The 1997 Boxster was inspired by the lines of the 550 Porsche Spyder of the early 1950s. For the next decade, the 986 Boxster continued to see many design and engine changes. In 2005, an all-new 987 model debuted, and in 2008 Porsche introduced the limited-edition Porsche Spyder as the GTS RS (Orange/Black) with a limited run of 250 cars, this specific example was voted as one of the top 15 most desirable Porsches by CNBC.
Exterior. The Limited Edition Boxster carries a SportDesign package that includes spoiler lips in the front, an automatically extending and redesigned rear spoiler, and modified rear trim with integrated diffuser providing a more stunning and sporty appearance. Complementing the GT3RS orange paint are several eye-catching elements in black including black painted 18 inch alloy wheels, 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.
Interior. 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. The three-spoke steering wheel is shared with 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS. This Boxster comes with optional Heated front seats, Bose Sound package, Navigation and Sport Chrono Package.
Performance. The boxster is powered by a 2.7L 245 horsepower 6 cylinder and backed by a Tiptronic S transmission which only 50 of the 250 Limited edition boxsters came with.
