The Porsche Boxter might not have made world premiere in Detroit but its official photos were dropped in the internet just when the final post were getting ready. Since its birth in 1996, it is the third generation of Boxter. The latest version introduces a light weight body, flat six engines with injecting petrol, a revised framework and in true Porsche fashion evolutionary style. The new model has a short front and back overhangs associated with a forward shifting windscreen and a silhouette with front end borrowing various designs from the 918 Spyder Concept which is also moving forward to enter production. The back has a similar set of tail lamps but with overhanging crease in the centre.

While in the interior, the most important change that is seen is the centre console which boasts a huge screen and a prominent lower section which features controls similar to that found in the Panamera and the latest 911. The wheelbase ad tracks promises to improve room for passengers while in Porsche an automatic hood is added which give out a compartment lid for the convertible top. However, the technical details are yet to be disclosed fully but it is known that the new model’s all aluminium body is lighter than the one it replaces. The base Boxter has a 2.7 L flat six instead of the 2.9 liter unit. It produces 10HP more and completes 0 to 100km/hr in 5.7 seconds. While the sportier Boxter S has the same 3.4 liter engine which is revised to give an output of 5HP more for 0 to 100km/hr in 5 seconds. Each of the two models are fitted as standard with six speed manual gearbox and a seven speed dual clutch PDK transmission as an option.

Both these models are faster and are also more efficient in fuel economy giving combined fuel economy of 8.0lt/100km and 7.7lt/100km in the European driving cycle.
