Engine/ Fuel Efficiency

The engine of the Porsche Boxter 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter with 300 horsepower and 280lb-ft torque. In terms of fuel efficiency, Porsche have not released the figures but we guess it’s not the most economical. But this is something you need to sacrifice for the 170 mph top speed and 0-60 acceleration in 4.9 seconds. With the touch of a button you can lift and drop the hood in 9 seconds too. The 6-speed manual transmission is standard and offers short shift times which improve with the optional Sport Chrono Package.
