The rebranded Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S sport more powerful new four-cylinder engines, and significant revisions both outside and in.
However, Australian buyers will pay steeper prices for the privilege when the range launches in mid-2016. The entry prices are up by between $8400 and $12,300.
As we already knew, the headline news is the fitment of two new mid-mounted flat-four turbo engines which, it turns out, offer significantly more power and greater economy than the flat-sixes they replace.
The addition of forced-induction brings the Boxster (and will soon bring the MY16 Cayman coupe) into line with the new 911 range.
