Fun, nimble, and sporty; speedy convertible top; available high performance.
Ten years after the Boxster roadster debuted, it continues on as Porsche's least expensive model, and remains one of the most thrilling cars on the road for the dollar.
Two engines are offered, with a horizontally opposed six-cylinder 2.7L engine appearing on the base Boxster and a 3.4L version of the same engine found in the Boxster S. The smaller engine produces 245 horsepower, while the S has 295 horsepower on hand. Both powerplants use VarioCam technology for 2007 to vary both the valve timing and the valve lift on the intake camshaft. The result is increased power and improved fuel efficiency.
The base Boxster has a five-speed manual transmission with a manual six-speed optional. The S gets the six-speed standard, and both models can opt for a five-speed Tiptronic transmission with gear selectors mounted behind the steering wheel.
A mid-engined design gives the car a low polar moment of inertia, which enables the Boxster to navigate turns with a nimbleness that has to be experienced to be believed. The extra oomph of the S is helpful when putting the power down coming out of the corner, but the basic Boxster is also a highly entertaining and exceptionally capable vehicle.
The Boxster is very well equipped, with heated power mirrors, power leather seats, power windows and locks, an alarm system, and automatic climate control. The Boxster S adds heated windshield wiper fluid, aluminum interior trim, and an anti-theft system. Mote importantly, the S has bigger brakes (the same as are found on the 911), dual exhaust, larger wheels, a tuned suspension, and performance tires to help maximize the 3.4L's ample power.
The power cloth top stows quickly, and can be lowered while driving up to 30 mph. Unusual options on the Boxster include adaptive sport seats that adjust the amount of bolster support, an automatic rear spoiler, ceramic brakes, and a fire extinguisher. A host of wheels and color schemes are available, as are more typical luxury items, such as heated seats, enhanced audio systems, xenon headlights, and a navigation system.
Thanks to Porsche's VarioCam Plus technology, power has jumped on the 2007 Boxster to 245 horsepower, while the Boxster S is now rated at 295. The optional Tiptronic S transmission has been updated with revised, quicker gearshift action.
Also for 2007 the access for the oil and antifreeze fillers has been hidden under a small hatch in the rear trunk, thus freeing up a few more precious cubic inches in the cargo area.
The 2007 Porsche Boxster is pure driving pleasure, while the Boxster S elevates the roadster's essence to one of exhilaration. The electric convertible top is one of the quickest and most efficient in the industry, and the engine and gearbox both conspire to make you feel as though you are a better driver than you thought possible. Braking from the four-wheel, ABS equipped discs is astounding. You could almost call the Boxster twins practical, too, with nearly 10 cubic feet of storage space split between the front are rear trunks.
