The Porsche Boxster has come a very long way. The early 986 generation car featured a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated flat-six pumping out 201 horsepower. 0-60 mph was a claimed 6.7 seconds by Porsche, but multiple magazines of the time managed times of 6 seconds flat. At the time the Boxster was the entry level Porsche with a large horsepower gap between the Boxster and the 911 to make sure the mid-engined Boxster didn’t step on the 911’s toes.
Fast forward to today and the the 718 Boxster is no longer the entry level model (that now belongs to the Cayman) and the base Boxster is able to launch from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The pinnacle of the 718 lineup (at least until a new 718 Boxster Spyder is released) is the Porsche 718 Boxster GTS and this makes a huge jump in both performance and price over the base model.
Do you recall when the 987 generation of the Porsche Boxster Spyder was released? The press went completely crazy for the lightweight version of the roadster.
The Spyder shaved its weight down to what the original 986 weighted. That’s about 200 pounds less than the 987 S model. It received a small power bump of 10 horsepower over the S. With just these small changes it is how they work together to offer an invigorating driving experience perfect for the track or a back road.
The 986 generation of the Porsche Boxster is currently the best value in the sports car market. You can currently find early examples in running condition for as low as $5,000, however between $6,000 and $10,000 will purchase a better maintained low mileage vehicle.
With such a low price of entry the question turns to how much does it cost to keep one on the road?
When you drive a sports car you expect to feel every bump in the steering wheel and your buttocks. However, there is a point where the wheel vibration is just too much.
When this happens the cause can be a number of things and some of them are more difficult than others to fix. The issue could be from worn ball joints or a bent tie-rod.
