2000 Porsche Boxster

For the 2000 model year, the Porsche Boxster engine received a larger displacement size, growing from 2.5 to 2.7 liters. As a result, horsepower rose from 200 to 214 hp. A new option was added to the lineup, the Boxster 'S', which featured a 3.2-liter engine which offered an impressive 250 horsepower for the small 2-seater cabriolet. Pricing for the base model was $42,100 while the eagerly sought after 'S' version sold for $50,200.

The mid-engine Boxster had a five-speed manual as standard with an optional five-speed automatic. The 'S' came with a six-speed gearbox sourced from the 911.

There was very little visual distinction between the base Boxster and its 'S' counterpart, except that the 'S' had a third, central front air intake. There were different windshield trim, titanium color highlight bars in the front air intakes, and the S badging located on the rear trunk lid. If those were not enough clues, there was also a twin-tailpipe on the 'S' model while the base Boxster had a single tailpipe.

The Boxster could race from zero-to-sixty in 6.6 seconds while the 'S' did it in just 5.3 seconds. The quarter mile was done in 14.6 seconds with the 'S' version doing the same distance in 13.9 seconds.
