A reversing camera is now standard-issue across the line-up, from base 220kW Cayman and Boxster through to the 257kW mid-grade Boxster and Cayman S and the 269kW performance flagship GTS. Useful, but of more interest to rev-heads will be the news that the previously optional Sports Exhaust also becomes standard for both the base and S variants of Porsche’s mid-engined sports cars.
The Sports Exhaust brings a switchable set of flaps that restrict engine noise to civilised levels when closed, or crank up the decibels when opened. They can be manually switched via a button on the centre console, or automatically whenever the engine speed rises above 3500rpm.
The Boxster S’ previously standard 19-inch alloys also become the default wheel for base model Boxsters and Caymans – which have been shod with 18-inch wheels up until now - while the S variants of both cars step up to 20-inch wheels pinched from the 911 Carrera S.
Changes apply to cars ordered from September 6, with the first updated versions slated to arrive in Australia from November. Crucially, none of the additions result in a price increase across the full 718 Boxster and Cayman range..
