Press release from: Porsche of Ocala

Ocala, FL – June 19, 2012 – Porsche of Ocala today announced that the new 2013 Porsche Boxster models have arrived in their Ocala showroom. The third-generation of the highly regarded Porsche sports car launches on June 28.

Never before in the history of the Porsche Boxster has a change of generation been so comprehensive. The new Boxster weighs up to 77 pounds less than the previous generation while riding on a longer wheelbase and a wider track. Larger wheels, a restyled interior reminiscent of the Carrera GT supercar and a redesigned, fully electric top that now opens and closes in nine seconds help make the hi-performance roadster even more livable for everyday use.

“This is the classic mid-engine Porsche pairing,” said Nestor Mena, Porsche of Ocala General Manager. “The new Boxster and Boxster S have been thoroughly updated with aggressive styling and more powerful engines, while being more comfortable and fuel efficient. With optional features like Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) and the Sport Chrono Package, these perfectly balanced mid-engined roasters, now in their third-generation, are an absolute blast to drive.”

Both the Boxster and the Boxster S are powered by flat-six engines with direct fuel injection and a highly efficient electrical system recuperation feature, thermal management and a Stop/Start function. The base model’s new power unit delivers 265 hp from an engine displacing 2.7 liters and provides ten hp more than its larger displacement predecessor. The 315 hp 3.4-liter engine of the Boxster S now delivers five more hp than before.

Both models are equipped with a manual six-speed gearbox as standard with the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission optional and both versions achieve their best fuel consumption and acceleration with the PDK. With no power flow interruption during gear changes, the Boxster sprints from zero to 60 mph in as little 5.2 seconds, the Boxster S in as little as 4.5 seconds. The EPA rates the Boxster at 32 mpg highway, and the Boxster S at 30 mpg with the PDK.

The base list price will be $49,500 for the Boxster and $60,900 for the Boxster S, not including a $950 destination charge.
