Everything You Need to Know about the Porsche Boxster 25th Anniversary Edition
The 25th Anniversary Edition of the Porsche Boxster celebrates a quarter-century of the successful model. The design, a throwback to the early 1990s model, still gives a sleek and sporty image that fits in well with today’s high-performance sports cars. Throughout the rest of this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about the Porsche Boxster 25th Anniversary Edition.
Why the Special Edition
To celebrate the Boxster’s popularity, Porsche decided to manufacture a limited supply of the 25th anniversary models to reward the Porsche enthusiast. A second reason was to give thanks to the Boxster, which helped get the brand through rough times during the 90s. With only several hundred of these collectibles made, Porsche had no trouble selling them during the pre-order stage, even with a price tag of $98,000. Now, let’s look at the technical aspects.
The anniversary edition comes with a mid-size motor that has made the Boxster a favorite of owners. An aggressive 394 horsepower creates a 0-60 speed within an incredible 4.3 seconds. Topping out at an impressive 182 miles per hour, this now-classic design offers everything you could want in a sports car. The list of features for the engine and drivetrain on this vehicle are a testament to the engineering of the Porsche brand.
The mid-size engine’s performance is not the only benefit of the Boxster’s motor. By using the smaller engine, the Boxster’s overall size comes in at a whopping 172 inch length, giving it plenty of room for storage for this style of vehicle. It also allows for more legroom for taller drivers who have always found a Boxster style lacking in comfort.
The Boxster anniversary edition has a suspension that functions at a high level and is one of the most advanced systems of any cars in the world. Here are a few aspects of the Boxster chassis and suspension according to Porsche:
- Electromechanical power steering with a variable steering ratio
- Struts and shock suspension with front and rear stabilizers
- Enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) with ABS, ASR, ABD, and EDTC as well as pre-filling of the brake system and brake assist
- Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
The Porsche Boxster anniversary edition comes with safety features we expect in the Porsche brand. With the ability to reach speeds only racing cars are capable of, the Boxster is designed with that sport in mind. Front and rear deformation zones, impact bars, and several driver and passenger airbags make up just some of the safety features on this car. The Boxster also possesses a sophisticated braking arrangement that is advanced for any high-performance system.
Although the design is a throwback to the early 1990s, its builtin advanced technology is not. The dash is composed of an instrumentation cluster right out of the future, while still retaining the classic look of a sports car. The display includes a tachometer and a high-resolution 4.6-inch touchscreen. Included are navigation, radio controls, telephone display options, and more.
Keeping Your Boxster Maintained
The 25th edition will remain a collector’s item long into the future. Owners of the Boxster will need to follow Porsche’s recommended maintenance program to keep this vehicle in top condition for years to come. The advanced technology in the Porsche brand requires servicing that is as expert as the engineering that goes into the design and building of the car.
Owners of the special edition Boxster will count on the vehicle holding its value over the years as the popularity of the edition will rise. Keeping it in good condition should not be trusted to the care of any mechanic. Only certified technicians with the experience necessary to look after the vehicle’s maintenance need consideration for the job.
