Porsche Boxster S ~ 2005-2007
The interior was all-new, with a neater instrument binnacle, round air vents, and an angular centre console that was similar to that in the 997-model 911. The three-spoke steering wheel was also not unlike the 911 item.
The engine remained essentially the same 3.2-litre unit from the previous Boxster S, but power increased by 20bhp to 280bhp.
PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) became an option, allowing the choice of two grades of damper firmness. Another new option was the Porsche Chrono Package, which gave a modified engine map and a sophisticated stopwatch system.
Also optional for the first time on a Boxster was PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes), which gave 350mm lightweight ceramic brake discs and trademark yellow calipers.
