To celebrate the anniversary of the original Boxster’s release in 1996, Porsche introduced a new special edition “Boxster 25 Years” model. Only 1,250 examples will be built, each based on the current GTS 4.0 model. This means a 394-horsepower 4-liter flat six-cylinder engine, and 0-60 is as low as 3.8 seconds. It can be used with PDK or 6-speed gearboxes, but each one will be equipped with a set of beautiful simple five-spoke bronze wheels.
Porsche calls this bronzer Neodyme, and it is used in many places throughout the special edition model. In addition to the wheels, it will also be used for the front grille, side air intakes and all exterior signs of the car. It is described as a “bronze-like shiny brown” and contrasts with any of the three available colors. GT silver metal, dark black metal and Carrara white metal.
If there is a choice, I will choose black. Especially considering that the inside and top of these Boxsters will be blood red for 25 years. Oh yes, that’s great. You can choose black for the interior and top, but this is only for the coward.
It has been a while since Porsche made a wheel like this.It doesn’t take a lot for the wheels to really pop out, but there are only two shades of colorte is one way to do this. The 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 is already an extractable shape, so no complicated fancy wheel design is required. This flat five-spoke is very low-key. When the spoke touches the wheel rim, it only needs to be opened a little bit.
The work of this designer is absolutely amazing.
If you need one of these things, please contact your Porsche dealer as soon as possible, because they only have 1,250 cars that can last forever.However, it’s not cheap, because 25 years started in $98,600 plus Shipping fee is $ 1,350. Consider the “standard” 718 The Boxster GTS 4.0 starts at $88,900. This anniversary package is indeed a lot of money, but the wheels alone are worth it.
