When it debuted for the 1997 model year, the Porsche Boxster ushered in an era of the more affordable sports car, not to mention the more affordable Porsche. Featuring a finely balanced midengine layout, keenly responsive handling and steering, and the performance of a flat-6 engine, the Boxster quickly became one of the best-selling sports cars on the road.
Now in its third generation, the Boxster formula remains the same, yet Porsche has made evolutionary changes to better compete against its recently redesigned rivals. Comfort, improved build quality and an increased number of convenience features all make the Boxster considerably better than before. If you can swing a sometimes pricey bottom line, there’s no more compelling choice for a sports car, new or used.
