Boxing clever

Let’s be honest, 2021 hasn’t been a year for celebration (you don’t need us to fill-in the details), but there are some very notable anniversaries to celebrate this year. Did you know the Jaguar C-Type is 70 years old? And the E-Type only a decade younger? The DeLorean DMC-12 is 40 this year; and every 70s kid’s bedroom poster car, the Lamborghini Countach, is – staggeringly, given its science fiction-movie looks – 50 years young!

Of course, there are plenty of other notable milestones: not least of which is our own 30th anniversary! Yes, we have been trading since 1991 – that’s the same year Street Fighter II hit the arcades, Arnold Schwarzenegger made his second appearance as the Terminator, and the anthem for Generation X, Smells Like Teen Spirit, was released.

There is another big anniversary this year that we must mention: the 25th anniversary of the Porsche Boxster. First introduced to the public as the 993 coupé concept at the 1993 Detroit Motorshow, it was another three years before buyers could get their driving gloves on a production version. 

In the early 90s, Porsche was struggling with its product ranges. Reactions had been poor, the ranges were expensive to produce, and sold too poorly to guarantee the company’s future in the fast-moving auto markets. In 1991, Porsche’s model lineup comprised only three cars; the 911 (964), still air-cooled; the 928, originally intended to replace the 911; and the 944, based on the old 924 of ’76.

Now with a new CEO, but an ageing  and dating lineup, and desperately trying to turn its finances around, Porsche took some advice from Toyota – a company that had previously offered to purchase Porsche. Toyota gave them the perfect idea: create a cheaper sportscar using 911 parts. This would have been almost impossible to achieve if Porsche hadn't had a secret up its sleeve: a new water-cooled engine being developed for the next 911 (996).

With Porsche’s typical penchant for numerical nomenclature, the first generation Boxster was designated as the 986. It was powered by a 2.5-litre flat-six, good for a 6.7sec, 0-60mph dash, and with a top speed of 149mph. The car was loved by the press and public alike: agile, fun, and surprisingly practical, and with Porsche’s impressive quality.

The 998 Series 1996-2004, Brian Long)

Design-wise, the Boxster didn’t strive to be different to the 911; this was no 928 or 968. Taking inspiration from its historic 550 Spyder and 718 RSK racers, this was much more your classic Porsche, with Grant Larsson’s designs translating beautifully into reality, albeit with a little refinement here and there.

It was certainly more 911 than other Porsches – perhaps too 911 for some. As webuysupercars.com note:

This new Boxster could be mistaken (from the front anyway) as a new 911 convertible, especially if specced with the right wheels.Conversely the new design 911  could now also be mistaken for the new Boxster especially when specced with the wrong wheels.

Not ideal, then, for the reception of the new 911, but great news for potential Boxster buyers who had even more reason to buy the car.

The Boxster has come a long way in 25 years, and to celebrate the journey, the 718 Boxster 25 Years edition was released to celebrate the car's silver anniversary. Limited to 1250 units, this 4-litre, flat-six has already sold out, thanks to a slew of tasteful touches paying homage to the original concept car.

25 years on, the Boxster has proven to be anything but 'the poor man’s Porsche'; it’s a true Porsche in its own right. While this car may have originally been all about the price, in 2021 it’s all about the drive, and people have woken up to the fact that the Boxster, from its first generation, to the latest 718 variant, is simply a fantastic, fun, practical driver’s car. Here’s to another 25 years!

Graham Robson 1936–2021

Last month saw the sad loss of another good friend of Veloce Publishing, and a true great from the world of motoring and auto journalism, Graham Robson, who died peacefully on 5 August at his home in Dorset.

Graham lived only a short drive along the coast from Veloce HQ, and was a frequent visitor throughout the year. With over 20 Veloce books to his name – and even an entire series in Rally Giants  – Graham often popped-in to talk shop and answer questions about his latest work. 

He was also equally inclined to pop in for a coffee and a catch-up, happy to chat about any and every subject from the latest engineering tech, to behind-the-scenes rally stories that only someone who was there could tell – as well as a myriad of things auto-related or otherwise. A dog lover with a soft spot for British Bulldogs, he was equally at home talking pups and pooches as he was pistons and prototypes.

Graham was a straight-talking Yorkshireman, and proud of it. He was also proud of his achievements, but never in a boastful way. With such a long and varied history, he had the remarkable ability to put his own achievements into context without hyperbole or ego creeping in. His directness and desire to get to the nitty-gritty of a subject is evident from his writing, and all Velocisti who had the pleasure to work with him could expect nothing less than utter professionalism and accuracy … with a rollicking good tale or two thrown in for good measure.

A welcome figure on the talking and eventing circuits, Graham was a regular up and down this country, and the USA, commentating, compering and presenting with a knowledge and humour that always made for engaging, enlightening and fun listening; he rapidly became a firm favourite with crowds and organisers alike. Our YouTube channel has a number of videos of Graham that are well worth a watch, including this great Author Profile, recorded in 2014.

His Veloce books hint at just how broad his knowledge was, covering everything from the technicalities of groundbreaking Rally cars, to the global commercial pressures that shaped empire-building brands. He was a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, the winner of many national and international awards and the author of nearly 170 books. His personal experiences of the people, places, and races that have become landmarks in automotive history meant he could talk with an authority unmatched by many writers. 

Graham will be sorely missed by all the Velocisti. What better way to celebrate Graham's life and work than with his Veloce titles, from his first Veloce book in 1998, Cortina: The Story of Ford’s Best Seller, to his soon-to-be published Classic Reprint edition of The Cars of BMC.


We have added a new category to our website featuring all of Graham's Veloce books; you can find it under Automotive > Collections > Graham Robson
