Drive a Porsche Boxster S near me
Porsche’s first car to be originally designed as a roadster since their 914 model in 1969, and released at the same time as their 986 model, the Porsche Boxster S was first introduced to the market in 1996, based heavily on design motifs from the Boxster Concept car they had produced three years before in 1993.
The particular model of this convertible sports car we have available to book for driving experiences here on TrackDays is a slightly later iteration of the original 1996 model from 2000, which introduces a 3.4 litre mid-engine, which offers out 315 bhp to help it cruise from 0 - 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, achieving top speeds in excess of 173 mph.
What this mid-engine placing does, as you’ll discover when you take to the wheel on it for the first time, is that it provides a low centre of gravity, with near accurate weight distribution and neutral handling, offering one of the smoothest rides possible from a sports car of this calibre.
Cool Facts About the Porsche Boxster S
Produced at their factory in Stuttgart, Germany, the Boxster S proved a bestseller from the off for Porsche. It’s best performing year for sales during the first generation run of models was by far 2001, when over 10,466 units in Europe alone were sold, with another 12,278 sold in the North American market.
Motorsport fans in the UK will also recognise a track modified variant of the Boxster S, as they are used in the BRSCC Porsche Championship and Porsche Club Championship series, the latter of which was founded in 1991 by Jeff May of the Porsche Racing Drivers Association.
