That the Porsche 718 Boxster 25 Years was painted in silver has a completely different reason, however. The anniversary model pays homage to the Porsche Boxster concept car, unveiled at the 1993 Detroit auto show. The concept had the same color (GT Silver) and was decorated with Neodyme brown details, which you can now also see on the Boxster 25 Years. For example, alloy wheels are copper-colored, as are the front spoiler, the air intakes on the sides, and the lettering. The Porsche 718 Boxster 25 Years can also be ordered in black or white. The interior is available in black, but the burgundy leather in the photos is more authentic (because the study model had that too).
Porsche 718 Boxster 25 Years in an edition of 1250 pieces
The Porsche 718 Boxster 25 Years is based on the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0. That means that it has a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine on board, with 400 hp. Enough to swing the roadster to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds and eventually reach a top speed of 293 km / h. The Boxster 25 Years is equipped as standard with a PDK dual clutch transmission, an active suspension and Porsche Torque Vectoring with a mechanical limited slip differential. Porsche is launching the special edition of the 718 Boxster in a limited edition of 1,250 copies. In the Netherlands, the 718 Boxster 25 Years is available from 138,900 euros.
Four-generation Porsche Boxster in twenty-five years
The Porsche Boxster debuted in 1993 as a study model. It then took three years before a production model was ready. The very first Boxster had a 2.5-liter six-cylinder on board, which produced ‘only’ 204 hp. In 1999 the engine was increased to 2.7 liters and the power increased to 228 hp. Porsche also introduced the Boxster S, which produced 260 hp from a 3.2-liter six-seater. The second generation Boxster S – from 2004 – passed the limit of 300 hp. The third generation also produced an extreme Boxster Spyder variant. In the current Boxster, Porsche used a four-cylinder engine for the first time in the base models.
