Expert Quotes:

2012 Porsche Boxster, Boxster Spyder: 19/27 mpg (manual); 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)
EPA

2012 Porsche Boxster S: 19/26 mpg (manual); 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)
EPA




There are many joys to be had at the wheel of the Porsche Boxster, and the joy of refueling will likely be one of them.

It's not precisely inefficient, but for its size and power output, it's not forest-green, either. Rated by the EPA at 20/29 mpg city/highway with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and 19/27 mpg with the manual, the base Boxster does well on the highway but suffers around town. Opt for the punchier Boxster S and you'll see the EPA ratings hold steady in the PDK model at 20/20 mpg city/highway, but drop slightly to 19/26 mpg with the manual.

The Boxster Spyder rates the same again in PDK trim, at 20/29 mpg, but improves on the Boxster S's score to return to 19/27 mpg city/highway.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Porsche Boxster is one of the more fuel-efficient options in the high-performance sport class, but it's no Prius.

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.
