PORSCHE’S third generation Boxster roadster arrived mid 2012, lighter, faster and more fuel efficient than ever before.

The muscular-looking Boxster was designed to appeal to a younger, broader audience and was built using a combination of steel and aluminium, with 46 per cent of the shell made up of aluminium to shave between 25 and 35kg off the weight of the vehicle.

The Boxster was powered by a choice of two mid-mounted six cylinder boxer engines – a 2.7-litre version for the Boxster and a 3.4-litre for the Boxster S.

Power was slightly up for both engines, with the smaller engine pumping out 195kW and the 3.4 capable of 232kW, up by 4kW over the previous model.

Sprinting to 100km/h was 5.5 seconds in the Boxster and 4.8 seconds in the top-spec Boxster S.
