I thought the name Boxer came from the action of the pistons? Why Boxer? Because in engines with a horizontally opposed cylinder design, the pistons' action mimics a boxer's punching. 8)Enzo250GTO said:
The Boxster's name plays on the words 'boxer' (its horizontally-opposed engine configuration) and 'roadster'.Alexander348 said:Hello,
Is the name Boxer used in the Ferrari model referring to the engine type? Also, the Boxster that Porsche produced, is that some modification for spelling Boxer and is it so named for the Boxer engine styling as well?
:lol: The more I check - the more references I find for both roadster and speedster!! :lol:250lm said:Although Porsche probably used the Boxster name indeed for Boxer and Roadster, I thought it was Boxer and Speedster (which has some historic ring in it).
