Porsche Boxster Overview

The Porsche Boxster is classed as a two-seater roadster which is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Porsche. The Roadster has been in production since 1996, and is still in production today in its third generation. The current version of the Boxster is a very classy, modern looking little roadster sports car. In fact this is probably the top of the range when it comes to two-seater roadsters. They look amazing, are very comfortable and high performance vehicles. This car is very well built and handles extremely well. These cars don’t have the same appeal in the UK as the 911 but they are just as well built and well worth considering. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Boxster?

Porsche Boxster History

The first generation 986 (1996-2004) was to introduce a new style of car for Porsche. The 986 Boxster shared a lot of features with the larger 996. This was the first time Porsche would use a mid-engine instead of rear engine. The second generation 987 (2005-2011) was very similar looking to its predecessor, with the changed headlight design being the main difference. The interior received a major change from the previous version and a newer range of engines. The third generation 981 (2012-present) is the current version in production and has a different look from the previous versions to suit the new design language of Porsche. This version is more economical and only available in 2.7 and 3.4L engines.
