The sDrive28i has a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, sDrive35i has a 3.0 liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine, and sDrive35iS is a more powerful version of 3.0 turbocharged six-cylinder engine and is only available with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
- 2013 Porsche Boxster S
Porsche Boxster S was not a complete redesign, as Porsche continued to upgrade the roadster every year since the introduction of the car in 1997. The Boxster S is 1.3 inches longer than the predecessor, with a 2.4 inches longer wheelbase. Porsche increased the torsional rigidity of the car by 40 percent, and its center of gravity is reduced to nearly a quarter of an inch to improve handling and grip. Boxster S has a 3.4 L flat-six engine with the peak torque of 266 lb-ft. The intake and exhaust modifications in Boxster S increase the power to 315 hp at 6700 rpm.

The Gallardo comes with a 5 liter 90 degree V10 engine, with two transmission options: six-speed manual transmission and advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled semi-automatic robotized manual transmission. A fine blend of German engineering and Italian style and flair, the Gallardo is another worthy consideration when looking to buy salvage cars.
- Ferrari 458 Spider
Ferrari 458 Spider has a powerful 562 hp V-8 engine with seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Spider not only looks like a race car, but actually rides on an “F1 inspired” suspension system.
