Expert Quotes:

2011 Porsche Boxster, Boxster Spyder: 19/27 mpg (manual); 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)
EPA

2011 Porsche Boxster S: 19/26 mpg (manual); 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)
EPA




The Porsche Boxster will delight owners in lots of illicit ways, but the pleasures of visiting the gas station are totally legit.

The Boxster's one of the few sportscars we can think of with such a high fuel-economy rating. In either the base Boxster, or in the Boxster Spyder, the EPA rates the Porsche convertible at 20/29 mpg when it's fitted with the PDK dual-clutch transmission (which the EPA thinks is an automatic). With the manual gearbox, it's still scored at 19/27 mpg--close to the numbers you'd get in a full-size sedan like a Buick LaCrosse, and about double what you'd see in a Lamborghini Gallardo.

Stepping into the Boxster S doesn't sacrifice that much more fuel. The S gets 19/26 mpg from the EPA when it's equipped with the manual shifter, and 20/29 mpg with the PDK.

 

Conclusion

Few sportscars can claim the high gas-mileage numbers earned by the Porsche Boxster.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
