Thread: 25th anniversary Porsche Boxster

  1. #1

    25th anniversary Porsche Boxster

    Saw this today. https://postimg.cc/xq8b3Nky
    Think it looks fabulous. Iím old enough to remember the original
    Anyone drive a new Boxster .?

    Iíve still got a low mileage 986S tucked away somewhere, and have had numerous drives in each future iteration. The Anniversary model looks great, but Iím not loving the colour of the wheels.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Kaspersky warned of threats on that page. I have a 981 Boxster, last of the 6 cyl but now Porsche have seen sense with the GTS 4.0 I may order one this year. Waiting to see how the Macan S pans out as an everyday car before deciding.

    Think the wheels look really retro. It has the same 4l engine as the gts as well.
    1250 only to be built worldwide.

    Indeed, I’ve always felt they should be almost base specification to give a back-to-basics top-down sensory overload.

    Ideally, I think thatís the way forward.

    Not trying to be controversial but I always thought that the Boxster looked totally underwhelming for a Porsche - like a modern day 924. The Cayman is what it should have looked like.

    As a current ownership prospect, Iíd actually prefer a Cayman. At least I have a removable hard top on mine, so can pretend in winter :)

    Wonder if a removable hard top is available for the boxster ? Best of both worlds

    Certainly not the ones I’ve seen!! Doesn’t make a Boxster look like a Cayman!

    The car that saved Porsche. I do like the retro look.

    Still happy with my 964 though. The last of the "old gang".

    Hard to improve on this i think, but then I am biased. The anniversary one is a great colour aside from the golden parts that just donít work for me, at all.

    Thanks, 3.4L - quite literally the most fun / complete car I have owned, plus I think it looks great from all angles.

    I have to agree with you there. What model do you have?

    18 years ago I had a 964 ruf biturbo. Unfortunately sold it (I'm a stupid idiot). Nowadays just an ordinary C4.

    Dream car would be the g wtl.
