The Boxster was Porsche’s first road vehicle to be originally designed as a roadster since the 550 Spyder from the 1950s. Making its world debut in 1996, the name Boxster is a combination of the words that conceptually define this car– “boxer” for its horizontally opposed engine and “roadster” for its two-seater, convertible configuration. Thanks to a mid-engine layout, the Boxster and its hardtop sibling, the Cayman are said to deliver near-perfect balanced handling that many consider superior to the iconic Porsche 911. While Porsche’s sport models are capable of delivering some of the purest driving experiences on the planet, at the end of the day it comes down to personal preference.
