Porsche Splashlight Boxster: One of a kind

Porsche Splashlight Boxster
The Porsche Splashlight Boxster is a one of a kind styling exercise. Love that bright orange which is usually used for the 911 GT3 RS!
Porsche designers, true to their form-follows-function roots, added a performance-enhancing sport exhaust system with visually unique twin tips. Safety bars, designed to help protect occupants, stand out when dressed in 911 GT3 RS orange paint. And the SportDesign package that includes spoiler lips that mount on the standard front trim, an automatically extending and redesigned rear spoiler, and modified rear trim with integrated diffuser not only provides a more striking and sportier appearance, it also improves aerodynamics by reducing lift on both the front and rear axles without increasing aerodynamic drag.

Complimenting the orange paint are black painted wheels with the rims in silver. Other elements in black include the exterior side mirrors, the front and side air inlets, the car's model designation on the rear deck, and a black convertible top.

Black carries over to the seats, carpet, dash, door panels and other surrounding soft surfaces. Adding to the performance theme is the use of Alcantara trim, a suede-like material used on performance Porsches like the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS. Alcantara is pleasant to touch, but it also helps occupants stay planted in the interior during aggressive driving. Alcantara trim is used on the three-spoke steering wheel from the 911 GT3 RS, the seat inserts and handbrake lever.
