Redesigned and more powerful for 2005, the base Porsche Boxster mid-engined roadster was powered by a 2.7-liter, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that produced 240 horsepower. The engine was located behind the passenger compartment but ahead of the rear axle, hence the mid-engine designation (one of the few such vehicles in the country).
The base Boxster came with a tighter, more precise five-speed manual transmission as standard equipment. A five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, with a gate for manual shifting, was available as an option.
Standard features for the Boxster included air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power door locks, leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a tilt/telescoping column, a trip computer, power heated exterior mirrors, an anti-theft alarm system, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
Anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, front fog lights, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch wheels were also part of the package.
In addition, the Boxster was equipped with a lightweight, sound-insulating convertible top with a heated glass rear window.
Drivers found a lot to like and very little to dislike about the 2005 Boxster. Handling, power, styling, interior appointments, clever storage spaces, the improved shifter, a tigher suspension, and even fuel economy were all praised by drivers. The stereo system and vision out the rear with the top up were among the improvements suggested by drivers.

Redesigned and more powerful for 2005, the Porsche Boxster S mid-engined roadster was powered by a 3.2-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that produced 280 horsepower (up 22 horsepower from the previous year). The engine was located behind the passenger compartment but ahead of the rear axle, hence the mid-engine designation (one of the few such vehicles in the country).
The Boxster S came with a six-speed manual transmission that was tighter and more precise than the previous year's transmission. A five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, with a gate for manual shifting, was available as an option for both models.
Standard features for the Boxster S included air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power door locks, leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a tilt/telescoping column, a trip computer, power heated exterior mirrors, an anti-theft alarm system, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
Anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, front fog lights, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch wheels were also part of the package.
In addition, the Boxster S was equipped with a lightweight, sound-insulating convertible top with a heated glass rear window.
Drivers found a lot to like and very little to dislike about the 2005 Boxster S. Handling, power, styling, interior appointments, clever storage spaces, the improved shifter, a tigher suspension, and even fuel economy were all praised by drivers. The stereo system and vision out the rear with the top up were among the improvements suggested by drivers.
