A special edition of the 987 limited to 500 examples worldwide, the 2008 Porsche Boxster S Design Edition 2 comes finished in Carrara White with matching wheels, grey Porsche Design graphics, painted interior trim, and a more powerfully tuned flat-six engine borrowed from the Cayman S Sport. This Boxster S is one of only 32 examples reportedly delivered to the U.S. and comes equipped with the Sport Chrono Package, Bose High-End Sound Package, heated seats, and automatic climate control. It was purchased new by the current owner from Boardwalk Porsche of Plano, Texas, and is now being offered for auction out of Indiana with under 6,500 miles showing on the odometer.
The Design Edition 2 is distinguished by Carrara White paint and grey Porsche Design stripes positioned lengthwise along the body. It features painted side air intakes, a Stone Grey convertible roof, aluminum-look rolls bars, and body-colored 19” SportDesign wheels. This example rides on original Bridgestone Potenza tires. The seller notes the car has been carefully maintained as a collector’s item and was professionally transported on an enclosed trailer upon their move from Texas to Indiana. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is appointed with Black leather upholstery and Carrara White painted trim spanning the dashboard and center console. Other details include Carrara White instrument dials, Porsche-crested headrests, an Alcantara shifter, an Alcantara-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, an aluminum footrest, and stainless-steel door entry guards with Porsche Design Edition 2 lettering. A limitation badge is also mounted on the glovebox reading “Limited Edition Nr. 228/500”. Other features include heated front seats, automatic climate control, the Sport Chrono Package, Bose High-End Sound Package, self-dimming mirrors & rain sensor, the Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, and a Porsche CDR-24 AM/FM/CD stereo.
This limited-edition Boxster S is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.4-liter flat-six engine featuring a revised exhaust system for an output of up to 303 HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission while stopping power comes from red 4-piston fixed brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors at each corner. The seller states a new battery has been installed and routine oil changes have been completed throughout their ownership.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner’s manuals, some maintenance records, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This is a unique, beautiful, and marvelous car in perfectly new condition. A rare gem in the Porsche world. I would love to see it go to someone who will treasure it as much as I have. Thank you for visiting my auction. Good luck!”
