An updated version of the current Boxster will go on sale later this year, with the lightweight Club Sport-esque car to follow in 2016. The Club Sport name was most recently made famous on a lightened version of the 1993 Porsche 968. Such were its talents, it ranked fiftieth in our 100 greatest drivers’ cars countdown.
