During its hibernation period, I have been checking on it every so often in the garage and on the odd occasion, have been unable to resist a quick rub down with polish.
Badged the 718, a new generation of the Porsche Boxster calls upon the nostalgia of Porsche Motorsport. 718 is the designation that was given to the four-cylinder, mid-engine Porsche sports cars that won several races in the 1950s and 1960s.
The 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S are priced from £41,739 and £50,695, respectively and are available to order now from your Official Porsche Centre in the UK and Ireland. First customer deliveries will be in Spring 2016.
