the engine, its efficiency and running characteristics, the engineers in have redesigned the entire train. In their diameter, the tappets for the intake valves are from 33 to 31 millimetres (1.22 the tappets on the exhaust valves 33 to 28 millimetres (1.22 1.10”).

these smaller dimensions and the weight of the fast-moving tappets, inertia is reduced accordingly and speed is increased. As a result, permissible engine speed is now rpm, with both units developing their output at 6400 rpm.

Oil Pump and Separate Cooling

A further step to enhance the of Porsche’s new engines was to optimise the oil and extraction system, with the focusing, first, on a secure oil also under even lateral and longitudinal acceleration. The point was to further reduce and drive losses within the

To reach these objectives, the oil on the new engines follows the principle of dry sump lubrication, made up of an oil with four intake and a pressure stage now fully for the first time.

Engine adjusts the flow of oil to current at all times, thus reducing the required to run the oil pump and, the load acting on the engine. this also helps to fuel consumption. For the first the coolant pump on Porsche’s new engines is fitted outside of the allowing flexible adjustment of dimensions and reducing the cost of and repair when necessary.

As a the maximum volume flow by the new coolant pump in accordance the higher power of the engine and to an adequate engine cooling at all times is up by approximately 20 per cent.

New, Variable Intake

Both power units with a new intake system the resonance and distri butor between the right- and left-hand distributor. One of the new features is the newly centre section between the and left-hand intake distributor. fitted as separate units, the and distributor pipes have now integrated to form one common

Reflecting the shape of the centre now oval in its form, the resonance and pipe flap are semi-oval in geometry. The switching resonance serves to adjust air oscillation in the system to the respective speed of the ensuring high torque at low an even smoother torque as well as high maximum The two-chamber distributor tube its switching flap likewise engine torque at low engine

The intake distributors on the two rows of are tailored in their dimensions to the characteristics of the two power units, coming in different geometry.

new feature is the re-configured resonance in the upper section of the intake This function new on the “basic” serves to dampen acoustically resonance noise at high speeds. Together with the developed exhaust system, the pattern of the engine has therefore re-composed, now offering even brilliance and an even more touch.

Accelerating Faster, Fuel: the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK)

The two new are available as an option for the first with Porsche’s Doppel kupplungsgetriebe or PDK for short, the Double-Clutch with seven gears the former Tiptronic S.

In principle PDK is up of one manual gearbox separated two individual transmission units and a control unit. The “heart” of the is formed by two interacting multiple-plate running in an oil bath and hydraulically on one joint shaft.

One clutch is for the gearbox unit incorporating the gears and the reverse gear, the clutch is for the second gearbox comprising the even gears. a number of pressure valves, the control unit masterminds the clutches and the shift cylinders the desired transmission ratio. The are shifted very fast, the slightest jolt, and with no of power or traction, the clutch on one unit opening up and the other closing at the same time.

In lever position D this process takes place automatically, with maximum and smoothness. Pressing the paddles on the wheel or simply tipping the lever, the driver may however shift gears manually.

In case the process of engaging and the clutch does not require any on the part of the driver. The big advantage is the up to 60 per cent faster than on a and converter automatic transmission, the gears are already in mesh the driver shifts from one to another. A further advantage is the of weight on PDK, which, the addition of two further gears, is 10 kg or 22 lb lighter than the former S transmission.

In with the CDR-30 radio as standard, Porsche offers the Chrono Package as a particular And in combination with optional Communication Management (PCM), the also has the choice of the optional Chrono Package Plus.

As both packages come an analogue stopwatch on the instrument and a sports mode for the engine serving to activate Porsche Management (PSM) as

well as Active Suspension Management where fitted, via the Sports In combination with Porsche Management (PCM), both also come with a display in the instrument cluster and an memory.

A brand-new feature on packages is the additional Sports function on cars fitted the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe. Pressing the additional Plus button, the driver is to choose an uncompromising, highly gearshift program for optimum on the race track. A further offered by this program is Launch Control for optimum from a standstill: To set off like in all the driver has to do is press down the pedal with his left and push the gas pedal all the way down his right foot (kick-down).

This will rev up the engine to rpm. Then, once the takes his foot off the brake the car will set off with maximum both roadsters thus 100 km/h another 0.2 seconds the Boxster S in 5.0, the Boxster in 5.6

New: Six-Speed Manual on Both Models

Both new come as standard with a six-speed gearbox. Based on the in the former models, the new transmission has been modified in its geometric points and power uptake to the new Now the “basic” Boxster also as standard with the six-speed gearbox replacing the former unit.

Porsche offers of the Boxster and Boxster S with a gearbox important help in fuel consumption by means of the point indicator housed in the rev

Depending on the gear in mesh, speed and the position of the gas pedal, the point indicator clearly the driver when to shift up, the flashing on for the driver to shift up to the higher gear in the interest of fuel economy. Clearly, the receives this recommendation if the gear suggested is appropriate for the speed or process of acceleration by the driver in advance.

Limited-Slip as an Option

A limited-slip differential on the wheels is available for the new Boxsters in with both 18- and 19-inch Locking action is 22 per cent power and 27 per cent in overrun, significantly improving both and stability for significantly enhanced on winding roads, particularly on the

A further advantage is the even stable load change And last but certainly not least, the limited-slip differential, through its function, reduces electronic intervention (ABD) by PSM Porsche Management, with the locking reducing the tendency of a wheel to when running on a slippery at one side of the car.

Start-Off also with the Manual

Both with the manual and Porsche’s new PDK, the two-seater now comes as standard with a Assistant offering the driver easier and smoother control

in motoring and preventing the car from forwards or backwards for about two when setting off on a gradient by holding and subsequently releasing the after the driver lets go of the pedal.

The Start-Off Assistant allows the driver to set off smoothly and on an uphill or downhill gradient having to use the handbrake.

New audio and systems

Both the Boxster and the come as standard with the new CD radio boasting an easy-to-read monochromatic display and the ability to MP3 CDs. New PCM Porsche Communication available as an option complete hard disc navigation as the central control unit for all communication and navigation features.
