Between 718 Porsche 718 Boxster and Boxster S are distinguished on the engine choice.
There are unique things that happen on the Porsche 718 Boxster, according autonetmagz.com Making Idea Behind the Boxster itself is quite unique. Let me get away from the valley of bankruptcy, Porsche had to make a model that must be sold, but still will not drop their image. They can not rely on the Porsche 928 or 944, because the Porsche FR coupe elderly. They also can not rely on the concept Porsche 989, prospective 4-door sedan Panamera Porsche before, because it’s time away from the word passionate segment.
Porsche saw the success of the Mazda MX-5 is selling like hotcakes all over the world, and they immediately realized, the small roadster market when it is good-good. Before you go jump Porsche, BMW and Mercedes have followed the footsteps of the Mazda MX-5 with spawn BMW Z3 and Mercedes Benz SLK. Porsche slightly rack my brain how they can jump into this market but without sounding bandwagon
He continued, “front-engined Roadster was always, let’s make the middle-engine roadster!” Approximately so the contents of Porsche’s head. Porsche was clever, they took inspiration from the Porsche 550 Spyder that James Dean used. However, the Porsche Boxster has not been able to realize alone because their production activity very, very slow. After aided by several arms of Toyota (yes, Toyota), Porsche could make their production more effective, efficient and minimal error.
Previously, they took 120 hours to make one car, but after assisted, only need 72 hours, accompanied by the error rate down to 50%. Porsche Boxster first generation (code 986) was built in conjunction with a coded 911 Porsche 996 and Porsche Boxster is positioned as a sports car that caste under 911.
It’s beyond reason to read the story behind the making of this Porsche Boxter. In the past millennium the 2000s, first appeared Porsche Boxster S with a flat 6 engine 3200 cc 250 hp, three radiators, the brakes of the Carrera, dual exhausts and rims 911. As with the advent of the Boxster S, the standard Boxster engine is bigger so 2,700 cc , 217 hp. In that year, with a machine like that Porsche is gahar streets. Coupled with the current Boxster transmission options that are 5-speed manual or automatic with manual shift mode on the steering wheel and at that time there has been no transmission PDK.
Besides praising the sales are selling well in the world automotive market praised how to design Porsche Boxster. Kecapatan shown by a car that is indeed very intriguing, acceleration and top speed is not the most prominent in the current Boxster, but handling, balance and flavors berkendaranya curves that seemed to unite the driver with his car. Not to mention, as good-car delish FR (Front-Rear Wheel Drive Engine) like the Z4 or SLK, a sense of driving MR (Mid Engine-Rear Wheel Drive) on the Boxster gives a glimmer of the sensation of driving a supercar.
