Porsche will mark the 25th anniversary of its Boxster with a limited-run variant based on the GTS 4.0.

The Boxster 25 Years, 1250 of which will be sold worldwide, is available to order now, priced £72,760 (including £10,000 worth of options). Deliveries will start in the spring.

Externally, the mid-engined model receives detail changes, such as the use of the copper-like ‘Neodyme’ colour – which Porsche used on the original Boxster concept in 1993 – for the front apron, side air intakes, badging and 20in two-tone wheels. As with that concept, the standard colour is GT Silver metallic, with black metallic and white metallic also offered.

As standard, the special Boxster has a red fabric top with ‘Boxster 25’ lettering. A black roof is also available.

Further revisions include high-gloss tailpipes, a black windscreen surround and an aluminium-look fuel filler cap.

Inside, Bordeaux leather is specified as standard to match the hood, although black leather is also available. Aluminium trim, unique door sill trims and 14-way electrically adjustable seats also feature.

The car’s naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine puts out 395bhp. Manual and PDK automatic gearboxes are offered, with the PDK enabling a 0-62mph time of 4.0sec and a top speed of 182mph.

Shame they didn't use the 'Boxster Red' interior colour from the original. Seems lazy... Buy a standard GTS and use Porsche Individul to spec the original's colour combo...

 The 25

           For the same money you could have the same thrill in some lurid color just as fast and handling just as good, and it comes from Bavaria.

I dont think the Bavarians are interested in a low slung sports car, naturally aspirated, with a manual gearbox. Porsche really have become the last hope for old school fans of driving, such as me. They come at quite a price, but they dont have much competition any more.

Oh, I thought by revisiting its roots it would be a cheaper version, like the originals low entry level price.
