2009 Porsche Boxster S Design Edition 2 to debut at Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2008

First of all, before Porsche Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and the Cayman S Sport, we had the Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1 and the Boxster RS 60 Spyder special series.

Due to the fact that Porsche sold all the units, the German manufacturer decided to enter the market with new special models based on the prize-winning Boxster S and Cayman S (if you didn't know, find out that the Porsche Boxster 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).

The two new models, the Porsche Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and the Cayman S Sport, which will be unveiled this week at the Paris Motor Show, are powered by the 3.4 liter, which now delivers 303 hp, with 8 hp more than the standard version (standard version has 295 hp).

What is really interesting about this car is that it comes with a wide range of exclusive equipment created to satisfy all the categories of customers. The Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 features one of the highlights in Porsche's color range, the Carrara White which now received additional emphasis in the new Boxster.

The car also comes with the star-spoke rims on the 19-inch SportDesign wheels featured as standard and side air intakes while at the interior the centre console and the dials on the three round instruments are also finished in white.

In order to bring a homage to the white rev counter and speedometer as well as to this special edition of the Boxster, the German manufactured created the Porsche Design Edition 2 Chronograph, a new men wristwatch.

Unfortunately we have no data regarding the price but as soon as we know something we will let you know! The new Porsche Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and the Cayman S Sport will be available at the dealerships as of early September!

Press Release

More Power and Unique Design Cues Mark New Porsche Boxster S and Cayman S Limited Editions

A comprehensive list of enhancements, led by more powerful engines and unique visual features, will distinguish the new, limited-edition Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and Porsche Cayman S Sport mid-engine sports cars when they are introduced in October by Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) and Porsche Cars Canada.

Porsche will build 500 Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and 700 Cayman S Sport models worldwide, each one with a glove box plaque bearing its number from the exclusive series. Both cars will be available through authorized Porsche dealers in Canada this October, and the Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and Cayman S Sport MSRPs in Canada are $85,500 and $89,100, respectively.

A range of standard equipment, beyond the eight-horsepower bump to 303 from the 3.4-Liter engine, further sets these variants apart from the standard Porsche Cayman S and Boxster S.

The Cayman S Sport’s appearance emulates that of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, beginning with standard GT3 RS exterior colors of green or orange, which are enhanced by GT3 RS touches like black rims, exterior mirrors and air-intake grilles and a black interior design package. Like the GT3 RS, the sides of the new car feature its model designation, “Cayman S” in black letters. In addition to orange and green, the Cayman S Sport will be available in black, Guards Red, Speed Yellow, Carrara White or Arctic Silver.

Performance upgrades standard on the Cayman S Sport beyond the engine include Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with a 10mm-lowered suspension, as well as 5mm spacers on the 19-inch SportDesign wheels.

Additional standard features include Bi-Xenon headlamps, the Sports Chrono Package, sports seats, alcantara finish for the gearshift lever, hand brake and the rim of the GT3 steering wheel, as well as a sports exhaust system featuring a twin-chamber tailpipe.

Spotting the new Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 will be easy – look for the Carrara White mid-engine Porsche roadster with white finishes on the star-spoke, painted 19-inch SportDesign wheels, side air intakes, center console and instrument dials. Contrasting the white features are grey stripes lengthwise along the body, and black standard leather upholstery and convertible top in stone grey.

Echoing the white tachometer and speedometer is the included Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 Chronograph, a men’s wristwatch from the Porsche Design Dashboard Collection designed in conjunction with the car.
