2009 Porsche Boxster

Porsche Boxster Gets New Boxer Engine, Modest Upgrades

The brand new 2009 Boxster, unveiled at the LA Auto is one of the most exciting roadsters on the to be sure. While Porsche the 2009 Boxster the second from the exterior the new Boxster and S are not that dissimilar to previous The front and rear ends are with wider air inlets in the and all new lighting at all four corners bring the Boxster more in with Porsche 911 models.

to the untrained eye Porsche 911 styling the last 15 years is nearly it seems Porsche is going the design changes direction the new 2009 Boxster and Cayman In the Boxster’s case, this may at a price, as Boxster buyers are as to buy the mid-engine convertible Porsche to good on the boulevard as they are to it through the corners. But Porsche will be happy to know inside, the Boxster is all new, and a big specs improvement over models.

2009 Porsche Performance Specs – New Boxer Engine, Transmission

New Boxster engine choices are the two basic powerplants as those in the new Porsche Cayman, a 2.9 liter engine for the Boxster and a 3.4 liter for the powerful Boxster S. Both choices get a bump in horsepower previous models, though is only part of the story. For all Porsche sports car models received a very refined of direct injection to their 6 engines, and Porsche promises not real-world Boxster performance but an increase in fuel economy as

In the base model Boxster miles per gallon is promised to be a 31.0 mpg, good for any Porsche driving pedigree Part of this gas saving car comes by way of the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) a race-derived sequential manual to those employed by Audi and With the optional PDK with control, the 2009 Porsche S actually accelerates to 62 mph 0.2 seconds than any measured testing for the 6 manual, and its seventh gear help with fuel as well.

The 2009 Porsche Boxster and S go on sale in early 2009, a base price of $57,650 for the 6 Boxster S.

Next generation Boxster unveiled at Los Angeles Show

Official Porsche Release

In 1948, the 356 was the first car to bear the Porsche name, and in that year the lightweight roadster achieved its first victory. In 1953, the Porsche 550 was launched. This agile, race car was powered by a high ‘boxer’ engine which it to countless international victories.

60 years of automotive evolution so has changed. Yet every Porsche is built on these first Sports performance, lightweight agility and pure driving

The technology Porsche use may have but the company’s ability to produce a mid-engined sports car unlike any on the road remains.

This Porsche is presenting the second of the mid-engined Boxster roadster at the Los Motor Show (November 21 The highlight of the new generation is the new flat-six engines, developed with new features from the ground up, not only more power, but significantly greater fuel

A further improvement of both economy and performance is guaranteed by the Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the new double-clutch now available as an option on both the and Boxster S.

Newly-developed ‘boxer’ deliver more power on fuel

Displacing 2.9-litres, the of the Boxster develops 255 bhp (188 kW) in the an increase of 10 horsepower over the 2.7-litre model.

The 3.4-litre unit in the Boxster S now features Fuel Injection, and delivers 310 bhp kW), up by 15 bhp.

An impressive ratio imbues the two Boxster with optimum driving For example, with the new six speed transmission fitted as standard, the accelerates from 0-62 mph km/h) in 5.9 seconds. And the Boxster S, fitted with PDK transmission and Control (featured in the optional Chrono Package Plus), from 0-62mph (100km/h) in 5.0

When combined with the new 2.9-litre engine fitted to the clearly breaks through the fuel consumption boundary. the figure of 31.0mpg (9.1 is approximately 10 per cent better the previous model with the S automatic transmission. Increasing economy by an even more 15 per cent to 30.1mpg (9.4 the 3.4-litre Boxster S with PDK an even greater saving its predecessor with Tiptronic S.

In with the improvement in fuel so emissions of the engines have also. Depending on model, have been reduced by up to 16 per The Boxster with the standard manual gearbox emits CO2, and 214g/km CO2 when with PDK.

The Boxster S emits 223 g/km CO2, and 221 CO2 with PDK.

Significantly, developments move every model whether manual or PDK Band F for Vehicle Excise and company car taxation purposes.

Fuel Injection standard on S engine

The driver benefits a further advantage of direct every time they the throttle pedal: with being injected fractions of a prior to combustion, the engines more directly and spontaneously to the slightest movement of the driver’s foot. This is not only the when accelerating, but also lifting off the throttle, for engine drops more quickly and since there is no residual left in the intake manifold might otherwise prolong the process.

Depending on engine and speed, fuel is injected the combustion chamber at a pressure of 120 The big advantage is that unlike intake manifold injection, fuel injection serves to the fuel/air mixture directly in the chamber. This better the air and fuel in the cylinder, establishing an prerequisite for clean and complete

This ensures the ‘homogeneous’ of the power unit with a balance of the fuel/air mixture in the chamber at all times and under all conditions. Such smooth guarantees optimum combustion and low emissions, across a range of qualities.

Design emphasises

The seamless blend of function and has always been the Porsche The result is a design consistency is recognisable from every A design which is both and refined, and whose lines its sports performance.

