2011 model year changes
While most of the Porsche Boxster lineup carries over to 2011 unchanged, the Boxster Spyder is new, a model that aims for weight savings and go-lean track prowess above all else. The Porsche Boxster Spyder--most easily identified by its two humps just behind the two seating positions--is a new variant of the Boxster focused for the track. It shaves off precious pounds by offering a removable canvas top instead of the standard Boxster's convenient power soft top. Air conditioning is optional on the Spyder, and a CD sound system is optional at no cost. A number of interior trim changes have also been made. The Spyder comes only in Boxster S form, with the 320-hp, 3.4L engine. As such, it can reach 60 mph in as little as 4.6 seconds, according to Porsche, and it actually gets slightly better fuel economy, at 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
Classic sports-car look and feel; excellent handling and poise; surprisingly good fuel efficiency
Special features for 2011
The 2011 Porsche Boxster is a true standout in the market--a mid-engine sports car that can hold its own on the track, yet be reasonably comfortable as a touring car with solid fuel economy. The Boxster's steering and handling are praised far and wide as among the best of any vehicle, while its good seats and flexible engines make it just as much at home on the commute as the track. This year, the new Spyder now appeases those who want an even leaner Boxster that makes some sacrifices but is focused entirely toward lap times and driving feel.
The 2011 Porsche Boxster is a mid-engine roadster that is powered by a 2.9-liter flat-6 engine that produces 255 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque. Upgrading to the Boxster S model grants the driver a 3.4-liter flat-6 engine that produces 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The top trim is a light-weight Boxster Spyder that boasts the same engine as the Boxster S but thanks to 176 lbs of weight loss gets 320 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. All boaster models are RWD and come standard with a six-speed manual transmission. The Boxster gets an EPA estimated 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Options include PDK transmission, Porsche Communication Management system, Bose® sound system, hardtop, and Bluetooth® connectivity. Safety features are comprised of 6 airbags, Porsche Stability Management, Porsche Side Impact Protection, vehicle tracking system/anti-theft protection, and advanced four-piston aluminum monoblock brake calipers. The Boxster comes with a 4-years/50,000-mile warranty.
