“The Porsche Driving Experience is an opportunity for us to introduce car enthusiasts to Por-sche’s entire sports car range. These cars are exquisite in terms of engineering performance, design and special features that are unique to the Porsche brand. We are happy to give our cus-tomers and other sports car enthusiasts the chance to experience these cars on the track like never before. The Porsche cars will also be on display at the Porsche Centre Showroom on weekdays and in other selected locations.” Chairman of Eurocars (Pvt) Ltd., Arthur Senanayake stated.

Martin Limpert, Managing Director of Porsche Asia Pacific who attended the launch said, “Twenty years after the first Boxster made its debut, Porsche is rebranding its mid-engine roadsters, the two-seat convertibles. The designation for the new generation of models is 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S, which were used in the Porsche 718 mid-engine sports cars that won numerous races in the 50s and 60s such as Targa Florio and Le Mans. The new 718 Boxster comes with 2 litre engine displacement delivering 300 hp while the S version is equipped with 2.5 litre delivering 350 hp. The chassis has been re-engineered and the new model comes with the enhanced Por-sche Communication Management. Porsche is continuing the tradition of four-cylinder flat engines in the historic 718 mid-engine sports cars and at the same time successfully introducing more powerful yet fuel efficient new 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S. The response has been positive both from sports car fans and journalists and we hope to further receive good feedback in Sri Lanka.”

The new Boxster which is named after a combination of the words ‘’boxer’ (flat engine) and “road-ster” allows a significant reduction of up to 13% in fuel consumption and emissions. The 718 Boxster makes a statement in every way. Its exterior includes an athletic silhouette and striking new, optically wider exterior design underlined by re-defined Bi-Xenon headlights, coupled with integrated LED daytime running lights in the front. The Boxster also has three –dimensional tail lights with four-point brake lights and trim strip on the rear end.
