Consumer Guide



The 2012 Porsche Boxster, like many other pricey sports cars, hasn't been safety tested by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

Despite the lack of official testing, the Boxster comes with enough standard safety equipment to put any buyer at ease: anti-lock brakes, traction control, and stability control are all included; dual front and side airbags are standard; and the side airbags pop up from the door sills to function as side-curtain airbags.

If you're looking for high-tech safety gadgets, however, you'll have to look elsewhere, as there are no upgrades to rearview cameras, adaptive cruise control, or lane-departure warning systems. Available parking sensors can make it easier to park the Boxster with its somewhat compromised rear-quarter visibility.

Conclusion

The 2012 Porsche Boxster hasn't been crash-tested, but a strong standard safety feature sheet means it should be safe in the event of an accident.

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.
