Porsche is giving the base versions of 718 Boxster and Cayman a little extra style with the straightforwardly named Style Edition.
The 718 Cayman Style Edition is priced at $125,800 before on-road costs, while the 718 Boxster Style Edition is priced at $128,600 before on-roads, or $3000 more than the entry-level 718s they’re based on.
They’re available to order now, with deliveries commencing in the second half of 2023.
The Style Edition models ride on 20-inch 718 Spyder wheels and feature black exhaust outlets and high-gloss silver ‘Porsche’ lettering.
The 718 Boxster Style Edition gets ‘Boxster’ lettering embossed above the side windows.
Porsche is offering the 718 Style Edition with two contrast packages – one black, one white – which feature decorative stripes at the front and lettering on the side, as well as black and white high-gloss finishes for the wheels and rear badging.
They’re available in the distinctive Ruby Star Neo, a modern interpretation of the Ruby Star finish found in the 964-series Porsche 911 Carrera RS.
Inside, they feature black leather upholstery with Crayon stitching, with illuminated stainless steel sill panels and embossed Porsche crests on the headrests.
Standard equipment on Style Edition models also include:
- Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights
- Porsche Dynamic Light System
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Reversing camera with front and rear parking sensors
- Keyless entry and start
- Apple CarPlay
- Satellite navigation

As is typical of a Porsche, however, there’s a wide range of extra-cost options that can be added. Power steering Plus is a no-cost option.
Style Edition models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre boxer four-cylinder engine producing 220kW of power and 380Nm of torque.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard, with a seven-speed PDK optional. Opting for the auto cuts the 0-100km/h time down from 5.1 seconds to 4.9 seconds.
