Porsche's new Boxster and Boxster S get tuned engines, suspension and aero kit for added performance capabilities.
The new-generation Porsche Boxster made its debut back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, and since then, the Porsche tuning specialist SpeedArt has been hard at work developing a customization program for the 981-era roadster, the end product of which has now been revealed. Dubbed the SP81-R, the SpeedArt roadster has been upgraded with an aero kit comprised of a new rear wing and diffuser, side skirts and front spoiler for a sporiter look and added downforce.
The demo car has been finished in black and green and fitted with a new suspension and the customer's choice of several lightweight wheel options from LSC Forged Wheels, including the rims pictured here measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. Augmenting performance are two stages of engine remap for the base Boxster and a third for the more powerful Boxster S. The first level adds 20 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque, the second boosts output by 35 hp and 22 lb-ft, and the Boxster S package includes a turbocharger that adds 80 hp for a total of 395. A new exhaust system with sport catalysts and manifolds are also part of the package.
