It likely can, but I prefer connecting directly to the battery terminals. I have a CTek charger and an adapter cable attached to the battery cable ends. Very plug & play, keep the connector tucked between the wiper tray and frunk lid.

Connect it to the lighter, the car was designed to work that way.

+1, easy and clean. But the lighter method works too.

I found a Sears branded charger/ maintainer at a garage sale for ten bucks . Included was the cigarette lighter adapter . I have been using it on the Boxster for six months now works great .
