2011 Porsche Boxster Features

9.0
On Features

The Boxster has Porsche's typically exhaustive options list, but every roadster also comes with all the expected features--unless you're expecting them not to be there.

The Boxster and Boxster S have standard air conditioning, CD player, leather-trimmed seats, and alloy wheels, as well as power windows, locks and mirrors. A power-folding convertible top, keyless entry, and a manual transmission are standard as well. Newly standard for the 2011 model year are Bluetooth and a universal audio interface for music players, like the Apple iPod, that lets the car's audio system controls the player's functions.

The 2011 Porsche Boxster offers plenty of standard features to satisfy, but the extensive options list will enthrall the enthusiast.

The Spyder edition--stripped down to save weight and boost its chances on the track--doesn't have daytime running lights, fog lamps, or the A/C or stereo, and it comes with a manual canopy roof instead of the power-operated one standard on other models.

Options run a huge gamut, from the PDK dual-clutch gearbox, to bigger wheels and tires, to sport seats, to a wind deflector and ventilated seats, to a set of packages that bundle gear into easy-order groups. There's a Design package with 19-inch wheels, blacked-out exhaust tips, and black trim on the mirrors, vents, and interior trim; there's an Infotainment package with Porsche's navigation system, too. Sport Chrono is an option on PDK cars, and Porsche specializes in the custom color selections of your dreams.
