Fresh colours and harmonious contrast packages characterise the new Porsche 718 Boxster Style Edition and 718 Cayman Style Edition sports cars. Available on the base model, this is a sweet package for the buyer looking to jazz up their base Cayman or Boxster and make them really special. Underlining Porsche’s commitment to ever more creative and vibrant bespoke finishes, the new models are characterized by special colors and matching contrasting elements. This is evident with the new color Ruby Star Neo, a modern interpretation of the color used on the 964 Carrera RS.
(GTS 4.0)... Screaming flat-six, phenomenal manual transmission, near-GT4 performance... Tall gearing limits opportunities to shift.. has massive cornering capabilities.

We'd recommend keeping the options to a minimum, selecting only the lowered suspension with adaptive dampers, a limited-slip rear differential, and ventilated seats.

Current Porsche 718 Boxster Lineup
The current 718 Boxster is perfect sports car that is so much fun on backroads and can also be used daily with very few compromises. The 718 turbocharged flat-four engines come in two sizes. The 2.0-litre (Boxster/Cayman) and 2.5-litre (Boxster S/Cayman S). The larger displacement comes with increased torque and horsepower. The S model turbocharger utilizes Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) technology. The 718 T models were released for the 2020 model year as more sport-oriented versions of the base 718 models. Later in October 2017, the GTS models were announced with their 2.5-litre engines rated at 360 hp. Since 2020, the GTS 4.0 model has been offered for both 718 models. The 4.0-litre flat-6 from the Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder is de-tuned to 394 hp but you can't tell from behind the wheel. Rounding out the range is the Boxster T, a back to basics Boxster that focuses on more fun and less glam. There is not a bad Boxster in the current range.
The Boxster offers three engines: a 300-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four, a 350-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four on the S model, and a 394-hp 4.0-liter flat-six on the GTS 4.0.
