When the Porsche Boxster was first sold for the 1997 model year, it had a base MSRP of $39,980. That was for the base level trim and options could quickly make that price climb. At the time the base 993 generation Porsche 911 Carrera started at about $73,000.
But what if the Boxster had entered the market at a higher price than the 911? The fact is, it almost did.
This time we have a beautiful 993 generation Porsche 911 sent to us by its owner, Julian. The 1995 supercharged air-cooled outlaw has been Julian’s daily driver for 23 years now. Based on these pictures she is very well taken care of.
I was recently approached by a coworker asking if I knew if a taller person can drive a Porsche 356 comfortably. He is about 6’4” tall and enjoys motorcycles and wants to get into sports cars. He is hoping to purchase a classic 356 coupe.
He mentioned that he wasn’t sure if such a small car would fit him. He knows that I’ve had the chance to drive all of Porsche’s modern sports car lineup and that my daily driver is an early Porsche Boxster. His opinion of the Boxster is that he definitely couldn’t fit into it, but this is all based on the outside appearance and not sitting inside.
