Premiere: 1993 January 6 at NAIAS North American International Auto Show in Detroit
Under head of Style Porsche, Harm Lagaay, different versions of the Boxster concept car were created by designers Grant Larson, Pinky Lai, Matthias Kulla, Stephen Murkett and Wolfgang Möbius.
By the end of 1992, the Boxster concept car was finished down to the details. It was introduced to the public at the Detroit auto show in January 1993. It had the design level and finish of a very high end car while it was presented as a very affordable future model. Customers were ready to order the car immediately.
While the Boxster concept car was simply amazing, it was a concept car and that meant only the general idea was carried over to the production model that was launched in 1996.
