The car that saved Porsche? That’s an accolade that has been attributed to more than one Porsche, but certainly what can’t be argued with is the fact that the Boxster was the car that propelled Porsche into the modern era, from which it has never looked back. That the Boxster was the right car at the right time also helped. Porsche introduced modern production techniques and even platform and component sharing with the 996. They couldn’t build ’em fast enough, which is great news 20+years on, as the Boxster is a great secondhand buy, as Tim will testify.
