New Porsche Boxster S Laps the Nurburgring in 7:58


The all-new Porsche Boxster S is certainly quite something.

Without a doubt, the all-new Porsche Boxster is an improvement in the appearance department over its predecessor. At the same time, its 911 big brother is not just a design improvement, but also a performance one as well over the outgoing 997 generation. So the question now is whether the new Boxster has also made a step forward in its performance? According to a recent report, the 2013 Boxster S lapped the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes, 58 seconds.

All told, that's only 18 seconds slower than the new 911, which did it in 7:40. The previous Boxster S did this task in 8:10. For comparison, the new Boxster lapped the Nurburgring faster than the V8-powered C63 AMG Coupe (8:01) and the Corvette C6 (7:59). Powered by a 3.4-liter flat-six with 315hp, the Boxster S can go from 0 to 62 mph in an impressive 4.8 seconds and has a top speed of 173 mph. Automobile Magazine has reported that they contacted Porsche to confirm this time. They did, however, they didn't state whether the test car was wearing stock tires.