The evolutionary of the next generation Boxster these principles. The latest are clearly distinguishable from through their newly-designed and tail. The new halogen headlights their integrated direction are reminiscent of the lights on the Carrera GT, at the rear, new LED lights taper to the and are integrated elegantly in to the restyled

The rod-shaped side lights in LED conductor technology add distinction to the looks, which are further through their horizontal in the outer air intakes. Yet a further is provided by the rectangular fog lamps as standard.

For the first time, the is available with a Lights featuring bi-xenon headlights, cornering lights and LED day-time lights. Replacing the fog lamps, light units are made up of LEDs positioned next to one

PDK: shifting gears quickly, reducing fuel

The new Boxster models are available the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) carried directly from motor and replacing the former Tiptronic S converter automatic transmission. equipped with PDK, the accelerates from 0-62mph km/h) 0.1 seconds faster with the manual six-speed

Acceleration is particularly fast and with the optional Sports Package Plus featuring Control; this offers acceleration from a standing and also a Race Track Strategy for the fastest conceivable change as an exclusive highlight on the PDK

Benefiting from Launch the respective models accelerate a standstill to 62 mph (100km/h) a further 0.2 faster.

Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe in detail

The next generation and Boxster S are available for the first with the new Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe literally Porsche double-clutch Offering no less than forward gears, the new gearbox the driving comfort of a torque automatic transmission with the manual gearshift functionality of a racing gearbox.

PDK also an entirely automatic gearshift and replaces the Porsche Tiptronic S transmission previously offered. its optimised and adaptive gearshift PDK further improves the acceleration of the models and reduces fuel to an even lower level.

In the PDK consists of a conventional manual and a hydraulic control system into two separate transmission Two wet clutches in radial arrangement, hydraulically, and using oil for both and lubrication, form the heart of the One clutch is for the first transmission with the uneven gear (1,3,5,7) and reverse, and the other is for the second transmission unit the even gears (2,4,6).

Via a of pressure valves, the hydraulic unit masterminds both the wet and the shift cylinders activating the ratio required.

The gearshift by the driver comes not from the actually changing, but from the of positive clutch engagement. In case, the clutch on one transmission or disengages while the clutch on the transmission closes or engages in a process. The big advantage is an even gearshift than with a manual gearbox or torque automatic transmission.

The gears are ‘in mesh’ when and the power of the engine need not be in the process.

PDK also reduces to a transmission power loss of the high standard of mechanical in the double-clutch, and this manifests in fuel economy improvements of 13 per cent compared with a Tiptronic S transmission. PDK also an advantage in terms of weight two additional gears, it weighs less than Tiptronic S.

To use the various functions of the double-clutch the driver can either shift by means of sliding toggles on the of the new steering wheel, or via the new gear lever. The driver can press to shift the gears up, and press from behind to shift Alternatively, pushing the gear lever forwards shifts up a and pulling it back shifts

The option of PDK costs £1,961.

PDK gearshift principle was first by Porsche for motor sport 25 ago. Porsche works benefiting from this were able to accelerate than their competitors and both hands on the steering while changing gears, avoiding even the slightest while shifting.

The seven-speed PDK gears up to 60 per cent faster a conventional automatic transmission, and gives the new Boxster models better performance. And those in of optimum driving dynamics the option to combine PDK with Chrono Package Plus, now Launch Control.

Dynamic and supreme brakes a new option of differential

The suspension with its new gives the next generation models a combination of even driving dynamics and enhanced all in one. Modification of the valve map on the steering gear serves to reduce steering forces, the Boxster more agile and steering behaviour.

The wheels in new designs and are half an inch on the Boxster 2.9-litre model in the past in order to accommodate the brake system of the S-models, are now fitted on the front axle. The and Boxster S feature the latest Porsche Stability Management now offering two new functions: Brake and the Brake Assistant.

Whenever the lifts off the throttle pedal quickly which is typical prior to an emergency braking the PSM hydraulic control unit up an appropriate level of pressure in the before the driver even the pedal down, which has the of moving the brake pads towards the discs for immediate This significantly improves response and shortens stopping accordingly.

When recognising that the is braking in an emergency due to very operation of the brake pedal and a brake force, the PSM hydraulic unit actively delivers the pressure required for maximum power.

In conjunction with 18- and wheels, the new models in the Boxster are also available with a differential on the rear axle. action is 22 per cent under and 27 per cent in overrun. The result is a improvement of both traction and providing a substantially higher of performance on winding roads, on the race track. Yet a further is the more stable load behaviour.

At the same time, the limited-slip differential, through its function, interacts perfectly the electronic ABD Automatic Brake for optimum traction control, the action delaying the tendency of one to spin on a road surface only on one side.

New audio and systems

The next generation features as standard the new CDR-30 CD The new Porsche Communication Management 3.0 complete with hard navigation serves is available as an and when specified adopts the as the central control unit for all communication and navigation features.

PCM 3.0 is now versatile, efficient and easier to use before, standing out in particular its touch-screen control which the driver to select specific simply by pressing the appropriate key on the 6.5-inch monitor. PCM 3.0 is available highly convenient voice and, in conjunction with the universal audio interface, can now be also to control external sources such as an iPod®. USB or Bluetooth.

Enthusiasts of all-weather, motoring will also the option of seat ventilation with seat heating.
