Porsche Boxster S Limited Edition @ Auto-X

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. 

You can\'t see it, but there IS an engine in there

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 suspension
  • 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!

Dennis at speed!

Racing Ready is “pumpkin ready”…
