The 2005 Porsche Boxster: A Preview of What’s to Come
Be prepared to have your breath taken away. The new 2005 Porche Boxster is going to hit the market on January 15th, 2005. It’s truly a beautiful vehicle, but don’t let the exquisite exterior fool you. It’s got some major power and acceleration under the hood.
Eight years after its first appearance, the Porsche Boxster is now entering its second generation. And in this process, it’s become even more dynamic, more sporty, and more exuberant. This should come as no surprise considering that almost eighty per cent of all the parts and components on the new 2005 Porsche Boxster model series are new.
The 2005 Porsche Boxster could easily be mistaken for a 997 Turbo (since they look so similar). Though a major difference is that the Boxster will have three large air intakes in the front skirt and wider fenders and track. With this model, Porsche is likely to make seventeen inch wheels standard, with eighteen inch wheels as an option.
The affordable new 2005 Porsche Boxter is going to be Porsche's entry-level model as a rival to Audi's TT V-6, Mazda's RX-8, the Mercedes SLK, and the Nissan 350Z . Power for the standard version will come from a 2.7-liter engine with two hundred and forty horse power. In the S version it may reach two hundred and seventy to two hundred and eights horsepower, and propel the car to an estimated top speed of two hundred and fifty kilometers an hour. A 3.4-liter engine with three hundred horsepower is also a possibility.
The 2005 Porsche Boxster intends to extend its leading position in the roadster market, by offering even greater driving pleasure while providing more active and passive safety.
Larger wheels and a wider wheel alignment clearly emphasize the continued development of the body form. At the same time they symbolize the increase in performance. The new front of the vehicle clearly show a relationship with the 911 series but still features the typical Boxster face. The new lighting concept with the separation of main headlamps and front lamps with integrated fog lamps is characteristic of this.
In the USA, the price for the 2005 Porsche Boxster is $43,800 and $53,100 for the Boxster S (excluding tax). That price is reasonable when you consider this is a Porsche we’re talking about.
