That message is delivered well in this new video from Porsche, that features rare archival footage of vintage Porsches in competition. The legendary Porsche 550 Spyder features prominently in the video, as Porsche has worked hard over the years to link the 550 to the Boxster.
We’re not sure that’s giving the Boxster its due, as the car is more than capable of standing on its own, outside the shadow of its grandfather. The 2013 Boxster, due in North American showrooms soon, looks to be even more impressive than the model it replaces.
It’s grown in size while losing weight and gained power while increasing fuel economy. Sure, the base price has increased by $1,400, but so have the car’s capabilities. If you’re in the market for an open-top sports car, we say the new Boxster and Boxster S are well worth your consideration.
