2008 Limited Edition Porsche Boxster and Boxster S

Orange-flavored Boxsters to go into production soon.
There�s really only one way to describe Porsche�s Limited Edition Boxster and Boxster S: Orange.

We first saw this retro-inspired paint job on the 911 GT3 RS a year ago, and now it has been bestowed on the Boxster line. In fact, the color covers everything in the Boxster: the roll bars, interior trim, and even the shift pattern markings are rendered in the less-than-subtle hue. Black side mirrors, intake vents, and script �Boxster� badges offer a slight visual reprieve.

It�s all due to a Splashlight Studios creation that was shown at the New York auto show and attracted so much interest that Porsche wants to endow 500 new Boxsters�250 base models and 250 S models�with the paint job. The modified cars will go into production soon, with an aggressive front lip, revised rear spoiler, and a diffuser in the rear bumper that Porsche says reduces aerodynamic lift.

To ensure this Boxster is special, the package adds a dual-tip sport exhaust to add a handful of extra ponies to the already powerful car.

Inside, Porsche nabs the three-spoke Alcantara-clad steering wheel from the GT3 RS, and they�ve added Alcantara to the seats and parking brake. The car rides on sleek black wheels with silver lips.

Even though the 2007 Boxster S is considerably faster than last year�s model, it�s hard to imagine anyone confusing these special edition cars for a real GT3 RS. Still, we don�t doubt there will be Boxster owners trying to do just that. Right after they don sunglasses so they can look at the car without retinal damage.
