Porsche Boxster S ~ 2005-2007

Like the entry-level car, the Boxster S was treated to a major revamp for 2005. The front featurednew headlights to distinguish it further from the 911,plus a new nose with large intakes. At the back the wings became more shapely and there were new light clusters. Porsche Boxster S (987)

The interior was all-new, with a neater instrument binnacle, round air vents, and an angular centre console that was similar to that in the 997-model 911. The three-spoke steering wheel was also not unlike the 911 item.

The engine remained essentially the same 3.2-litre unit from the previous Boxster S, but power increased by 20bhp to 280bhp. Porsche Boxster S (987)

PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) became an option, allowing the choice of two grades of damper firmness. Another new option was the Porsche Chrono Package, which gave a modified engine map and a sophisticated stopwatch system. Porsche Boxster S (987)

Also optional for the first time on a Boxster was PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes), which gave 350mm lightweight ceramic brake discs and trademark yellow calipers.
