First introduced in 1996 as the company’s entry-levelsports car, the Porsche Boxster is now in its third generation, which was launched in 2012. Redesigned to include styling cues from the 911 and 918 Spyder, the third-gen Boxster also received a new, more rigid chassis, revised engine, and a small weight reduction compared to its predecessor. The engine lineup included three flat-six units at first, but this changed in 2016 when a comprehensive facelift replaced them with smaller, turbocharged flat-four powerplants. The update also brought a new name, with the “718” denomination added to the “Boxster” badge as a tribute to Porsche iconic race car from the late 1950s.

The models in question are the GTS and the Spyder, and the former has already been spotted testing on public roads.
