Porsche Boxster 25 Years limited edition launched

Porsche celebrates Boxster’s anniversary with a special model powered by a 4.0-litre engine

  • 395bhp six-cylinder engine
  • 1,250 units to be produced
  • Exclusive styling tweaks

The Porsche 718 Boxster roadster range has gained a 25 Years limited-edition version, built to mark the anniversary of the first Boxster. It’s on sale now but only 1,250 are being sold worldwide, so you’ll need to be quick if you want one. First deliveries are expected to take place in the spring and the car costs £72,760.

That’s expensive for Porsche’s smaller sports car but it does feature the 4.0-litre flat-six engine from the Porsche 718 Boxster GTS. That engine produces 395bhp and slingshots the Boxster 25 Years from 0-62mph in around four seconds. The top speed is 182mph. A manual gearbox is standard but you can pick Porsche’s excellent PDK automatic gearbox as an option.

The 25 Years model stands out with a red fabric roof, which harks back to the original car, and a few exterior trim pieces painted in the colour originally used on the Boxster concept back in 1993. You’ll spot it on the side air intakes and the exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels, among other places.

Inside, you’ll find a pair of dark red leather seats to match the roof, which again pay homage to the first Boxster. There’s also leather on the steering wheel, coupled with aluminium fascia trim and unique ‘Boxster 25’ logos on the threshold plates and roof.

Not only does it get the best engine in the Boxster range, but the 25 Years version also gets Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system as standard, bringing adaptive dampers and a 10mm ride height drop. The popular Sport Chrono pack is standard, too, which boasts performance-enhancing features like launch control.
