2016,
2016,The Base-level Boxster is powered by a 2.7L flat-6-cylinder engine that makes 265 horsepower. The S gets a 3.4L version of the flat-six, tuned to make 315 horsepower. The GTS is also powered by a 3.4L, though thanks partially to a standard sport exhaust, the GTS makes 330 horsepower. Two transmissions are available: a 6-speed manual is standard and PDK 7-speed dual clutch transmission is optional on all three models.
