The limited edition Porsche Boxster 25 Years from 2021 was officially unveiled in Europe – prior to Australia’s arrival in April – to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the two-seater sports car. Based on the GTS 4.0 standard, the new 718 Boxster, limited edition, is powered by a 4.0 liter “Boxer” six-cylinder horizontal counter engine with an output of 294 kW / 420 Nm. Power is channeled to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic transmission with dual clutch Porsche PDK, which brings the car to a top speed of 293 km / h.
The PDK transmission option offers a slightly faster time from zero to 100 km / h and ends the sprint in the specified 4.0 seconds. Bordeaux leather upholstery is paired with a red embossed fabric that can be turned into a homage to the original 1993 concept (and subsequent production models from 1996).
The car also has front and side injection accents in revamped “Neodyme” bronze colors, similar to the original concept (shared below with modern cars). The main color options include Silver Metallic, Deep Black Metallic, and Carrara White Metallic.
Standard equipment includes an aluminum interior package, an electrically adjustable 14-way sports seat, a door frame labeled “Boxster 25” and a heated leather GT multifunction sports steering wheel. Auto dimming mirrors, automatic rain sensor, heated seats, lane change assistant, cruise control, parking assistant, reverse camera, interior monitoring, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and Apple CarPlay are available as standard on all Australian models. .
The first production version of the Boxster began in 1996 and after shipping more than 357,000 units, this model is now entering its fourth generation. Only 1,250 copies of the new limited edition car will be produced, but the exact number of which will come to Australia is unclear. The first example is expected to arrive on site in April 2021 and will cost $ 183,900 plus travel expenses. Reuters
