Porsche 986


986 (1997-2004)

When launched in September 1996, the Porsche Boxster set new performance and safety standards in the open-top Sports Car market segment. The roadster combined the dynamic performance of a Sports Car with unlimited day-to-day usability. A new type of convertible-top kinematic system allowed the electric convertible top to be opened and closed in just 12 seconds. The Boxster stood out from the competition with its mid-engine concept based on a typical Porsche flat-six engine.
