Porsche Centre Silverstone customers Stuart and Pam bought their 981 Boxster in March 2018. They recently decided to take an European road trip through the scenic landscapes of France, Austria and Italy.
Stuart and Pam shared their 15 day journey log with us, along with a selection of stunning photographs of their Boxster in the snowy Alps.
The journey started with a 400 mile trip to Eastern France, before heading into Austria. They then battled the elements over the Brenner Pass into Italy, enjoying the stunning vistas of the Italian Lakes.
The return leg of their journey saw them departing from a lakeside resort west of Turin and heading back through France. The Boxster was certainly put through its paces along the twisting tarmac and hairpin bends of the French Alpine roads.
To top off the whole adventure, their final day was a 130-mile trip to the Eurotunnel at Calais, followed by another 150 miles to home. Their 15-day adventure saw them covering a total of 2,377 miles, with an impressive average of 36.13 mpg from the Boxster’s flat 6 engine.
When asked how the Boxster performed over the entire journey, Stuart replied “Faultlessly! Through a mixture of driving roads and conditions the car was sure-footed and made for an easy and enjoyable holiday.”
Responding to a question on what he likes most about his Boxster, Stuart commented "That's a difficult question because everything is good, and just works! Pam likes the speed and ease of closing the hood when necessary.”

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
