Used as a daily then no but as average boxster ownership is 4k miles a year i reckon youll be ok
Owners of these low editions models use them as a weekend suns out car.

If previous anniversary editions are anything to go by then this would keep.its value better
But not by much if you go by previous rs60 and 550 editions!
Previous editions there was no fast take up either.
Better off saving the extra cash and buying a Gts!
The 718 spyder is the only 718 where residuals will remain firm long term

Times have changed .
It is a GTS with all the kit you normally spec?
As you said no fast take up.on previous models ,not the case now.

I must be the only person that thinks it looks terrible. It'd only missing more chrome. leopard skin seat covers and window tints. Spinners optional

Not the only one. I'm thinking who would choose this over their own spec?

Other than limited edition, what are the advantages? Is it any cheaper?

GTS 4.0 and 25 Edition are the SAME PRICE (if choosing the same config)

So the question for me is:

a) Which styling looks better
b) Which one's going to depreciate considerably less, if either

I get the colour coding, but it is the side vent that jars the most for me.

Launch colour safest to go with long term rather than going with black or white or swapping interior to black.

I’d be tempted to order replacement side vents in silver and keep original ones boxed for later refitting if necessary.

The rest is okay. It seems a nice way to have something a bit more unique if getting a GTS anyway.

I think it’s hideous smile and looks like one of those boosters that pops up on eBay that someone has “personalised”.

Wheels look like Japanese 90’s multi fit specials with an odd offset.
Colour coding looks like a true afterthought.

Zero interest other than who let their kid draw on design documents?

Exactly ref the 911 50th edition my friend bought a year a 2015 one private sale in 2016 for 70k. Would be worth more trade now with 26k miles . So apart from servicing its cost him nothing in nearly 5 years.
Only 1963 made world wide ,101 in the uk . Basically a carrerra s with cloth seats and normal specced extras and fuchs wheels and special badging.
Slated at the time as not worth it over a base s?

It was rather nice. Came across one at Le Mans and the details looked lovely.

No you're not..

One good thing is it's limited edition so thank God there's not alot of chance of seeing them day to day.

Those wheels...hardly the statement that the 987 Spyder wheels were!

Never ceases to amaze those who buy into these so called specials ! Now if you were looking to buy say a new 718 and you actually like the styling and its not toooverpriced to regular model ie 718/6gts then it's a no brainer, but to buy secondhand something like a 991.1/50 because it's limited and paying a premium of more than circa 10% over a regular 991.1 is madness, plus the 991.1 is not noted as being the best drivers 911!
There are now so many Porsche "specials" I think if anything it cheapens many of them and long term the prices will fall as at present so called specials are in a price bubble

It’s a shame they didn’t bring back a period colour for the Boxster 25, arena red or Zenith blue anyone?

But they do so if you have one and dont or lose very little money during ownership thats a big plus.
At the moment it doesn't seem to cheapen them.
Local OPC has had 5 enquiries already?
