Fresh from its public debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show we bring you a series of videos showcasing the new Porsche Boxster. We start above with an official clip featuring Achim Stejskal, Director of the Porsche Museum, who explains a bit about the history of Porsche roadsters and its relevance to the 981 Boxster.
After the break there’s another promo clip before adding two videos from the Geneva stand. We’re big fans of the new Boxster here at AUSmotive, we reckon it looks great, it’s a bit lighter, has a wider track and can lap the NÃ¼rburgring in less than 8 minutes. We reckon those facts and these videos will help you get on board too.
