Launched on a welcoming public in 1995, the mid-engined two-seater Boxster was the affordable â€˜realâ€™ Porsche that so many had been waiting for. Developed by Porsche in response to a show-stealing Audi concept car in the mid-nineties, the Boxster drew heavily on Porsche design heritage. This made it a strong contender in terms of style to its German rivals.
The Boxster sold well from its launch, and it remains one of the most popular cars in its category today. Gavin Farmerâ€™s history of the car looks at the genesis and development in all its versions. It examines Porsche tuners and modification kits, and offers advice on buying and running a Boxster.
