A lucky German customer is set to receive the milestone 300,000th unit of Porsche’s Boxter and Cayman models that was built ever since the launch. The milestone vehicle – a Boxster Spyder with Platinum Silver metallic finish and Carrera red natural leather interior trim – was built at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen production line.
Porsche is known for offering high-performance sports cars but they’re actually some of the most reliable cars on the market.
They also have the ability to retain their value well over time. Both the Boxster and Cayman were named in the top 10 best vehicles on the US market.
Meanwhile, these models rank second and third in Germany among cars that hold their value the best. It’s likely that the Boxster saved the struggling Porsche when it was presented in 1996.
But it was three years before it was introduced that the concept version of the car was displayed at the Detroit Motor Show.
The car had been based on the classic lines of the 356 and 555 Spyder. Porsche said that the public response has been awesome, prompting it to put the model into production. Porsche attributed its success to its “dynamic lines, outstanding performance and an attractive price.”
