A leaked image is showing us that the new Porsche Boxter S apparently lapped the Nurburgring track in just 7 minutes and 58 seconds, making it faster than a Chevrolet Corvette.
After being officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the new Porsche Boxter S is once again highlighted, this time with an image leaked on the internet from a press conference which is indicating that the 2013 Boxter S has lapped the Nurburgring track in just 7 minutes and 58 seconds, faster than models like the previous Porsche Boxter S, the Cadillac CTS-V or even the Chevrolet Corvette, but there is no official word from the German based automaker on this just yet.
As a reminder, the all-new Porsche Boxter S is powered by a 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 311 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 360 Nm (265 lb-ft). Porsche says that the 2013 Boxter S can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds before hitting a top speed of 279 km/h when the sports car is being equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed PDK double clutch is also available, but as an option. The new Boxter S will have a starting price of 48,291 euros in Germany, when it will be launched on the 14th of April 2012, while in early summer, when it will go over-seas, the model will cost 49,500 euros.
