With the revival of the roadster in the early 1990’s Porsche decided it was finally time to introduce a new model, something the marque had not done since the ’70s. Rather than design another GT to replace the outgoing 928 and 968, Porsche went with a mid-engined entry-level roadster that would appeal to a wider demographic than the more hard-edged 911. With a 2.5 liter flat-6 and 5-speed manual directing their energies to the rear wheels the Boxster was generally very well received and sold like mad. While admittedly the early Boxster was a bit soft and a bit slow, flaws Porsche would correct a few years later with the Boxster S, it still served its basic purpose of broadening the Porsche audience. The car featured here comes from the first generation: an Arctic Silver 1998 Porsche Boxster, located in Florida, with 56,950 miles.

Mechanically: During my test drive nothing negative was found to report here. Drove like a brand new BOXSTER .

There may be no car in the Porsche range more unloved than the first generation Boxster. Like with the 996, the styling left many Porsche fans feeling cold and also like the 996 the early years had some engine issues. On the plus side, they aren’t very expensive so for those who prefer the styling, or simply would like a 2-seat open-top Porsche at a reasonable price, they can still make for a good option if carefully considered and inspected prior to purchase. At the end of the day, the Boxster is still a mid-engine rear-drive two-seat roadster that allows you to do the shifting yourself. That’s a tough combination of attributes to beat.
