The design of a Porsche always speaks in a universal language: People everywhere love to drive. But something about a 2009 Boxster speaks with a voice like that of a Siren. It calls to you and resistance seems futile. What its aerodynamically chiseled exterior promises is too enticing. What its aesthetically intelligent interior conveys is too compelling. At first glance or in fifth gear the Boxster and Boxster S delivers a flood of sensations—evoking everything that is irresistible about a Porsche. The way it connects you to the open road. The way it responds instantly to every driver input. Both Boxster models are powered by new more potent six-cylinder “boxer” engines with four-valve cylinder heads. That smooth scream you hear each time you prod the throttle is the spirited response of an engine designed to breathe deeply. The result: a maximum of 295 hp on the Boxster S and 245 hp on the standard Boxster models. How do you create a driving experience that is soothing and totally invigorating at the same time? By combining ergonomic designs distilled from decades of endurance racing with amenities such as supple Leather in a variety of colors. The ability to add interior accents from a menu of exotic materials—everything from Carbon Fiber to rich wood veneers—is all part of the equation. If driving is your passion there is no substitute for the sheer inspiration of the 2009 Porsche Boxster.
