Porsche 986/987/981 Boxster (1996/2012)

Estimated Value: $70,000-$90,000
Units Built: 500 for the 2008 GTS RS
Speed: 165 mph

The 1997 Boxer was inspired by the lines of the 550 Porsche Spyder of the early 1950s. For the next decade, the 986 Boxster continued to see many design and engine changes, including an “S” model. In 2005, an all-new 987 model debuted, and in 2008 Porsche introduced two limited-edition Porsche Spyders as the GTS RS (Orange/Black) and the RS 60 Spyder (Silver/Red). In 2012, Porsche announced the 981 model Boxster.

“The new Boxster and ‘S’ model…will become the new entry-level Porsches, with an MSRP of $49,500 and $60,900, respectively, before add-ons,” Raskin said.
