It also offers a change of style with shorter protrusions, a windshield moved to the front a little, a flattering silhouette and edges more expressive. Passengers will travel in a redesigned cab, fully electronic. The interior has more space and reflects the new shape with its new center console, which was first used in the Carrera GT and ensures an improved ergonomics in all models.
The new 2013 generation of cars will debut with the classic couple: Boxster and Boxster S. Both have six-cylinder engines and direct injection, whose efficiency is enhanced by an electrical system recovery, thermal management and the function start/stop.
