About the Boxster (986)

The launch of the Boxster 986 in 1997 was a true turning point in the history of Porsche. The introduction of a mid-engined two-seater sports car at a more affordable price meant that Porsche began to reach a whole new generation of owners.

With its 3.2 litre six-cylinder boxer engine the Boxster S represented the first major upgrade to the base model in both styling and engine output.

The Boxster (986) range has retained the fascination of the public over the years thanks to it’s blend of performance, balance and handling.
