The 2013 Porsche Boxster

2013 Porsche Boxster offers more HP and more MPG

The fuel economy ratings have just been released for the 2013 Porsche Boxster and this more powerful yet smaller Boxer flat-six engine offers better fuel economy when mated to either the manual or automatic transmission options – with the most efficient models offering 22mpg around town and 32mpg on the open road.

The 2013 Porsche Boxster with the standard 2.7L engine and the seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission known as the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) offers 22 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway. For comparison, the 2012 Porsche Boxster with the old 2.9L engine offered just 20 miles per gallon around town and 29 on the highway so the new base Boxster offers improvements of 2 and 3mpg respectively. When equipped with the six speed manual transmission, the 2013 Boxster offers 20mpg around town and 30 on the highway – improvements of 1mpg in the city and 3mpg on the open road. This same engine allows the 2013 Boxster packed with the PDK to dash from 0-60 in just 5.2 seconds (when equipped with the sport package, 5.4 without) and hit a top speed of 162 miles per hour. When fitted with the manual transmission, the 2013 Boxster can hit 60 in just 5.5 seconds en route to a top speed of 164mph.
