The 2013 Porsche Boxster debut their first appearance at the Geneva auto show in Switzerland. Porsche having thoroughly reengineered the 2013 Porsche Boxster model to a degree that hasn’t been seen since the original was added to its lineup back in 1996. Porsche went back to the drawing board when it came time to conceive the new 2013 Porsche Boxster, known under the code name 981.
The only elements that have been brought over into the 2013 Porsche Boxster from the old model, the 987, are the engine and gearbox, and even then they have been subtly reworked for added levels of smoothness, performance and fuel efficiency; the result is a driving experience every bit as captivating as any previous Boxster model but with little or no compromise to its everyday abilities.
The 2013 Porsche Boxster redesign is both familiar and different at the same time. Porsche has found a proper nose-to-tail balance in the 2013 Porsche Boxster styling, something that may have been lost between the handsome concept first shown in the early ’90s and the initial production versions.
The classic low-slung roadster shape carries over to the 2013 Porsche Boxster specs, but all-new styling introduces a design theme with more creases and sharper edges, particularly along the sides of the car leading to the scalloped intakes and over the rear wheels. The 2013 Porsche Boxster headlight assemblies have a more vertical shape than before, but they don’t dramatically alter the front end. In the back of the 2013 Porsche Boxster, Porsche elegantly integrates the rear spoiler with the taillights.
Among its many developments are a new lightweight floor pan and body of the 2013 Porsche Boxster, some 46 percent of which is now fashioned out of aluminum, including the front and rear end structures, doors, hood, trunk lid and the mounting for the rollover hoops behind the cabin.
The result is a 77-pound reduction in curb weight for the 2013 Porsche Boxster S over its steel-bodied predecessor on sale in North America since 2004; that’s not as much weight as Porsche cut from the 911, but it manages to buck the trend of its roadster rivals. The 2013 Porsche Boxster dimensions is bigger, too; the length is up by about 1.8 inches to 172.2 inches, but width and height remain the same as before at 70.9 inches and 50.4 inches.
The 2.36-inch bump in the wheelbase to 97.4 inches has enabled Porsche to repackage the 2013 Porsche Boxster interior, providing it with greater length and the scope for added seat adjustment. The 2013 Porsche Boxster also gets a redesigned interior that follows in the footsteps of other recent Porsches by adopting upscale materials befitting the car’s premium price. The padded dashboard of the 2013 Porsche Boxster looks good, and a slimmer version of Porsche’s button-centric center console separates the bucket seats.
Roof up, the new 2013 Porsche Boxster is now a more pleasant place to be. New sound-deadening material has cut noise levels from a previous 75 decibels to 71 decibels — a figure that results in a halving of ambient noise and further pushes home the new 2013 Porsche Boxster model’s improved long-distance qualities. Dropping the 2013 Porsche Boxster hardtop, an improved version of the old Boxster’s magnesium-framed and multilayer fabric-covered structure, no longer requires manual twist-and-turn.
