Is this the Boxster concept predecessor Porsche 984?

A study from 1984/5 and the only 984 Junior Porsche ever made

Check out the air intakes that were very similar to the concept!

It looks like it. It's like a JR mid-engined 928. I'm glad it evolved!

Yeah, seen that before.

When you look at that, it makes me think the 986 is destined for classic status.

The 986 might not be a gorgeous as the 1993 Boxster concept, but it's beautiful compared to the 984!

Looks like a Miata and a 928 had a baby.

Don't forget the 984's big brother, the 1988 four-door 989 concept car.

Looks like the successor to the 968
