Connor Hoffman, who wrote the article for Car and Driver didn't comprehend the original news release by Porsche, which states:

"The Boxster was a true Porsche. At the same time, its centrally installed flat-six engine, which initially had a displacement of 2.5 litres and an output of 150 kW (204 PS), was engineered to meet stricter emissions standards thanks to water cooling, four-valve technology and variable intake timing.
An increase in power and further model enhancements followed soon after. The first 986 Boxster generation received a 2.7-litre engine in 1999, initially with 162 kW (220 PS) and later with 168 kW (228 PS)".

Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Racecar spelled backwards is Racecar
"Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting" ... Steve McQueen as Michael Delaney in "LeMans"
"If you wait, all that happens is that you get older"... Mario Andretti
"Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose" ... Ayrton Senna
At least that's the way the article reads. Cars with PASM are permanently 0.4 inches lower.

Also, "the concept car pictured below" isn't the concept car.

Porsche Museum Heritage Talk with Grant Larson and Horst Marchart: Boxster 25 years.
Towards the end in the Q&A, Grant and Horst are asked which Boxster they would choose today and both said they'd pick the original version (986)! Grant also has a soft spot for the 987 Spyder.
