Dennis featured his brand new, brilliant orange 2008 Porsche Boxster S Limited Edition at the recent SPOKES autocross on 10/5. You couldn’t help but notice that bright color, only available within that Porsche limited series model.
This was his second event with this car – it has only 4000 miles on it. Dennis calls this his “fun car” – he’s really enjoying it. He has been autocrossing on & off for about 15 years.
He has owned and driven other Porsche models, from 928’s to 911’s, and says that this Boxster is the easiest & most neutral Porsche to drive. He describes going around curves & cones as a smooth, controlled rotation motion. This is so as its a mid-engined car, with the engine ahead of the rear axle.
This Limited Edition Porsche Boxster S is completely stock, except for the contrasting 3M blue painter’s tape Dennis applied that morning. 😉 This is to protect that vivid, but creamy smooth orange paint from suffering rock chips.
So what sets this Limited Edition model Boxster S from your standard unit? It’s the collection of options that make this Boxster special:
SportDesign package (an aggressive front spoiler lip, a revised rear spoiler that automatically extends, & an integrated rear diffuser
Sport dual-tip exhaust system
Alcantara on the seats, steering wheel, shift knob & handbrake & other trim pieces
black fabric convertible top
engine is a 3.4-liter flat-six with Porsche’s VarioCam Plus system, producing 295 hp
19” alloy wheels (black with silver edges)
and a distinct Limited Edition plaque on the dash (it says #194/250, but the sun washed out the 194…)
Dennis said you could buy all these options separately, but this package sells for a much more reasonable amount. He lives in Austin, but had to go to Houston to purchase this model.
This Porsche is striking and noticeable in its presence, but is not a poser – it can stand up to that first impression of performance it exudes.
But, not only does it look & sound good, it goes good, too – as you can see!
Racing Ready is “pumpkin ready”…
