Who does not know a Porsche? Exotic German brand is popular with middle-engined or a rear-engined sports car, with the benchmark performance in its class competitors. Porsche Boxster is a model that is enough to get a place in the hearts of fans, because this is an entry-level variant of Porsche. Porsche Boxster also briefly became the largest purse collector for Porsche since its introduction in 1996, before his time is shifted by the Cayenne SUV.
Porsche Boxster S PDK engines rely boxster six-cylinder (flat-6) 3.6 liter normally aspirated (no turbo). As is known, Boxter engine configuration using the movement of the cylinder horizontally, not vertically like most regular car engine. This machine is placed in the middle (mid engine), or in between the cab and the rear axle. So, do not be surprised if you will find two trunk (front and rear), but could not open the machine, as isolated under the rear floor.
This machine is claimed to be 15% more efficient than previous models, and is capable of producing 315 hp (at 6,700 rpm), with a maximum torque of 360 Nm is available from 4,500 rpm to 5,800 rpm. Power and torque is channeled to the rear wheels via a 7-speed transmission with PDK technology, or any other term is the transmission with double clutch / dual clutch. How it works is approximately the same as the other dual clutch transmission. The standard version of the Porsche Boxster only equipped 6-speed manual transmission.
Most of the platforms it uses monocoque made from aluminum. While in some parts are made of a mixture of magnesium and high-strength steel, in order to save weight. In addition, 46% of its body is also made from aluminum. According to Porsche, the Porsche Boxster S with PDK transmission now has a weight of 1,350 kg or 30 kg lighter than the previous generation (Boxster 987). It is also likely to help alleviate the work machine, so that it can be more efficient.
The design was not going to make us one characterize. From a distance this was already seen as a Porsche. Three intakes in front of the projector lamp, makes it looks more ferocious. While behind the design looks exotic with dynamic brake lights and stern curves are neat. In this section, hidden wings that would arise if needed to help the aerodynamics.
The car you see here, is equipped with the optional PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), which is capable of continuously adjusting the damping force, according to road conditions. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) was also present as an optional feature to regulate the distribution of traction to the rear wheels, so the car can be more accurate cornering, without having to skid. With electro-mechanical power steering are also installed as a standard feature to help control, just as you can find in the Porsche 911.
As a prestigious car, the interior of the Porsche Boxster course formulated so fascinating, ranging from the material used to finishing it. Porsche Interior (any models) can always be ordered according to the choice and taste of consumers. Porsche offers a variety of options for the interior, ranging from color to choice seats.
Architecturally, the interior reminds us of the 911 or even the Panamera. This is understandable because the Porsche Boxster is one that uses the latest Porsche interior design theme. More than that, the glass front that moved forward and more ramps, to be one contribution to the breadth of the field of view on the Porsche Boxster. A somewhat disturbing, pedals seem somewhat offset to the left, but it does not matter because it is still within reasonable limits.
Arrangement of buttons on the dashboard is not too complicated, because the strict regulation. AC setting in front of the gear lever, while other arrangements are put in the back. The center console of the dashboard into the 7 inch screen which is the heart of the system of information and entertainment. This screen can display navigation, play music from the radio / CD / DVD which is voice thrown by Bose speakers, connect Bluetooth, as well as other necessary information.
Although the machine is behind your back, but do not expect there will be heat input. In fact, the noise can be isolated properly. And behind your back, too, is storage space for roof when folded. Roof made of fabric will be folded in just nine seconds. Press the eject button on the center console, the roof will be open and folded in the compartment. Similarly, when closing. Roofing materials used may be made of cloth, but make no mistake because this fabric has been designed to absorb noise, so noise can be muted. This was coupled with the damping material made of fleece. Heavy rain was not going to make it hard.
