The Boxter may be a mid-engined roadster but it was to share some of its development platform with the new 911. There are those who regard the Boxter as even more dynamically balanced than the 911 and they are not far wrong. However the 911’s image is far too strong and it was unquestionably the more desirable model and Porsche rightly backed this horse.
