2008 Limited Edition Porsche BoxsterSome of the great cars that you were able to preview at the NY Auto Show in the Spring are making their ways to the dealerships. One in particular that we have been keeping our eye on and anticipating is the Porsche Boxster Limited Edition, which will be released September 28th.

The 2008 Porsche Limited Edition Boxster will go on sale with a base price of $49,990 (Original MSRP $45,800). The higher-performance Limited Edition Boxster S, meanwhile, will start at $59,990 (Original MSRP $55,700). Covered in bright orange paint as the 911 GT3 RS, the Limited Edition Boxsters also feature the SportDesign package that adds front spoiler lips, a new automatically extending rear spoiler, and slightly altered rear trim to allow for an integrated diffuser.

There 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.

There are only 500 of these one-of-a-kind vehicles. So if you want one than you better hurry and place your order before they are all taken.
