I went to see the new generation of Porsche Boxter S 2013 that just arrived to Porsche Center in Al Rai. I didn’t like the old Porsche Boxter which was first introduced in 1996; neither design nor engine performance were cool back then, but I see alot of improvements were made to the exterior body and interior of the new generation, the vibrant red color looked hot.
From what I understood the body is now lighter and performance was improved, also the wheelbase and track have grown for better stability. I’m liking the seven-speed PDK transmissions which should produce smoother power delivery. As for the engine it produces 315 HP and accelerates from 0-100 KM in 4.8-5.1 secs which could have been even more impressive. The convertible red top looked cool but why didn’t they use hardtop like Mercedes-Benz?
They said the retail price is KD17,500 and the fitted options worth KD4,520, so total price KD22,000
