In 1993, Porsche unveiled a concept car by surprise at the 1993 Detroit Motor Show, the Boxster. It foreshadowed the redesigned Porsche 911 Type 996 and would lead to a series model three years later, the Porsche Boxster.
In 1996, the Porsche Boxster hit the market, and some 357,000 units and 25 years later, the German manufacturer pays tribute, both to the production model and to the concept car, with a special edition based on the current model, the Porsche 718 Boxster 25th Anniversary.
Silver exterior and red interior, in the style of the Boxster concept and 550 Spyder
This anniversary edition has a specific configuration that should be reminiscent of the concept car. The metallic “Silver GT” color of the bodywork is completed by slightly coppery brown elements, close to the champagne tones. This color called “Neodymium”And what is seen in the TaycanIt can also be seen on the 20-inch wheels, the side air intakes, the logos and even the front bumper.
By the way, in a brand where the past has so much weight, it is surprising to see a Porsche with rims with a design unusual at Porsche and that, in a way, reminds me of Enkei EV5.
The windshield frame, meanwhile, is painted black for added contrast. Another specific detail: the presence of an aluminum tank cap with a Porsche monogram, from the Exclusive Manufaktur catalog.
In case the silver color was not to the customer’s taste, it is also available in ‘Intense Black’ and the classic Porsche white “Carrara White”, metallic in both cases.
Like the 1993 concept car, this 718 Boxster opts for the burgundy leather upholstery with a matching soft top. Both elements can also be chosen in black. An embossed “Boxster 25” monogram is present on the hood, as well as on various elements of the passenger compartment (side skirts, dashboard in front of the passenger).
In addition to the standard equipment, this special edition features a heated multifunction GT sports steering wheel in leather, 14-way electrically adjustable sports seats and an aluminum interior pack.
A 6-cylinder boxer engine with 400 hp
This special series “Boxster Edition 25 years” is based on the Boxster GTS 4.0 with Crhono pack as standard. Therefore, it has under its hood the 400 PS 4.0-liter naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer. It can be associated with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK. Run the 0 to 100 km / h in 4 s, with the PDK gearbox, while the top speed is 293 km / h.
Porsche will put on sale only 1,250 units of the new 25th Anniversary Boxster worldwide, of which, in principle, 22 units will be for Spain and Portugal. In any case, the Boxster 25th Anniversary can now be ordered and will arrive in dealerships at the end of March. He price in Spain is from 109,443 euros, with manual transmission, and from 113,156 euros, with PDK transmission.
