2013 Porsche Boxster Safety

8.0
Safety
Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the 2013 Porsche Boxster--a common occurrence with small-volume, expensive cars.

Despite the lack of test results, however, Porsche's light and strong chassis in the new 2013 model is likely as tough as any compact roadster, and the standard safety equipment list is comprehensive: anti-lock brakes; traction and stability control; dual front and side airbags, with door-sill side-curtain airbags; and an integral thorax side airbag in the seat bolsters.

Visibility out of the Boxster is generally great, though the rear-quarter view can be compromised for shorter drivers. Porsche doesn't offer a backup camera for the Boxster, but rear parking sensors are available.

A long list of standard safety features and a light, strong aluminum chassis counterbalance the lack of official crash-test results for the 2013 Porsche Boxster.
