The model has performance upgrades,lower and wider stance, special colors and interior features.

When Porsche unveiled the Boxster as a concept car at the 1993 North American International Auto Show in Cobo Hall,the mid-engine roadster rekindled fond memories of the Porsche 550 Spyder for automotive enthusiasts around the world.Now in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its famous and lightweight sportscar,Porsche unveils a special edition of the Porsche Boxster S.Wearing special “50 Years of the 550 Spyder” badging,only 1953 of these very special vehicles will be produced.

The 550 Spyder,which took its name because it was the 550th design project undertaken by the Porsche company,made its international debut in October1953 at the Paris Motor Show.The 550 Spyder was the first sports car specially designed by Porsche with racing in mind, and its successes through the years provided a foundation on which the fame of the Porsche marque spread around the world.

The Porsche Boxster S shares many of its features with the 550 Spyder, including bodylines that are timeless in their elegance and athletic nature.To enhance the already outstanding dynamic characteristics of the Boxster S,Porsche engineers have included sought-after equipment and technical featuresnot previously available in this model line.They have boosted the 3.2-liter flat-six engine’s output to 264 horsepower (SAE), up from 258.They have reduced the travel of the six-speed manual transmission’s aluminum shifter by 15 percent,thus further enhancing the driver’s pleasure. Drivers who prefer cars with Tiptronic S automatic transmission have the option of equipping their cars with shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel.A special exhaust system with a stainless steel tailpipe delivers the sort of sounds that stimulate those inside the car as well as those who hear it pass.The appearance and performance of this very special Boxster S includes a wider and lower stance.The car’s already aggressively tuned suspension is lowered by nearly four-tenths of an inch (10 mm). This revised stance is made even more noticeable by the use of wheel spacers that are nearly two-tenths of an inch (5 mm)wide and thus move the car’s wheels slightly outboard. This lower and wider stance improves the car’s handling and permits higher lateral acceleration values.Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is included as standard equipment on each of the special edition Boxster S models.

To enhance the car’s performance after dark, all of the special edition Boxster S models are equipped with Litronic headlamps with dynamic beam angle adjustment and washers.The car rides on 17-inch wheels, with 18-inch Carrera wheels as an option.Showing through those wheels are special four-piston aluminum brake calipers,painted in an aluminum finish.Most of the original 550 Spyders were painted silver and the special edition Boxster S models reflect their heritage with gleaming silver metallic paint, a color previously reserved for the Porsche Carrera GT and for Porsche’s “40 Years ofthe 911” special edition model. The gills on the rear fenders also get special silver paint, and the Boxster S lettering on the car’s rear deck is chrome plated and polished.The roadster’s soft top marks Porsche’s first use of a dark brown Cocoa color.The silver and Cocoa colors carry through into the car’s interior. As an alternative,the car can be equipped with a black top and with dark gray natural leather interior.

Lower and wider suspension,standard Porsche Stability Management enhance handling Silver metallic paint, Cocoa softtop make strong visual statement In either color combination, leather is used on the standard heated sports seats,the handbrake lever, the gear lever, the inside door handles and the padded sport steering wheel.The seat back shells, the rear section of the center console, the uncovered section of the handbrake, the grooved bar on the dashboard, the switch panel and the back of the integral roll bars wear the GT-silver color. The forward face of the roll bars are colored to match the car’s interior.Gauges have black dials inside chrome-plated rings. Each car is equipped with a uniquely numbered plate on its center console.Standard equipment includes a trip computer, automatic climate controls, a windbreaker and a Porsche CDR-23 radio.

This special edition Boxster S pays homage to one of the most famous of all Porsche models.
