Porsche Announces Price and Launch Date for New Limited Edition Boxster



    Unique Orange Head Turner Dazzles Consumers with Eye-Catching Design and
Pricing

    ATLANTA, August 9 /CNW/ - Porsche's all-new orange 2008 Limited Edition
Boxster and Boxster S will soon be stirring excitement around the country with
a stylish design and competitive pricing starting at $49,900 USD and $59,900
USD, respectively. With the first Limited Edition being displayed at a special
sneak preview at the NY Auto Show this past spring where it received a rave
reception, the 500 eagerly anticipated Limited Edition Boxster and Boxster S
models will go on sale in dealerships on September 28, 2007 throughout the
U.S. and Canada.

    Clad in striking orange paint, a color previously featured only with the
track-ready Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the Limited Edition Boxster is as well-built
as it is eye-catching and even includes a special "Limited Edition" plaque on
the glove compartment. Its sport exhaust system, as well as the safety bars,
designed to help protect occupants, are dressed in orange paint. And the
SportDesign package that includes spoiler lips in the front, an automatically
extending and redesigned rear spoiler, and modified rear trim with integrated
diffuser provides a more stunning and sporty appearance.

    Complementing the orange paint are several eye-catching elements in black
including black painted alloy wheels--with large 18 inch standard on the
Boxster and 19-inch standard on the Boxster S--striking black exterior side
mirrors, black front and side air inlets, all of which tastefully complement
the car's model designation in black on the rear deck and a black convertible
top. Black carries over to the seats, carpet, dash, door panels and other
surrounding soft surfaces. Adding to the performance theme is the use of
Alcantara trim, a suede-like material used on performance Porsches like the
911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS. Alcantara is pleasant to touch, but it also helps
occupants stay planted in the interior during sporty driving. Alcantara trim
is used on seat inserts, the three-spoke steering wheel from the 911 GT3 and
911 GT3 RS, and gear shift and handbrake lever on vehicles with manual
transmission.

    To further tie the interior and exterior, Porsche designers added touches
of bright orange to interior trim pieces such as the door lever surrounds and
the trim panel that covers the dash-mounted cup holders. Even the gray shift
pattern on the gear shift lever carries an orange font.
