The Boxster receives a new 2.9-liter boxer engine, while the Boxster S receives an upgraded 3.4-liter engine, both providing more horsepower and improved fuel economy over last year's units. A new PDK (Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) double clutch auto-manual transmission replaces the Tiptronic-S, while a six-speed manual gearbox is now standard on the base Boxster. LED daytime running lights occupy the space previously reserved for the Boxster's fog lights.

Although the Cayman, by virtue of the added rigidity of its hardtop, maintains the ultimate edge in handling, away from the race track for most drivers the Boxster provides comparable performance excitement with the added allure of a convertible top, a bit more comfort and definitely more available storage via two roomy trunks.

About Porsche Boxster

Fresh off a revamp, the 2014 Porsche Boxster is an exhilarating mid-engine, rear-drive convertible that nearly captures the sexy 911-style appeal that the Cayman has mastered. This 3rd-generation Boxster is slightly bigger than past models, but is lighter, tighter and more fuel efficient in both base and hopped-up Boxster S forms. Its cabin is quieter, and you can fold its soft top in just nine seconds at speeds up to 31 mph. Though more refined, Porsche's 2-seat roadster still loves to tackle twisty roads. The Boxster doesn't have the folding hardtop of a BMW Z4 or Mercedes-Benz SLK, or the easier-to-digest starting prices of the Audi TT and Nissan 370Z convertibles, but does boast what none of those can touch: the dynamics and prestige of a Porsche.

"I traded a 2010 Boxster for a 2013 Boxster base. THe new car is superior in every way. The ride has improved immensely and the body structure is unbelievably solid. I live on North Michigan Ave in Chicago and drive in a lot of heavy traffic and the stop start function is incredible. The other feature of the PDK which is incredible is that it coasts on the highway when you back off your speed. the engine reves go to 1200 rpm and when you accelerate the car engine react instantaneously. The sport position on the transmission quicken acceleration response. Every little detail has been improved, e.i quality of the turning lever, the cup holders, interior design and quality. and last but not least the handling has been measurably improved. the car is a sublime driving experience!"

"Traded in a 2006 Boxster for 2013. Car is a completely different animal. Much faster, tighter and more fun to drive. It is very comfortable. I drove the car from New York to Florida and had no road fatigue or back discomfort. Living in Florida, the top is hardly ever up, but when those quick rains come, 9 seconds to put the top down on the fly is nice. The car is a real head turner. Only 3 negatives. The 2006 had a solid plexiglass windscreen which filtered out noise so well that you could talk on a bluetooth going 80 mph without the other person hearing wind noise. The 2013 boxster has a mesh windscreen which is extremely noisy and cold at night. 2nd negative is the slide to move the seat forward had the hook facing upward so you could hang a hat on it. The 2013 has the hook going down so there is no place to put a hat. 3rd negative. They removed the storage cabinet behind the driver. I would highly recommend the car. In my opinion the straight boxster is plenty fast so the "S" for $10k extra is not needed. If you get the car enjoy it. It is an everyday driver for me. I have a six speed and the clutch is light and the throw is short and tight. You will love this car."

"2013 Boxster is my first Porsche and I have no regrets. I was so excited to get this car that I ordered it in the fall of 2012. I use it as a daily commuter car, and have been happy with the gas mileage (about 29 MPG). The instruments are intuitive. It is also very comfortable on road trips. I did not appreciate the performance until I attended Porsche Driving School and realized how incredible it really is. The 2 trunks provides plenty of storage, and I love the fact that the roof can be raised in a matter of second while going as fast as 34 MPH. I highly recommend 3 upgrades: 1) full leather interior is a wonderful luxury to the cockpit; 2) bi-zenon lights is a must (I drive a winding country road) to illuminate; and 3) multi-purpose steering wheel to control the computer, radio, and phone. I thought I wanted the manual transmission, but hubby talked me into the PDK. The dual gear box switches gears so much faster than any human can. PDK makes driving in traffic easier or the giddy-up for the highway. The Boxster is no longer a Porsche starter car. It is an equal to its 911 big brother."
