Everybody knows that Porsche cars are totally expensive but how many of them know that why these cars cost so much? Well, let’s try to figure out this puzzle as we will go through the features and performances of the Porsche Boxter S here.
The Engine and the Performance
With 6-cylinder 315hp engine the Boxter S has been built to produce powerful performances. If you know about cars and the horsepower equation then you will see that though the 315hp at 6700rpm is not industry leading and certainly not the fastest but it is good enough to produce some decent speedy performances. The engine is mid-range, as it can be assumed easily from the amount of horsepower and torque (266 lb.-ft.) it generates but the performance is quite good. Most car owners will be happy to have a Porsche that can run at 173mph (max) on the roads which is not practically used even on highways. However, the acceleration of the Porsche Boxter S just runs like hell as it takes only an incredible 4.8 seconds (max) to reach to 60 mph from the standstill. This is serious acceleration which the teenagers will really like. Also it comes with 6-speed dual manual gear that seems to be pretty impressive.
Fuel Consumption and the Verdict
The fuel consumption rate is good with the Boxter S as it can pull off about 20mpg on the city roads and 28mpg on highways. This will surely please most car owners and a lot more will think about moving to this beauty. As for the price, in the US markets it has been listed as over $60000 car that will cost quite a few bucks for those who were looking for a cheaper solution from Porsche. Overall, the Boxter S seems to be quite good if you have the money.
