Porsche has whipped the wraps off the 718 Boxster and Cayman Style Edition models. The German marque says these “exclusive” variants are for customers who attach particular importance to a striking design for their vehicle. 

Style Edition

So, what sets these models apart from their stablemates? Well, for starters, these editions are “clearly distinguishable” thanks to (no-cost) contrast packages, one available in black and the other in white. Both packages include decorative stripes at the front and “Porsche” lettering on the sides. Depending on the package, the model designations and 20-inch 718 Spyder wheels are finished in high-gloss black or white. The sports tailpipes are finished in black. 

The Style Edition models’ cabins are trimmed in black leather with ‘chalk’ contrast stitching. The stainless steel door sill panels illuminate. The Porsche crest can be found on the headrests. Staying with the interior, the steering wheel and pews feature heating functionality. Dual-zone climate control is present, as is Apple CarPlay screen mirroring. In addition to these items, the Style Edition variants also have cruise control. 

Style Edition

The Style Edition derivatives are based on the entry-level, 2.0-litre four-cylinder versions of the 718 Boxster and Cayman. The mid-mounted engine produces 220 kW and 380 Nm of torque. As standard, the powertrain is coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is optional.

Equipped with the manual cog swapper, the Style Edition models sprint to the three-figure marker from a standstill in 5.1 seconds. Equipped with the PDK, the 0-100 km/h sprint time is 4.7 seconds. The top speed is rated at 275 km/h.
