Following the success of the Porsche 911 T, they have unleashed the same upgrades for the 718 Series Boxster and Cayman. Less is more when it comes to weight. So their first area of attack was to ditch the audio system. The giant screen is a distraction anyway, but it can be ordered as a no-cost option.
Next up was the heavy PDK transmission. It can also be ordered if you don’t want the thrill of a six-speed with a factory short shifter. The Porsche Active Suspension Management is standard, riding almost an inch lower than the base models. It is the first time this system has been combined with the 2.0L turbo engine.
You will have 295 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque in a 2,970 lb car. This exciting power-to-weight ratio is heightened by Porsche Torque Vectoring and a mechanical locking differential. Porsche has been known to increase the price for special editions, so we’re glad the press release mentions they will be 10% less expensive than a regular production Boxster or Cayman.
