Porsche celebrates 300,000 sales of Boxster/Cayman

After getting a drive in the Porsche Cayman S, Car and SUV became a big fan of the model and the platform-sharing Boxster. It’s no surprise that we aren’t alone with news that Porsche has ticked up 300,000 sales of the Cayman and Boxster models.

It’s taken 15 years to reach this milestone since the very first Boxster roadster left the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen plant in Germany. Most of the vehicles have been in convertible Boxster form with the hard top Cayman not contributing until the 2006 model year.

To celebrate Porsche dressed up the 300,000th vehicle real pretty. It’s a Boxster Spyder with a Platinum Silver paint job and Carrera red leather trim. This hot ride is most likely set to be sold to a lucky local owner in Germany.

We’re big fans of Porsche’s Boxster and Cayman, and it appears we’re not alone. Porsche is celebrating 300,000 Cayman and Boxster models sold, almost exactly 15 years after the first roadster left the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen plant in Germany. The lion’s share of those sports cars have been convertibles – the hard-hatted Cayman didn’t join the party until 2005 as a 2006 model.

To put an exclamation point on production vehicle number 300,000, Porsche went all-out by building a Boxster Spyder with Platinum Silver paint and Carrera red leather interior. The undoubtedly hot ride will go to a lucky customer in Germany.
