We are pleased to present this collectible 2008 Porsche 987 Boxster S "RS 60 Spyder Edition" finished in GT Silver Metallic over a full Carrera Red natural leather interior. Commemorating the Porsche Type 718 RS 60 that took victory in the 1960 12 Hours of Sebring, this special edition Boxster represents #1568 of only 1,960 examples produced in total, and approximately 800 examples for the U.S. With increased horsepower, Sport Exhaust, Sport Chrono Package Plus, and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) equipped from the factory, this limited-production model offers enhanced performance to match its namesake. Showing approximately 61k miles on the odometer with routine maintenance and recent service, this RS 60 Spyder Edition is now being offered by its seller out of Georgia.
All RS 60 Spyder Edition Boxster’s are finished in GT Silver Metallic. The exterior on this example is stated to be in great condition aside from a small wear mark on the red convertible top and a small scuff on the right rear fender above the wheel (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The right front fender is also said to have been refinished under prior ownership. Distinguishing characteristics of this special edition include an aggressive Porsche SportDesign front valance, a black-framed windscreen, all-red taillight lenses, and 19” Sport Design wheels. The seller reports approximately 70% tread remaining on the tires.
Inside, you will find a full Carrera Red natural leather interior that is stated to be in very nice condition. Exclusive RS 60 Spyder Edition features include an exposed instrument cluster, seatbelts in silver, stainless-steel door sills with RS 60 Spyder designations, and on the glove box, a numbered plaque displaying this car’s unique production number of #1568/1,960. Commanding an original MSRP of over $74k, this well-appointed Boxster also showcases the Bose High-End Sound Package, heated front seats, self-dimming mirrors & rain sensor, PCM 2.1 w/ extended navigation, the Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, Porsche Windstop (deflector), automatic climate control, Sport Chrono Package Plus, and a remote 6-disc CD Changer. All gauges and electrical components are reported to be fully functional.
Power comes from a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 3.4 L flat-six engine that, as part of the RS 60 Edition, features a specially tuned Sport Exhaust System which helps amount to an output of 303 HP. The rear wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission that allows acceleration from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5 seconds. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and wheel spacers are standard on this special edition and this particular example also features the Sport Chrono Package Plus. Stated to be in excellent running order and up to date on all routine maintenance with recent service covering new fluids, filters, a battery, and electric front trunk switch, this Boxster S is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
This sale will include a clean title. Paying tribute to Porsche’s racing heritage while offering premium factory features and a 6-speed manual gearbox, this special edition Boxster S is an enthusiast’s dream come true.
