There was a time that potential Porsche owners wouldn’t even concern themselves with fuel efficiency figures, but nowadays mpg figures are important to any educated car buyer.

The EPA has released its mpg figures for the 2013 Porsche Boxster equipped with the 2.7-liter, flat-six engine with 265-hp. The six-speed manual Boxster gets 20-mpg city, 30-mpg highway, while the seven-speed PDK-equipped model gets a respectable 22-mpg city, 32-mpg highway.

The figures are a noticeable improvement compared to the Boxster’s former 2.9-liter powerplant, which got 20-mpg city, 29-mpg highway for the automatic model and 19-mpg city, 27-mpg highway for the manual.

So those purchasing a 2013 Boxster will not only get 10-hp more in a chassis that is 55 lbs lighter, but will also get improved fuel economy. The EPA has not released figures on the Boxster S model yet, but we expect a similar improvement.
