Porsche Boxster Study

At the North American Auto Show in Detroit, a concept sports car at the Porsche stand captivates fans and experts alike in January, 1993. It is dubbed the “Boxster”, combining the words “boxer” for the classic Porsche engine layout and “roadster”. The Boxster is powered by a water-cooled mid-engine. The body of the open two-seater represents a modern interpretation of classic Porsche race car lines, which were realised with the 550 Spyder and the 718 RS 60. Also reminiscent of early motor racing are styling elements like the air inlets in the front, the central exhaust pipe, and the fuel cap on the bonnet. The cockpit is lined in red leather and impresses with intriguing details such as tiny air fans, visible mechanical components and the asymmetric rear-vision mirror.
