March 24, 2006 In an age of increasing customisation, owners of Boxster and Boxster S roadster models will be pleased to know that Porsche is now offering a SportDesign package for the beasties. This new individualization option comprises spoiler lips for mounting on the standard front trim, an automatically extending, redesigned rear spoiler, and a modified rear trim with an integrated diffuser.

In addition to providing a particularly striking and sporty appearance, the new SportDesign package improves aerodynamics. The lifting forces on the front and rear axles are reduced without air resistance being increased, which further supports the vehicle’s finely-tuned, roadster-specific balance. The shape of the rear trim with the integrated diffuser evokes a conscious association with the Carrera GT high-performance sports car. The automatically extending rear spoiler, which has been designed according to the divided wing principle, contributes further to this association.

All of the SportDesign package’s attractive components are painted in the vehicle’s exterior colour, and blend in harmoniously with the Boxster’s dynamic visuals.

Porsche is offering the SportDesign package worldwide. In Germany, it can be ordered from Porsche Exclusive for 4,060 Euros on purchase of a new vehicle. For retrofitting, it is available from Porsche Tequipment for 3,422 Euros plus labour.
