Although the Boxster initially rode on the coattails of the legendary 911 when it debuted two decades ago, Porsche's roadster has since become an icon in its own right. For 2017, Porsche added 718 to its name as a nod to its motorsports pedigree, but otherwise this is still the same recognizable two-seater roadster the Boxster has always been.
