Porsche Boxster 986: Iconic Roadster Evolution
Following the Porsche 968 series, the Boxster came along and delivered on its promise of affordability, classic design, and technology. The name “Boxster” comes from the fact that it was a boxer-engined roadster. The concept car was well-received, with its retro feel and sleek looks which led to its official production in 1996.
Over time, models continued to increase in speed and performance, so the range continued to impress owners with its premium build quality and reliability. The original Boxster had a water-cooled flat-six engine that was boosted from 2.5 liters to 2.7 liters in 1999 and it was around this time that the interior, especially the plastic details, got an upgrade too.
The engine can only be accessed from below the vehicle, a decision that made the car more practical than the 911 since it allowed for a small boot to be added at the rear. In 2000, the Boxster S, (sport), came along and boasted 250 hp with a 6-speed transmission, centrally mounted dual exhaust pipes and an extra radiator.
Aside from the increase in power, one difference between the standard Boxster and the Boxster S is the steering wheel, going from 4 to 3 spokes, matching the sporty wheel found inside the Porsche 996 911.
Porsche’s Boxster is a fun, engaging 2-seater sports car that feels stable on the road, gives drivers a comfortable ride and works well as a daily driver. It delivers precision in relation to the throttle, clutch and brakes, as well as the hydraulically assisted steering system.
The 2004 Boxster 986 acceleration was 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, a quarter-mile in 15.7 seconds, and had a top speed of 158 mph.
