The 2012 Porsche Boxster S Roadster (coupe) also comes in standard, "S Black Edition," and "Spyder" variants. The luxury coupe features attractive styling, inside and out, and with a style inspired by both a Spyder-like look and the Porsche Carrera GT, this coupe is one of the most attractive we've ever seen. The Porsche Boxster, after review, has an excellent amount of power-especially in its sporty "S" variant. The Porsche Boxster S features a powerful mid-engine that produces 315 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The S variant reaches 0-60 mph in less than five seconds and has an amazing top speed of 173 mph. It features a six-speed manual transmission with self-adjusting clutch and dual-mass flywheel.
The 2012 Porsche Boxster Roadster has a starting MSRP around only $70- thousand, putting it in a good place to compete well with other sports cars, as it is generally priced lower. On the downside, the Boxster S, like many sports cars, has unimpressive fuel economy rating, somewhere around 20 mpg combined after review (though Porsche's website will tell you the numbers are still to be determined). Standard accessories are plentiful and include Bluetooth integration, a CD player, air conditioning, a Universal audio interface, alloy wheels, and sports seats. Upgrades include leather and aluminum trim, three steering wheel choices, navigation (a Porsche Communication Management- PCM system), ventilated seats, a Bose Surround Sound system, ParkAssist, etc. The Boxster models feature a new version of thermal management, including a cross-flow cooling system, to reduce friction losses that occur during the vehicle's warm-up phase. The electronic roof stows cmopactly and offers excellent aerodynamic performance. A leather package further complements the Boxster coupe's beauty, while the optional light design package disperses LED lighting throughout the cabin. A wind deflector is also available for those times were the top is off.
