The Porsche Boxster is marking 25 years on the road, and the German automaker is celebrating with a special edition. Only 1,250 examples of the Boxster 25 Years will be produced, taking the latest 718 GTS 4.0 and giving it a makeover inspired by the original Boxster concept. That car, revealed at the 1993 Detroit Motor Show, set the stage for what has become one of Porsche’s most popular models.
Like the concept, the Boxster 25 Years has coppery trim elements to distinguish itself from the other 357,000 Boxster examples which Porsche has sold over the past two and a half decades. That means a striking front apron, side intakes, and two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there’s a leather cabin in either Bordeaux red or black, with power sports seats and Boxster 25 badges. The fabric roof gets special badges too.
Keeping the car moving is a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, which will keep the limited-edition car going to 182 mph. 0-62 mph comes in 4.0 seconds, and Porsche will offer owners a choice of its six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK). Porsche Active Suspension Management sports suspension (PASM), a 10mm lowered ride height, and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical limited-slip differential are also standard.
