For model year 2010, Porsche continues to offer the new generation of its mid-engine sports cars: the open-top Boxster S.
Originally launched for model year 2009, these sports cars feature new boxer engines developed from the ground up with new technical features, delivering more power and greater fuel efficiency than their predecessors.
Adding the optional Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), Porsche’s new and revolutionary seven-speed double-clutch gearbox, further improves fuel economy and performance in this already capable two-seat sports car.
Perhaps no other models in the Porsche lineup so intensely recall the marque’s legendary 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder as the mid-engine Boxster and Boxster S. These two affordable, open-top, two-seat roadsters give drivers’ confident sure-footed agility and the unequaled exhilaration of top-down high-performance on the world’s most demanding roads.
In 2008 Porsche unveiled the new generation Boxster and Boxster S at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2009 model. These second-generation roadsters stand out clearly at first sight through the new, individually designed front and rear panels with even larger halogen headlights plus integrated direction indicators and new LED rear lights.
Porsche has provided some updates for 2010, including the addition of the three-spoke Sports steering wheel as a standard feature on all Boxster variants. New options include Dark Blue Metallic exterior paint and a heated steering wheel.
The 3.4-liter engine in the Boxster S, benefiting from Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), now delivers 310 horsepower at 7200 rpm and 266 lb-ft at 4750 rpm.
The Boxster S fitted with the standard six-speed manual accelerates to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds, while the same car with PDK and activated Launch Control in the optional Sports Chrono Package covers the distance in just 4.7 seconds. EPA figures are 19 city/26 highway and 20 city/29 highway for the Boxster S with a manual and PDK gearbox, respectively. Top test track speeds for these two Boxster S versions are 170 and 169 mph.
The 2010 Boxster S MSRP is $58,000, plus $950 for destination.
