ATLANTA, AUGUST 4, 2008 - A comprehensive list of enhancements, led by more powerful engines

and unique visual features, will distinguish the new, limited-edition Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2

and Porsche Cayman S Sport mid-engine sports cars when they are introduced in October by

Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) and Porsche Cars Canada.



Porsche will build 500 Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and 700 Cayman S Sport models, and

less than 50 of the Boxster S and approximately 100 of the Cayman S limited-edition sports cars -

each one with a glove box plaque bearing its number from the exclusive series - will reach U.S.

shores. Both cars will be available through authorized U.S. Porsche dealers this October, and the

Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 and Cayman S Sport U.S. MSRPs are $66,900 and $69,900,

respectively.



A range of standard equipment, beyond the eight-horsepower bump to 303 from the 3.4-Liter engine,

further sets these variants apart from the standard Porsche Cayman S and Boxster S.



The Cayman S Sport's appearance emulates that of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, beginning with

standard GT3 RS exterior colors of green or orange, which are enhanced by GT3 RS touches like


black rims, exterior mirrors and air-intake grilles and a black interior design package. Like the GT3

RS, the sides of the new car feature its model designation, "Cayman S" in black letters. In addition to

orange and green, the Cayman S Sport will be available in black, Guards Red, Speed Yellow, Carrara

White or Arctic Silver.



Performance upgrades standard on the Cayman S Sport beyond the engine include Porsche Active

Suspension Management (PASM) with a 10mm-lowered suspension, as well as 5mm spacers on the

19-inch SportDesign wheels.



Additional standard features include Bi-Xenon headlamps, the Sports Chrono Package, sports seats,

alcantara finish for the gearshift lever, hand brake and the rim of the GT3 steering wheel, as well as a

sports exhaust system featuring a twin-chamber tailpipe.



Spotting the new Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2 will be easy - look for the Carrara White mid-

engine Porsche roadster with white finishes on the star-spoke, painted 19-inch SportDesign wheels,

side air intakes, center console and instrument dials. Contrasting the white features are grey stripes
