New Porsche Boxster Released

The spirit of the pure-bred roadster is very much alive and kicking. More independent than ever before, it is even more powerful, visceral and intense.

Thats what Porsche are saying of their new Boxster roadster.
In the Boxster, the 2.7-litre horizontally opposed six cylinder engine delivers 265 hp ; in the Boxster S, the 3.4-litre equivalent generates 315 hp. Both mid-mounted engines feature direct fuel injection and VarioCam Plus for a significant increase in both power output and efficiency. The sport button on the centre console is fitted as standard and opens up even more agile responses. Power is transmitted to the wheels by a lightweight six-speed manual gearbox or the optional 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).

The electric hood of the new Boxster opens and closes in around nine seconds and is operable up to a speed of approx. 30 mph.

The intelligent lightweight construction, which uses aluminium for substantial parts of the bodyshell, doors and luggage compartment lids, helps to achieve an excellent power-to-weight ratio.

In summary, the new Boxster draws inspiration from a long history and, yet, it also incorporates the sum of Porsche’s ideas of how the future should be. In doing so, it reflects a completely new interpretation of the roadster concept – with a clear focus on looking forward.

Here at Chaplane we have invested heavily with new equipment specifically for the new generation of Porsche cars. With this in mind you will know your Porsche is in safe hands.
