Porsche komt met twee nieuwe modellen van de Boxster en Cayman; de “Porsche Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2” en de “Cayman S Sport” (zoals verwacht).
Beiden hebben een vermogen van 303 pk (223 kW), dit zijn acht paardjes extra in vergelijking met de S modellen. Dat is niet echt bijzonder te noemen, het design is echter wel goed gelukt. Denk aan lekkere 19-inch SportDesign velgen en kleurtjes zoals “Carrera White”.
Introducing two new models, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, are rounding off their range of dynamic mid-engined sports cars at the top. The two new models, the Porsche Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and the Cayman S Sport, develop 303 bhp (223 kW) from 3.4 litres, eight horsepower more than the respective S models.
Both new models come with a wide range of exclusive equipment highlighted by the particularly striking design of the car and will be available at the dealership as of early September.
With the Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1 and the Boxster RS 60 Spyder special series now completely sold out, Porsche are entering the market with new special models based on the prize-winning Boxster S and Cayman S. Only a few weeks ago, Porsche’s roadster model won first prize in the readers’ choice of the German motor magazine “sport auto” in its class of the most sporting convertibles up to Euro 80,000. And in a representative customer enquiry by US market research institute J.D. Power, the Porsche Boxster also came first in its category as the best model.
The Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 now sets new standards, the production colour Carrera White, for a long time one of the highlights in Porsche’s colour range, now receiving additional emphasis in the new Boxster: The star-spoke rims on the 19-inch SportDesign wheels featured as standard, the side air intakes, the centre console and the dials on the three round instruments are also finished in white. Sporting grey stripes extending lengthwise along the body accentuate the brilliant white finish of the car in the same sophisticated style as the red rear lights.
A unique accessory coming with the car is likewise an homage to the white rev counter and speedometer: The Porsche Design Edition 2 Chronograph men’s wristwatch from the Dashboard Collection features a white face and was developed especially for this very special Boxster.
