Never before in the history of the Boxster was the change of the generation so comprehensive. Compared to the previous Width is the only dimension that stayed exactly the same. The engine in the Boxster S is basically the same 3. With the Boxster GTS, the power-to-weight ratio is better than on the Carrera Cabriolet.

The PDK gearbox adds significant weight to the car, but with its 7 speeds it is almost as fast on the race track as the manual one. The engagement, and therefore the fun factor, is naturally lower with the PDK compared to the manual gearbox.

You would expect the PDK serve better in the city traffic, but actually it is a bit unresponsive as the PDK-equipped cars are programmed to use very low engine revolutions. To overcome the laziness, you have to activate the Sport-regime every time you start the engine.

Then again, don't expect the car to emit less CO2 than the manual one. The lower CO2 figures with the PDK are achieved with driving style not typical to the Porsche driver. With natural driving style, there is no benefits regarding the CO2 emissions. To use the technology of the PDK to the full on the race track, you have to specify the car with the Sport Chrono package.

Not because of the silly stop watch on the dashboard, but because of the Sport Plus button which makes the car fast almost in anybody's hands in the fully automatic mode. The Sport Chrono package is also needed to get the Launch Control function. The gear changes with the PDK are eyeblink-quick when you change one gear at the time. If, for example, you want to change from 4th to 2nd, the gear change takes time as the gears are on the same shaft and the power must first be shifted to the other shaft before the gear change can be carried out.

Interestingly, the official acceleration figures with manual gearbox vs. PDK are not comparable because they are measured from the moment the car starts to move and not from the moment the start is given in the drag race. The acceleration from standstill with the PDK without launch control is comparable to the previous Tiptronic cars, so considerably weaker than with the manual gearbox.

If, for example, you use the PDK in the drag race and you have activated the Launch Control, you have a dilemma, if to start accelerating immediately not to wear the clutch or to wait for the green light and cause wear to the clutch. The Boxster production started in Porsche's main factory in Stuttgart in the beginning ofwith Volkswagen Osnabrück GmbH supplying the rear and side parts for the cars.

On September 19,the production was also started in Osnabrück at the ex-Karmann factory to have more production capacity for the in Stuttgart. In Osnabrück, a small plant was opened already in March for VW Golf Cabriolet production and the series Porsches, the Boxster and the Caymanwere also made there. This was not the first time that vehicles were produced for Porsche in Osnabrück.

Before the generation, the Boxsters and the Caymans were produced at the Valmet Automotive factory in Uusikaupunki, Finland. Initially, the production was agreed with Magna Steyr car factory in Graz, Austria, but after Porsche's takeover by Volkswagen, the most suitable VW plant was naturally chosen.

The Porsche is the internal designation given to the third-generation of the Boxster and second generation of the Cayman models built by German automobile manufacturer Porsche. It was announced on 13 March at the Geneva Auto Show with sales starting early summer The reflects the new design language from the andand features revised engine and transmission specifications.

The instrument cluster features a 4. The Sport Chrono Package includes dynamic gearbox mounts. The standard Boxster is fitted with a new 2. The 2. Both engines are equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 7-speed reworked PDK. Both manual and automatic models are available with several technical options including Porsche Torque Vectoring PTV and a Sport Chrono Package that includes active transmission mounts, and makes the PDK-equipped model even faster.

Porsche unveiled the latest Boxster Spyder based on the Boxster in April at the New York Auto Show. The styling of the car is similar to the previous generation Spyder, continuing the twin hump rear deck and manually operated canvas top. It also shares some styling with the Cayman GT4, using the same front and rear fascia.

The engine is also shared with the Cayman GT4, but mildly detuned. This was achieved through the use of aluminium doors and rear boot lid, a manually operated canvas soft top with electronic assist and unique lightweight 20 inch wheels. The air conditioning and audio system were also removed, although they could be added as no cost options. A limited slip differential shared with the Cayman GT4 with Porsche Torque Vectoring was also used and the model features a 20mm lower ride height than the standard Boxster.

Additionally it also borrows the steering rack from the Turbo S along with the same reduced diameter GT steering wheel as used in both the GT3 and Cayman GT4. The Boxster Spyder was only available with a 6 speed manual transmission. The second generation Cayman was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The production version was introduced as a model in the spring of The new car was available in both the standard trim with a 2.

Both versions were available with either a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch 7-speed PDK transmission. The features upgrades including a new body, a longer wheelbase, a wider front track, and a redesigned interior that matches the firm's contemporary models. The new model gained acclaim in the motoring press as one of the best handling sports cars at any price, due to its-mid engine layout and driving dynamics.

The Cayman S benefitted from the same engine and running gear as Porsche's latest 3. The Cayman GTS was introduced inand is based on the platform. It featured a marginally more powerful engine, a new body kit, new inch Carrera S wheels, new Bi-Xenon headlights, and a new sports exhaust system.

The Cayman GTS is longer than the Cayman and the Cayman S by The configuration changes made over a standard Cayman S resemble closely what Porsche did to its predecessors through Cayman S Sport and Cayman R in the generation models. Ina high performance track oriented version of the Cayman, named the Cayman GT4 was introduced, using a revised and a slightly de-tuned version of the 3.

It has a vented front bumper to improve cooling for the additional radiator, with a lower lip spoiler as well as a fixed rear wing for providing downforce. A number of reinforcements were also made throughout the chassis to keep it stiff and well balanced. A Club Sport Package is also available, featuring a rear half rollcage, preparation for a battery cut off switch, a fire extinguisher and a six-point racing harness for the driver, compatible with a neck saving HANS device.

Sport Chrono Package with unique Track Precision app is also available specifically for the GT4, adding an additional ECU to the car to deliver telemetry data to the driver's smartphone. In the United Kingdom, the GT4 could be ordered before its introduction at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and the first cars would arrive in dealerships in March.

On 6 OctoberPorsche announced a racing version of the Cayman GT4 called the Cayman GT4 Clubsport. Developed by Porsche Motorsport, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport made its debut at the LA Auto Show in November. It is powered by the same 3. As opposed to the road going Cayman GT4, the Clubsport version is fitted with Porsche's PDK double clutch transmission albeit with the 7th gear disabled with shift paddles on the steering wheel, as well as mechanical rear-axle locking differential.

Its ABS is adjustable in 12 steps. A litre FIA-approved "bag" fuel tank is available as an option for endurance racing. In addition to its lightweight features, it is supplied fitted with an FIA welded-in roll-cage, six-point harness and racing bucket seats. Sales of the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport commenced after its debut in November through Porsche Motorsport in Weissach or Porsche Motorsport North America.
