Many aspire to be the proud owner of a Porsche sports car, and Porsche helped some realize their dreams when they introduced the Boxster in 1996, as their entry-level offering. The first generation Boxster was a mid-engined two-seat roadster that was the first Porsche since the 550 to be designed as a roadster from the outset. Four generations on, the current 982 generation wears the designation ‘718 Boxster’ and its fixed-head sibling ‘718 Cayman’, the 718 being a reference to Porsche’s 718 race car which won the Targa Florio in 1959 and 1960. Here’s a lovely 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 from Florida as a worthy contender. It’s got just 11,789 miles on the clock.
The Porsche Boxster was introduced in 1996 by the German sports car manufacturer as a model intended to slot into their range below their flagship 911, as a mid-engined two-seat roadster (convertible) offering. When the first generation was introduced in 1996, it replaced the front-engined 968. The Boxster is a sales success story for Porsche to this date and is now on its fourth generation which was introduced in 2016 as the 718 Boxster, along with its fixed-roof sibling the 718 Cayman. In case you are wondering, the name Boxster is an amalgamation of Boxer, which refers to the flat (boxer) engines that power the car, as well as its style as a roadster. This is a fourth-generation 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster that comes from Florida with 33,000 miles on the clock. Two keys are included with the sale, and it is reported to be a fully dealer-maintained car.
Porsche is one of those automobile manufacturers who choose interesting and exotic names for their models. Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne, Taycan and Macan are the current lot. The only exception is their iconic 911. The Porsche Boxster model was initially produced in 1996, and to much of Porsche’s surprise the Boxster reversed the downward trend of the company’s revenue. A fun fact is that Porsche consulted Japanese car maker Toyota on sharing parts among models which contributed to their revenue increase. This is a 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster S from the fourth generation of the model’s lifecycle, with just 9,600 miles on the clock and it comes from North Carolina.
