Once a cute entry-level sports car, the Porsche Boxster has grown in size, power and price. Unveiled today at the Geneva Motor Show, the third generation Boxster is a potent performer – and looks it.

With styling inspired by the upcoming 918 Spyder, the Boxster is now longer and wider, helping deliver a more refined driving experience and more space inside. The chassis itself is also made entirely of aluminum, helping cut weight.

The standard Boxster gets a down-sized engine to 2.7-liters (200 cc smaller), though power is up to 265 hp and Porsche claims a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds. Boxster S models will get a much larger 3.4-liter flat-six making 315 hp (a slight 5 hp increase), with a 4.7 second sprint to 60 mph. A six-speed manual is standard, with an optional 7-speed PDK dual clutch unit. Also optional is a Sport Chrono Package with Dynamic Transmission Mounts and a Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) mechanical differential.

Look for the 2013 Boxster to arrive in the US this summer, starting at $49,500 and the Boxster S at $60,900.
