    Porsche is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Boxster mid-engine sports car with a special edition based on the 2021 718 Boxster GTS 4.0, meaning there’s a high-revving naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six on tap. The Boxster 25 is limited to 1250 cars and has styling touches reminiscent of the Boxster concept car (pictured below) that was revealed at the 1993 Detroit auto show.

    Like the original concept, which shared its face with the 996-generation 911, the Boxster 25 has copper trim on the front and side air intakes, badging, and wheels. The fuel cap is adorned with “Porsche” script and finished in an aluminum look, as is the standard sport exhaust system. The car comes in GT Silver, Jet Black, and Carrera White color choices, and they’ll all look stunning paired with the five-spoke copper 20-inch wheels. The sport seats are trimmed in Bordeaux Red leather and complemented with a red fabric convertible top and a brushed aluminum interior.

    The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six spins up 394 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission (#SaveTheManuals), although a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is available. In our testing, a six-speed-manual-equipped Boxster GTS 4.0 launched to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and ripped through the quarter-mile in 12.0 seconds at 118 mph. Porsche claims a top speed of 182 mph. The original 986-generation Boxster was powered by a 217-hp 2.7-liter flat-six.

    The limited-edition Boxster 25 comes with the Sport Chrono package, which adds the PDK dual-clutch gearbox, launch control, and a steering-wheel-mounted drive mode selector. Porsche’s active suspension, which can lower the car by 0.4 inch, is standard, as is a limited-slip differential.

    The 2021 Boxster 25 is available to order now starting at $99,950—$9700 more than the starting price of a 2021 718 Boxster GTS 4.0. They’ll start arriving at dealerships in the spring.
