Porsche Boxster S

The Boxster S is the perfect combination between comfort, high level of handling and performance. It is powered by a 3.4-liter engine that is able to produce 250 horsepower. The power is being sent to the wheels through a manual 6-speed transmission and features larger cross-drilled brakes from the 911 Carrera. The model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 5.9 seconds. The larger wheels and tires and sport chassis improve the handling and the distinctive titanium-color exterior trim makes the difference between the Boxster S and the standard Boxster. The interior noise was reduced because of the new cloth headliner and safety bars are covered in soft material. Both trunks have improved carpeting and also got new light emitting diode orientation interior lights that provide gentle illumination. Also, the model features the Porsche Stability Management system and a subwoofer speaker system. The package includes a lot of other options.

The Boxter S offers even higher levels of performance, handling, and comfort. Powered by a 3.4-liter, 250-horsepower engine, the Boxster S adopts the 6-speed manual transmission and larger cross-drilled brakes from the 911 Carrera. The Boxster S can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds. Larger wheels and tires and sport chassis tuning enhance the already-precise handling, and distinctive titanium-color exterior trim sets the Boxster S apart form the standard Boxster.

New for 2001: The Boxster roof features a new cloth headliner (like the Boxster S) that reduces interior noise. The integrated safety bars are now covered in soft-touch material, and a new three-spoke steering wheel with a color Porsche crest has been added. Both models get new light emitting diode (LED) orientation interior lights that provide gentle illumination for cockpit, console, ignition lock, and door latches. The front and rear trunks feature improved carpeting. New options for both include the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system and a subwoofer speaker system, and some popular options have been grouped into packages.
