One of the best-sold sport cars in the world is Porsche Boxter. Its production was launched in the year 1997 and since than three generations of the vehicle have impressed either experts or ordinary car-worshippers the world over. Though sometimes other rivals outperformed the car, Porsche Company tried hard to revive interest to this vehicle. So the trends remained the same, but some innovations in interior and convenience of the car became inevitable steps to beat the rivals.
In the beginning of 2012 Porsche launched the production of the third generation of Boxter. A redesigned version acquired a renewed exterior and a more extended length. But the power plant remained as it is. A 2.7-liter flat-6 engine is very good at cornering. Another type of the vehicle, Boxter S, has acquired a 3.4-liter flat-6, able to deliver 315 horsepower. Both the engines were coupled to six-speed manual transmission. But apart from the standard gearbox there is an optional seven-speed automated manual transmission, which adds extra-power jumps on the highway.
The exterior of this generation of cars is revised. That is why many features were added to make the car faster. The rear part of the car is equipped with an anti-wing, which switches off after the limit of 120 km/h is reached. This equipment increases durability of the car in a high-speed mode. There is also a tented top shield which is modified by a button-push.
The model, produced after the year 2012 has become more spacious and comfortable inside. The interior is equipped with a new central console and instrument panel. It is very functional and reflexive. The standard specification is much extended and includes the most up-to date entertainment gadgets. The number of optional elements of the equipment is rather striking. Heated windows can be acquired for additional price. This makes the price very spicy, which is not very good, taking into account the level of rivalry in sport-car’s segment of the market.
The car has become much better than it used to be. But the price for it remains too high. Still the performance and piloting this car brings joy. The functionality of Porsche Boxter has been improved with some new innovative features of the exterior.
