Porsche Is Getting Very Serious About The Porsche Boxster Spyder

With the pre-718 Porsche Boxster Spyder and Cayman GT4, Porsche showed that they were getting more serious about their non-911 sports cars. At the time the Cayman sat above the Boxster in the model lineup. With the introduction of the 718 Boxster and Cayman the Boxster moved slightly ahead of the Cayman in the pecking order costing a bit more just as the 911 Cabriolet sits above the Carrera.

Project Porsche Boxster R – Power Plant Options

By   August 13, 2017

Project Porsche Boxster R

While we haven’t provided any updates on Project Boxster R in a few weeks we are hard at work getting the parts we will need and deciding on the direction of the build. Topics, such as do we keep the convertible top and if we remove it how do we go about saving weight and keep the car safe for road use are top of mind. One of the most debated topics is how to go about adding more power to our 986 Boxster.

The early Porsche Boxster is a great handling package and most of the time its 2.5-liter flat-six is plenty to power the 2,822 lb. roadster. However with only 201 horses, at times it does feel like it could use about 100 more. The chassis has proven it can handle more power and with proper suspension and brake upgrades it will be more than ready. The big question is how do we go about adding power and just how much is enough.

Project Porsche Boxster R – Easy Weight Reduction

Project Porsche Boxster R

Project Porsche Boxster R

A few weeks ago we told you about our latest project, Porsche Boxster R. The idea is to take an early 986 generation Boxster and transform it into a harder core machine in the vein of the 911 R, GT3 and Cayman GT4. In doing so we want to get an idea of what it would cost to build the ultimate 986 Boxster.

You can read more about the idea behind Porsche Boxster R here.

Introducing Project Porsche Boxster R

By   May 30, 2017

986 Porsche Boxster R

The 986 Porsche Boxster is perhaps the best value in the used Porsche Market. The affordable mid-engined sports car can be had for as little as $5,000 for and example in good running condition. Because of the low cost of entry and the relatively large amount of early Boxsters produced makes them a perfect candidate as a project car.

With that knowledge we are introducing our 986 generation Porsche Boxster R project. The concepr for the project will follow the example of the new 911 R and Cayman GT4 / Boxster Spyder. The idea is to build something that could have come from the factory had a hard core road version of the Boxster been produced in the early Boxster years.

You can skip to our first article of the project, simple weight reduction, here.

How To Own A New Porsche 718 Boxster Or 718 Cayman For Free

By   January 16, 2017

Porsche 718 Cayman

Porsche 718 Boxster

Do you have your eye on a new Porsche 718 Boxster or 718 Cayman, but aren’t able to afford one? What if the car literally paid for itself? We recently saw an article on The Drive that showed how to get a free Tesla Model S. This opened our eyes to an entirely different way of thinking.

Here is how you can own a Porsche 718 Cayman or Boxster for free. We’ll use the 718 Boxster S for our example as it is the most expensive of the current Boxster / Cayman lineup (outside of the sold out Boxster Spyder / Cayman GT4). This technique can be used for just about any car, but one that out the door costs under $90,000 is the best way to guarantee that you can get back the monthly payment.
