The Porsche Boxster is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive, sports car, first launched in 1996. In 2005, Porsche unveiled the new generation of Boxsters with styling inspired by the Carrera GT. Porsche premiered the face-lifted 2009 Boxster and Boxster S models at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November 2008. Displacement in the standard Boxster's flat-six engine increased from 2.7 to 2.9 liters, increasing horsepower from 245 to 255. Use of DFI in the Boxster S raised the output of the 3.4 liter engine from 295 to 310 horsepower. Both models are now available with Porsche's new 7-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox but come standard with a new 6-speed manual gearbox. Cosmetic changes include new head and tail lights, larger front air intakes with incorporated day time running lights, and an altered lower rear end flanked by twin diffusers. The interior has an optional touchscreen interface to reduce button clutter. Buy it now
