New Porsche 'offers greater fuel efficiency and power'

Wed, 19 Nov 2008
People who are planning to buy a car next year may want to take a look at a new model from Porsche.

The second generation of the mid-engined Boxster has been unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show and the manufacturer has claimed drivers can expect better performance and greater fuel efficiency.

Porsche described the new flat-six boxer engine as the highlight of the new vehicle and stated it had contributed to the car's improved economy and power.

It also said the Doppelkupplungsgetriebe - the new double-clutch gearbox - had played a part in these changes.

People buying a car in the UK will be able to drive away in the vehicle from February 21st next year.

The Boxster will cost from £34,420, while prices for the Boxster S will start at £41,250.

In other news, Porsche recently announced its Driving Experience Centre - which is next to the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit - is now open.
