The 2013 Porsche Boxster offers more standard equipment than before despite weighing slightly less; and what you get, looking at convenience features, is surprisingly close to that of comfort-oriented luxury sedans.
Even the base spec of the Boxster includes driver and passenger electric backrest adjustment; rain-sensing wipers; heated exterior mirrors; ambient lighting; power-operated soft top roof; cruise control; a HomeLink garage-door opener; and Bluetooth hands-free phone integration. There's no app integration for the Boxster's infotainment system, but it does include SiriusXM satellite radio; Bluetooth audio streaming; and a USB port for iPod control.
Optional extras are plentiful but can drive the cost up by $20k or more. They include a Bose surround sound system; a 7-inch touchscreen navigation system and infotainment center; a range of sport steering wheels and seats; leather interior upgrade package; and a range of other convenience upgrades.
