Porsche Boxster Model Years

Overview

Research by Year

When Porsche introduced the Boxster in 1997, it offered buyers a unique blend of performance and value pricing—a pairing not commonly seen in premium two-seat roadsters. That combination made it an instant hit with American buyers.

The latest Boxster features a pair of engines that should please a wide variety of tastes. Base models come with a new flat-six that drops displacement to 2.7 liters but boosts horsepower to 265. The more performance-oriented Boxster S retains the familiar 3.4-liter flat-six that now produces 315 horsepower—a 5-horsepower bump.

With a manual transmission, the Boxster makes the 0 to 60 dash in around 5.5 seconds, while the Boxster gets there in only 4.7.

Major changes included:

In 2013, Porsche introduced the third-generation Boxster. It came in with the same basic shape as the previous generations, but with new doors, a shortened nose and new LED taillights. The Boxster's interior also received a comprehensive overhaul as well. The base Boxster came standard with a new 2.7-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that kicked out 265 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed manual transmission -- a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission was optional. The Boxster S carried the same 3.4-liter six-cylinder as the last generation, but with five more horsepower, giving it 315 ponies in total.
