Porsche’s all-new orange 2008 Limited Edition Boxster and Boxster S will soon be
stirring excitement around the country with a stylish design and competitive
pricing starting at $49,900 USD and $59,900 USD, respectively. With the first
Limited Edition being displayed at a special sneak preview at the NY Auto this
past spring where it received a rave reception, the 500 eagerly anticipated
Orange Boxster and Boxster S models will go on sale in dealerships on September
28, 2007 throughout the U.S.
Clad in striking orange paint, a color previously featured only with the track ready Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the Limited Edition Boxster is as well-built as it is eye-catching and even includes a special “Limited Edition” plaque in the glove compartment. It touts a sport exhaust system and safety bars, designed to help protect occupants, are dressed in orange paint. And the SportDesign package that includes spoiler lips in the front, an automatically extending and redesigned rear spoiler, and modified rear trim with integrated diffuser provides a more stunning and sporty appearance.
Complementing the orange paint are several eye-catching elements in black including black painted alloy wheels—with large 18 inch standard on the Boxster and 19-inch standard on the Boxster S—striking black exterior side mirrors, black front and side air inlets, all of which tastefully compliment the car’s model designation in black on the rear deck and a black convertible top. Black carries over to the seats, carpet, dash, door panels and other surrounding soft surfaces. Adding to the performance theme is the use of Alcantara trim, a suede-like material used on performance Porsches like the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS. Alcantara is pleasant to touch, but it also helps occupants stay planted in the interior during sporty driving. Alcantara trim is used on seat inserts, the three-spoke steering wheel from the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS, and handbrake lever on vehicles with manual transmission.
To further tie the interior and exterior, Porsche designers added touches of bright orange to interior trim pieces such as the door lever surrounds and the trim panel that covers the dash-mounted cup holders. Even the shift pattern on the gear shift lever is orange.
