2023 Porsche 718 Style Edition Cayman and Boxster revealed
German supercar maker Porsche has taken the wraps off the special variant of the 2023 Cayman and Boxster, called the "Style Edition." Both cars feature color-coordinated exterior and interior elements. The vehicles can be opted with an all-new Ruby Star Neo paint scheme, which is a modern interpretation of the Ruby Star color last seen on the legendary 964 generation of 911 Carrera RS.
Why does this story matter?
- Apart from the iconic 911 range, Porsche is also known for the legendary Cayman and Boxster sports cars under its 718 line-up.
- The 718 series was initially created for open-wheel Formula racing. However, the German marque started developing road-legal versions of its race cars from the late 1960s.
- The 2023 coupe and cabriolet models are based on the brand's MMB (Modular Mid-engine) platform
The cars flaunt an all-LED lighting setup and 'Porsche' decals
The 2023 Porsche 718 Style Edition Cayman and Boxster sport a sculpted hood, swept-back LED headlights with DRLs, a wide air dam, and a raked windscreen. The former gets a typical coupe-like roofline, while the latter has a retractable soft top. The cars are flanked by signature 'Porsche' decals on the doors and 20-inch gloss black wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights grace the rear end.
They are backed by 2.0-liter, turbocharged, flat-four engine
Both the Cayman and Boxster Style Editions are powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, flat-four engine that generates a maximum power of 296hp and a peak torque of 380Nm. Transmission duties are handled by either a 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed "PDK" dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Both cars feature premium leather upholstery and illuminated door sills
Inside, the Style Edition Cayman and Boxster have a sporty two-seater cabin with premium black leather upholstery on the door panels and ventilated seats with chalk-colored stitching. They feature automatic climate control, illuminated door sills, a multifunctional steering wheel with paddle shifters, a digital instrument cluster, and a 7.0-inch infotainment system. Passengers' safety is ensured by multiple airbags on both cars.
