Porsche beefs up the Boxster
28 March 2006

Porsche has elected to take on the styling houses and released its own SportDesign pack for the Boxster. The kit comprises extra lips on the front spoiler, a redesigned rear spoiler and a modified rear diffuser.

Porsche claims the improvements are both aerodynamic and cosmetic, and states that the reduction in lift at both axles brings no increase in air resistance. The new rear diffuser was apparently influenced by that of the Carrera GT.

Though the pack is on sale worldwide, the only published price is for German customers: 4060 euros (£2800) with a new car or 3422 euros (£2375) plus labour to have it retro-fitted.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
