In the late 1990s, Porsche introduced the Boxster, a much needed entry level model for the Porsche brand. The Boxster's mid-frame mounted flat 6 cylinder engine, refined handling, and classic 2 seat convertible design was quickly adopted by Porsche enthusiasts as a true Porsche, befitting a long tradition of pure driving excellence. Given this, the Boxster quickly became a best-seller in an ever-growing field of 2 seat convertibles, despite it's higher price.
Depreciation has put many pre-owned Boxsters squarely within the reach of sports car enthusiasts who may have thought they would never have the opportunity to own a late model Porsche, prior to it's introduction. In short, the Boxster has successfully reinvigorated the Porsche brand, delivering exotic-car performance and driving experience, at an affordable price.
