From September 1996, the Porsche Boxster set a new benchmark in performance and safety in the opentop sports car segment.

 The roadster combined the exceptional driving dynamics of a sports car with unrestricted everyday practicality.
 An innovative kinematic system enabled the electrically powered roof to open and close in just 12 seconds – an unrivalled feat.
 The Boxster distinguished itself from its fiercest competitors with its midengined concept and typical Porsche sixcylinder boxer engine.

 Production period: 1997 – 2004.  Number of examples produced: 164,874
