    The world is undergoing a serious financial crisis. The car industry has not been spared as evident in the recent revelation that even luxury carmaker Porsche has experienced a decrease in sales. Porsche officially revealed in statement that they have been having a hard time keeping up their sales since March. Also earlier this year, they have already experienced 27% decrease in their sales.

    Among the wide array of Porsche models, the Boxster was hit by nearly 60% decrease in sales despite the fact that it has been remodeled recently.

    In order to remedy the damage and improve sales, Porsche is planning to make a cheaper base model for the Boxster. If the reports push through, new Boxster would get the same Audi TTS engine.

    The Boxter S made its global debut during the November L.A. Auto Show. A recent test drive in the Willow Springs Race Track convinced car experts that the Boxter S is at its best when it comes to its purpose—be lightning fast on the road.

    It flies. Not. But it is really quick powered by its 3.4L 9A1 engine that outputs 310 horsepower with a torque of 265 lb-ft. The automatic seven speed transmission paired with the engine brings the brute force to reality as you will notice how things along the track go a bit blurry.

    The Boxter S is a beast that can be tamed on the race way. This is attributed to the excellent strut suspension from Porsche MacPherson and the Stability Management 8.0 that controls the wheel spin.
