Our friends across the pond now have four new packages to choose from when ordering a new Porsche Boxster or Cayman. The German automaker introduced new comfort, infotainment, design, and design sport packages on European Boxster and Cayman models.
Although Porsches are designed to be sports cars, the company strives to provide a considerable amount of luxury. The comfort package for the Boxster and Cayman builds upon this quest, adding items like dynamic bi-xenon headlights, cruise control, automatically dimming mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers. The comfort package for the Boxster and Boxster S also includes a removable wind deflector. On both Boxster models, the comfort package will retail for around €2600 ($3500), while adding the package to a Cayman only adds an extra $3200.
The infotainment package includes exactly what you’d expect it to — upgrades are focused on improving the navigation, audio, and communications systems. Porsche Communications Management is included, which has navigation and an auxiliary audio input. Infortainment packages also include Porsche’s up-level sound systems, which include a 185-watt, seven-speaker system on Boxsters and a more powerful 235-watt, nine-speaker system on Caymans. Bluetooth connectivity is also included in the infotainment package, which will add around €3100 ($4200) to the cost of either Boxster or Cayman models.
Opting for the design package gives Boxster and Cayman buyers the lightweight 19-inch black wheels previously exclusive to the Boxster Spyder. Exterior mirrors, exhaust tips, air intakes, model designation, and interior trim pieces are also finished in a matching black hue, as are the Boxster’s roll bars. The design package costs €3800 ($5100) for the Boxster, €2600 ($3400) for the Boxster S, €3600 ($4800) for the Cayman, and €2300 ($3100) for the Cayman S.
Opting for the design sport package includes all of the elements seen in the design package, but includes a new front and rear lip spoilers. It adds a total of €6700 ($9000) to the price of a Boxster and €6500 ($8645) to a Cayman. Like the design package, it comes in a little cheaper for the Boxster S and Cayman S models at €5500 ($7300) and €5200 ($7000), respectively.
