Porsche Dallas Review of the 2013 Porsche Boxster
Posted By: Park Place Porsche Dallas - 2012-07-17
2013 Porsche Boxster: you have to feel it to understand the independent spirit of this intelligent purebred convertible roadster.
2013 Porsche Boxster has a completely new redesign that revitalizes its spirit that you must feel it to understand it. The third generation convertible sports car is available for sale at Park Place Porsche Dallas, serving Dallas, Fort Worth and North Texas. The dealership is located at 6113 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas, TX 75209.
With its new 2.7-liter lightweight six-engine gearbox, the 2013 Boxster revs out 265hp at 6700 rpm, 10 more horses than the previous generation. Dashing from 0 to 60 takes a spine-tingling 5.4 seconds. The six-speed manual continues to serve as the standard transmission with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch available as an option.
Along with shedding over 50 pounds, the wheelbase grows by 2.4 inches and its length by 1.3 inches. The shorter windshield moves closer to the face of the car supplying the roadster with a more intense look and personality. Porsche increased rigidity in its torsion by 40 percent and dropping the center of gravity by a quarter of an inch. The little details here create a wholly different experience.
One feature that's hallmark Porsche is its mid-engine, which has been around since the 1950s. The car manufacturer sticks with the mid-mounted engine because its mass is strongest in the center of the roadster providing balance and heightening its cornering capabilities with the low center of gravity. It's because of this mid-engine that Porsche cars have celebrated many racing victories.
While you may not drive on a racetrack daily, engineers have built the mid-engine to ensure performance carries over from racetrack to the road. A notable addition to the mid-engine is Intelligence Performance. It's the secret sauce for more power and less fuel consumption and emissions.
How does the new Porsche Boxster get its spirit? It could be the expression from the sharp lines and curves in all the right places. It could be power you hear and feel from its mid-engine. It could be the soft top that you can open and close while traveling up to 30 mph. It could the way it struts around town like a rebel without a cause. Whatever it is, you can't help but feel compelled to jump in and drive away with it.
"All-new for 2013, the Porsche Boxster is more capable on track and off, and more refined inside and out--in fact, it may just be the best of the compact luxury roadster crop," writes Nelson Ireson in the Car Connection review.
It's OK to desire more. And you'll find it in the Boxster. Intelligent. Independent. Spirited. Check out our Park Place inventory here, and feel it all by going for a ride in the 2013 Porsche Boxster waiting for you at Park Place Porsche Dallas, your Dallas / Fort Worth Porsche dealership.
