Facts about Porsche Boxster
The Porsche Boxster is proof that adversity can breed success. First launched in 1997, a very troubled period in Porsche's history, the Boxster was an instant hit with both the press and public.
When the Porsche Boxster Convertible first hit the market it generated plenty of comments from Porsche enthusiasts regarding Its "Boy Scout tent" like canvass roof but since Porsche explained it was an homage to the iconic 550 Spyder the fans loved it. Today the roof has evolved and is no longer tent like.
