Porsche Boxster (type 987)
Porsche Boxster (type 987)

In the 2005 model year, Porsche expanded the Boxster model series to include the type 987 Boxster. Visually, the new model differs greatly from its predecessors with newly designed, oval headlights and 17-inch aluminum wheels instead of 16-inch aluminum wheels on the Boxster and 18-inch aluminum wheels instead of 17-inch aluminum wheels on the Boxster S. The electric convertible top of the new Boxster can now be opened and closed at a speed of up to 50 km/h. In the 2007 model year, the rated power of the two Boxster models would be raised to the same level as the Cayman models.
