EPA Releases 2013 Porsche Boxster Fuel Economy Ratings

Not only does the 2013 Porsche Boxster’s 2.7-liter flat six  boast more power than its predecessor, we now have official confirmation that it’s also more efficient. The EPA has rated the PDK-equipped version of the new roadster at 22/32 mpg city/highway.

The numbers are a considerable improvement over those of the outgoing Boxster and its 2.9-liter mill. That model achieved 20/29 mpg when equipped with an automatic and 19/27 when fitted with a third pedal.

Despite having a 2.4-inch longer wheel-base and 1.6-inch wider front track, the 2013 Boxster, which rides on a chassis derived from the 991 911, is about 55 lbs lighter.  It also gets 10 more horses for a total of 265 hp. The EPA has yet to release mpg numbers for the 315-hp Boxster S, but we’re guessing it will also be significantly improved.
