2013 Porsche Boxster: 22/32 mpg (PDK); 20/30 mpg (manual)
2013 Porsche Boxster S: 21/30 mpg (PDK); 20/28 (manual)
The 2013 Porsche Boxster is no Prius C, to be sure, but it's a relative fuel miser compared to many cars with similar power and performance.
The Boxster rates 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the PDK seven-speed transmission, and 20/30 mpg city/highway with the six-speed manual. For the extra power of the S, you'll lose 1 mpg in the city with the PDK, and 2 mpg on the highway with either transmission.
In real-world driving with the Boxster, we've managed mileage numbers in the low 20s when not sparing any exuberance; practically speaking it's one of the more efficient true sports cars—especially when you could six-cylinder models.
It's no hybrid, but the sport and power of the 2013 Porsche Boxster come at surprisingly little expense at the pump.
