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.

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.
