Fresh colors and harmonious contrast packages characterise the new Porsche 718 Boxster Style Edition and 718 Cayman Style Edition models. Both mid-engine models have always stood for the perfect combination of driving pleasure and everyday practicality. With the Style Edition, Porsche is now presenting an exclusive variant for customers who attach particular importance to a striking design for their vehicle. This is particularly evident in the selection of the exterior color Ruby Star Neo, which provides a modern interpretation of the Ruby Star of the legendary Porsche 911 Carrera RS of the 964 generation.
Exclusive details set the models apart
Even if Porsche customers have their Style Edition models painted in a colour other than Ruby Star Neo, the new variants are clearly distinguishable. For example, they drive on 20-inch 718 Spyder wheels in high-gloss black, and their wheel hub covers feature coloured Porsche Crests. The Style Edition is also recognisable by its black sport tailpipes and “Porsche” lettering in high-gloss silver in the back. On the 718 Boxster Style Edition, “Boxster” lettering embossed above the side windows is added to the soft top as an exclusive label. Customers can choose between two 718 Style Edition contrast packages at no extra charge: one in black, the other in white. Both include decorative stripes on the luggage compartment lid at the front and “Porsche” decorative lettering on the side, as well as black and white high-gloss paint finishes for the wheels and model designations at the rear, respectively. Inside, the Style Edition models feature a leather package in black including contrast stitching in crayon, illuminated door sill panels in stainless steel and the Porsche Crest on the headrests.
Extended standard equipment adds to the appeal
718 Boxster and Cayman Style Edition are exceptionally well equipped: BiXenon main headlights with LED daytime running lights, ParkAssist front and rear including rearview camera, Apple CarPlay, cruise control, automatically dimming exterior and interior mirrors including rain sensor, heated smooth leather multifunction steering wheel, heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, floor mats with contrast stitching in crayon and leather package in black with contrast stitching in crayon are all on board as standard. Both models can also be further upgraded with a wide range of options.
Six-speed manual transmission comes standard
In terms of powertrain and chassis, the Style Edition models do not differ from one another. Both are based on the entry-level versions of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman with the 220 kW (300 PS) two-litre boxer engine behind the seats. The turbocharged four-cylinder generates 380 Newton meters of torque and takes the Style Edition models, which are manually shifted through six gears as standard, from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds (with optional seven-speed PDK: 4.7 seconds). Regardless of the selected transmission, both reach a top speed of 275 km/h.
