Just like they did with the 911, Porsche offered the addition of the Boxster “T”. This model is a reduction down to the “bare essentials”, with removal of Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and is instead replaced out with Sports Seats Plus, 20-inch Carrera S wheels, door pull loops, and a GT steering wheel with mode switch. PDK is still an option for this minimalist model if you wanted to opt for the auto, however this model is clearly aimed at connecting the driver closer with the car, so I am sure the 6-speed manual would be recommended. It is not the fastest in class, but will be more of the more authentic and fun to drive Boxsters.
