The 2012 Porsche Boxster Roadster (coupe) comes in "S," "S Black Edition," and "Spyder" variants. The luxury coupe features attractive styling, inside and out, and with a style inspired by the Porsche Spyder 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 for its sporty "S" variant. The standard Boxster features a horizontally opposed 2.9L 6-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque. The Boxster comes equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, but a 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission (called PDK) is optional on the vehicle. The Porsche Boxster S, by comparison, features a more powerful 3.4-liter engine that produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The S variant reaches 0-60 mph in right at five seconds.
The 2012 Porsche Boxster Roadster has a starting MSRP of only $49.5- thousand, putting it in a good place to compete well with other sports cars, as it is generally priced lower. The 2012 Porsche Boxster, like many sports cars, has unimpressive fuel economy ratings at 20mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and 19/27 mpg with the manual transmission. Standard accessories are plentiful and include Bluetooth integration, a CD player, alloy wheels, and sports seats. Upgrades include leather and aluminum trim, navigation (a Porsche Communication Management- PCM system), ventilated seats, a Bose Surround Sound system, 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. A leather package further complements the Boxster coupe's beauty.
