    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Thanks Porsche for making another useless/pointless "special edition" 987 based anything!@#$#$%?%$

    What the heck does 303 hp get you over 295? 315 hp would of been something to brag about...

    315 just would be too close to the upcoming facelift/DFI engine

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Thanks Ron, always nice to see new Boxster news. Not my cup of tea either, but it is interesting the article states

    "the flat-six is uncorked with a sports exhaust that bumps output to 303 HP".

    Would the PSE really be what results in the 8 hp increase? If it is it has me thinking, the MY09 facelift with DFI and PSE might be around 320 hp and would be a heck of a lot of fun.

    We should start getting used to these special editions . I guess the Orange ones sold out too quickly they decided to bring on another special edition for the ones didn't get a chance to waste their money on the RS Orange editions .

    Whatever has become of Porsche ?

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Carrera red is not fuschia!

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Color combination is classic, belonging to a bygone era, but tastes change with time. The red top with GT silver should be quite unique. Not sure why folks get so worked up about Porsche introducing these special editions. They did the same thing with the 911 in the 1980s. If the option package happens to suit your tastes it's a good deal compared to compiling the options on your own. If it's not your taste, well, so what? After all, Porsche isn't defrauding the public with these cars.

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    The past special editions on the 911 series had at least chronological background, e.g. the 30th or 40th anniv. editions.

    Since the Millenium edition those outputs promote more or less aesthetical unique features. It is at least good to see that they did not limit this edition to a variation of colour or the common options you could find on other cars of that modelrange but installed some unseen items (as the exhaust system or painted gaugecluster). I do believe, that, if made in the right way, those special editions could become a common sight and help a couple of (tastelessly) customers to fulfill their dreams of a somewhat personalized, low-volume edition. If Porsche cars themselves are not any uncommon nowadays, why not make those cars themselves look customized?

    @PJ Sssshhh Dont be a pumpernickel

    Porsche has new themes for 2009 and 2010 special edition cars I have the inside scoop!

    "Super 60 Bug Squisher" Comes with exclusive faster wiper speed, high voltage windshield washer fluid and special rubber driving gloves.

    "Boxster Normal" Comes with round A/C vents, manual roof, 2.7 engine and normal gears that are not a bit too long like std models have. But will cost $$$ more than S type because of "heritage" basketweave vinyl door trim!

    "Boxster America UAE" Has new Seimens GPS ignition lock system that automatically dings bank debit card for lease payments to Citi Bank.


    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    It should come with LSD like the 40th Anniversary 996...

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Totally pointless and utterly disrespectful to the past model.

    They must be really getting desperate.

    Orange special edition, RS 60 edition, Cayman Porsche design edition, all within 6~ months...

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Well i was just as scathing as the rest of you when i saw the pictures of another special edition. But i'm starting to look at it this way..

    My car, with similar spec cost Pounds47k new just over 2 years ago, so probably nudging Pounds48k if bought now.

    For Pounds3k less the RS60 would get me..

    natural leather over normal leather
    sports exhaust
    the bigger 3.4 engine

    Now none of these are going to set my world alight, but they do represent an improvement in value for money. If i was buying now then i'd probably go for the limited edition, GTS with red roof. However, i'm not thinking of buying now, and it isn't enough to even tempt me knoign the facelift and DFI are a year away.

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    Those repeat special editions are meaningless and in no way special. But agreed, for people who would have ordered a lot of options anyway, it's a relative bargain.

    In Germany you'd pay about 7k Euro more if you'd spec a standard 987S the same way.

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    What is the reason for the power increase? According to the article it is only the modified sports exhaust. So... is this not the normal PSE offered for the 987 or is this the normal PSE with X51 headers? Or.. does all 987 with PSE actually have 303hp

    "A modified sports exhaust system combined with dual tailpipes increases engine output to 303 bhp"

    The sound of PSE is worth 50 bhp

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    not very fond of the interior colour.

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    They shouldn't call it special ediotions, cause they are not... They are Normal cars with options that are in no way special, with a special price... So the price is special, not the car.

    Re: Boxster S RS Images out

    yeah they're like package deals, easier for porsche to sell internally. some combinations of options are just more popular and i think porsche is trying to adress those and some more to sell more right off the line and not having to deal with special built orders.. thats really the only reason i can see why they would come out with all these "edition" packages.. cause really they are just the same car with a package of options already for cheaper than if you were to order that precise vehicle at porsche!
