This was noted by a reader from Jalopnik, who photographed the billboard in question only to realize that, this was not the only billboard where the name of the vehicle was wrongly spelt.

The name Boxster is derived from a combination of two words – ‘Boxer’ a name given to the vehicle due to its horizontally placed engine and ‘Roadster’ for the car’s open top design and two seater capacity.
