The Porsche Boxster was first unveiled in 1996, as an unique performance roadster concept with a distinctive mid-mounted boxer engine. The 2015 Porsche Boxster continues the boxer engine legacy, combining new lightweight construction with Porsche’s renowned agility and cornering dynamics. Sprinting from 0-62 mph in 5.8 seconds, the Boxster handles hairpin turns with ease, proving that fun is the main objective of this sports car. A new version of thermal management assists in reducing friction and optimizing efficiency. For those who want a more responsive driving experience, select the “Sport” button on the center console—engine dynamics will tune for true performance driving.
The Boxster’s performance is only matched by its sleek style. Curving lines rise to a fully electric convertible rooftop, which, when lowered, takes your driving experience from “dynamic” to “truly exceptional.” Cruising down the highway with the wind in your hair, it’s not hard to see why the Boxster is one of Porsche’s most popular models.
The interior is similarly outfitted with dynamic driving in mind. With all controls close to hand, the cockpit is designed for high performance driving, without sacrificing comfort. Elegant leather and silver-toned detailing finish off this stylishly appointed interior.

After a 16 year hiatus, Porsche will once again compete in the top category of what is certainly the world’s toughest car race. In Le Mans, France starting at 3:00 pm on June 14, 2014 Porsche’s attempt to return to glory will begin. Le Mans is a 24 hour long race that consists of only the world’s finest and fastest car, drivers and teams. With 56 cars in the field and over a quarter million spectators in the grand stands Le Mans has been known around the globe by all speed enthusiasts as the premier race since 1923. When it comes to top class automotive engineering, performance and innovation there is no other race that comes close to Le Mans. This is the race where legends are made; the difference between agony and ecstasy is measured in millimeter and milliseconds.
Porsche is a record holder at Le Mans with 16 overall victories, the first in 1970 and the last in 1988 along with being the first to ever win with a turbo in 1976. Yet this year the legendary sports car manufacturer has no experience to benefit from due to its absence over the past 16 Le Mans. For the first year of the LMP1 project the target is to get one of the fast Porsche 919 Hybrids to the finish line at the marathon. The Porsche team consists of 86 members and each of them known the tradition of excellence that they place on their shoulders once they put on the Porsche crest.
Porsche is fielding its most innovative prototypes at the 82nd 24 hours of Le Mans. The two Porsche 919 Hybrid cars with start numbers 14 and 20 will be driven by two trios of drivers: Romain Dumas (France), Neel Jani (Switzerland), Marc Lieb (Germany) and Timo Bernhard (Germany), Brendon Hartley (New Zealand), Mark Webber (Australia). These six world-class drivers have between them a total of 37 appearances at Le Mans.
With Le Mans being the apex of automotive creativity and competition there are some new regulations this year. These new guidelines call for a totally new LMP1 car with an enclosed roof and increased visibility zones to improve the safety of the driver. Other new regulations aim to reduce fuel consumption by 30% in the last 21 years. They hope to accomplish this monumental feat by having all the manufactures utilize hybrid technology through both the recovery of kinetic energy through state of the art breaking systems and the reuse of exhaust from the turbo charger.
As the Porsche team hits the track in hope regain its status as a Le Mans powerhouse you can show your support for the team by putting the crest on your chest as well. Park Place Porsche has a huge selection of Porsche accessories and clothing items available to let every race fan show their support.
If the sports car purist in you is screaming to get behind the wheel of a machine meant for speed and hugging curves, but your practical side says buying a two seated speed machine is just not a smart move – well then you are going to be just fine. With the release of Porsche’s newest vehicle, the Porsche Macan, your inner speed demon and responsible parent sides can find a common ground in the driver’s seat of this amazing new machine. The Macan is the new brother of its enormously successful predecessor the Cayenne. Although the Macan is the new kid on the block, and definitely the smaller member of the family when it comes to cabin size, it still packs a punch the way only a SUV by Porsche can.
The Macan S comes barreling in with a 340-hp, 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed transmission to ensure that even though there might be a back seat full of happy meals and soccer equipment, you still feel the power of driving a Porsche. The Macan is the perfect fusion of performance and utility: it maintains the essence of a sport car while not skimping on the comfort or function of an SUV. And with a base asking price just south of $50,000, this perfect package is also surprisingly affordable.
