The Porsche Boxster is a well balanced mid-engined sports car. It now sits just above the 718 Cayman in the model lineup, but was held back as the entry level vehicle for much of its production. The seductive lines of the roadster harken back to the legendary 550 Spyder and the 718 RSK Spyder that followed it.
The Boxster incorporates styling that looks like a Porsche with its arched fenders and low ride. The earliest 986 generation cars had a front end that looked exactly like the 996 generation 911, except for the bumper styling.
People either love or hate the Porsche Boxster. Many love its comparatively affordable price compared to a 911 (although still not inexpensive). The latest 718 Boxster starts at $57,400, but prices can quickly go over $80,000 with options for the non-S model. A well optioned Boxster S can cost over $100,000. For this you get a quick roadster that handles like little else on the road.
