2008 Porsche Boxster RS 60 Spyder
Recalling its 1960 racing victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring with a silver-painted Type 718 RS 60 Spyder, Porsche unveiled the limited edition Boxster RS 60 Spyder clad in GT silver metallic paint.
Compared to a standard Boxster S, a redesigned front end and 19-inch wheels placed more prominently in the wheel arches are the main exterior changes, which also include a black windshield frame and red taillight lenses. Inside, the race car theme is evoked by a coverless instrument cluster, with the gauges also wearing GT silver metallic paint set more widely apart.
The limited run of 1,960 cars worldwide echoes the victory year. Fewer than 800 will be available in the U.S., starting March 22, for a suggested price of $64,900.
