2008 Porsche Boxster Special Edition

David Axberg

Porsche has officially released a special edition Boxster, first shown at a private gathering down the street from New York Show earlier this year. In addition to being painted the same orange (actually it's slightly different as to not alienate RS buyers, but no one else will notice) from the GT3 RS supercar, the special edition Boxster will have a subtle body kit and black wheels to differentiate it further from the regular roadster. Mechanical changes are limited to a sport exhaust. Inside, grippy Alcantara has been splashed about the cockpit, both on the seats and the comically thick steering wheel.

The Boxster Special Edition will be available in both regular and "S" models, with just 250 examples of each model expected to be produced. Pricing information is not yet released, but purchasing this special edition Boxster will undoubtedly be the cheapest way to get a bright orange Porsche from the factory to your driveway. The way this thing looks, we're guessing that most of those driveways will be in Miami or Los Angeles.
