Performance
Its 2.7-litre flat-six engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus produces 195 kW (265 hp) at 6,700 rpm, and maximum torque of 280 Nm between 4,500 and 6,500 rpm. The top speed is 264 km/h. With the precisely geared sixspeed gearbox fitted as standard, the Boxster accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.8 seconds. With the optional 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), it races from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and achieves a top speed of 262 km/h. Together with PDK and the Launch Control feature of the optional Sport Chrono Package, the Boxster can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 5.5 seconds.

Boxer engines
The mid-mounted engine belongs at Porsche and it belongs in the Boxster. The advantages speak for themselves. The centre of gravity is low and in the middle, with the weight uniformly distributed between the front and rear axles. This is reflected in the well balanced handling characteristics and excellent maneuverability, especially when cornering.

Combining the intrinsic values of high performance with comparatively low fuel consumption and emission figures. Made possible by racetrack engineering – for the road.

The engines are equipped with VarioCam Plus and direct fuel injection (DFI) as standard. As well as efficient technologies such as auto start/stop, electrical system recuperation and enhanced thermal management.

What else could we have given the midmounted engine? An even more agile response. One press of the SPORT button on the centre console makes engine performance even more dynamic for driving pleasure at the limits of performance.

Efficiency
Thermal management
Thanks to the selective heat flow control strategy and on-demand, gradual activation of the various cooling circuits, the engine and gearbox warm up to normal operating temperature more rapidly. The consequent reduction in friction also reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. During sporty driving, thermal management also acts to reduce temperatures so that a high level of performance is maintained.

Auto start/stop function
The auto start/stop function, integrated as standard in the Boxster models, switches off the engine when you stop, select neutral and release the clutch pedal. In cars with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), it is simply a case of applying and holding the brake. All audio and communication systems remain switched on.

The engine will restart as soon as you operate the clutch or, in cars with PDK, release the brake. This fuel-saving innovation is designed primarily for use in towns or congested motorway traffic.

Electrical system recuperation
Another efficiency-enhancing function in the Boxster models is electrical system recuperation. The vehicle battery is recharged by the generator predominantly under braking. Thanks to this selective recharging, when you request full driving power the maximum possible output can be directed straight to the road.

Engine management
The electronic engine management system ensures optimum engine performance at all times. It regulates all engine-related functions and assemblies. The results are optimum power output and torque with comparatively low fuel consumption and emissions.

Coasting
Available with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), coasting enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking. The vehicle can then make optimum use of its momentum and coast for longer distances. This lowers fuel consumption noticeably. Without losing any comfort or sports performance.

Manual gearbox
The Boxster models are equipped as standard with a lightweight six-speed manual transmission. Gearshifts are smooth and optimally adapted to the respective engine map. Shift throws are short and the gear lever is easy to operate. For a truly engaging driving experience. The upshift indicator located in the central round instrument helps reduce fuel consumption.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
Available as an option for the Boxster models is 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), featuring both manual and automatic modes. PDK offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power, improved acceleration over the manual transmission, very short response times, reduced fuel consumption and a distinct increase in comfort.

The design of PDK is similar to two conventional gearboxes in one. The odd numbered gears are housed on one assembly and the even numbered gears on another, each having its own clutch. While one gear is engaged, PDK preselects the next gear based on driver input. When the next gear is requested, drive is switched from one clutch to the other in milliseconds, delivering gear changes with no loss of drive.
With the SPORT button selected, the full advantages of PDK are brought into play: a more immediate response to throttle inputs, even shorter shift times and swift, throttle-blip downshifts on overrun and when braking – always accompanied by an emotive engine sound.

When combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package (standard in the Boxster GTS), gearshifts are sportier, shift times shorter. Other gearshift strategies are also available – for uncompromising driving enjoyment.

Sport button
The SPORT button on the centre console is fitted as standard. When selected, ‘Sport’ mode is activated to provide greater response and enhanced driving pleasure. Throttle response becomes even more direct, the rev-limiter is adjusted to a harder setting and engine dynamics are tuned for performance driving. The auto start/stop function is also deactivated.

With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, the shift points are reconfigured to operate at higher engine speeds. Shift times are reduced and gearshifts become firmer and more immediate, while throttle-blip downshifts are accompanied by an emotive engine sound. Coasting mode is deactivated automatically.

Exhaust system
In the Boxster models, each cylinder bank has its own stainless-steel exhaust tract. Integrated catalytic converters and four corresponding Lambda sensors are used to keep emissions low. Downstream of the respective rear silencers, the system converges into a connecting tube and a single (Boxster) or twin (Boxster S and Boxster GTS) tailpipe.

Direct fuel injection (DFI)
The Boxster models are equipped with direct fuel injection (DFI) as standard. Multi-hole injectors deliver fuel straight to the combustion chamber with millisecond precision. DFI also improves the internal cooling of the combustion chamber by having the mixture prepared directly in the cylinder. The higher compression ratio provides more power output at the same time as higher engine efficiency.

VarioCam Plus
VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves. The system first differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum performance. The electronic engine management system then imperceptibly adapts valve operation to the prevailing conditions.
This results in instant acceleration and extremely smooth running with comparatively low fuel consumption.
