Porsche Show Off New Boxster at Geneva 2012

New Porsche Boxster at Geneva 2012

Matthias Müller, President and CEO of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, showed the new generation of the mid-engine sports car Boxster at the Geneva International Motor Show, Switzerland.

 

The mid-engine roadster’s comprehensive revamping is also apparent in its looks. Now the wheelbase has increased, the track is wider and the wheels are larger. In the process, Porsche has not just significantly enhanced the driving dynamics, thereby ensuring unadulterated driving fun, but the new Boxsters are up to 15% more fuel-efficient as well. The fuel consumption is significantly less than 8 litres/100km. Thanks to a root and branch styling makeover with shorter body overhangs, significantly forward-shifted windscreen, flatter silhouette and expressive edges, the roadster’s road posture is more muscular and more striking. The interior offers more space and the interior concept reflects the new Porsche outline with the raked centre console.
