Ruby Star Neo looks like a colourway fresh off the streets of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City but it is in fact Porsche’s latest lick for their new 718 Boxster ‘Style’ Edition. Inspired by Rubystone Red aka Ruby Star, the magenta-come-pink debuted in 1989 and appeared most famously on the 964 Carrera RS, and on a number of 911, 928 and 968 models until the mid-nineties, as well as the 991 GT3.

The new Porsche 718 Style Edition models, will present two new aesthetic-focused packages for the 718 Cayman & 718 Boxster, featuring fresh colours and harmonious contrast packages. With the Style Edition, Porsche is presenting an exclusive variant for customers “who attach particular importance to a striking design” for their dream vehicle.

Porsche 718 Style Edition Boxster and Cayman

If the rather gauche Ruby Star Neo doesn’t tickle your fancy, the Cayman variant arrives in Arctic Grey, with contrasting black accents. Regardless of colour, the new 718 Style Edition models are clearly distinguishable amongst their peers, sitting on 20-inch 718 Spyder wheels with hub covers featuring coloured Porsche Crests. The Style Edition is also recognisable by its black sport tailpipes and ‘Porsche’ lettering in high-gloss silver. On the 718 Boxster Style Edition, ‘Boxster’ lettering is embossed above the side windows and is added to the convertible roof as an exclusive label.

Inside, the Style Edition models feature a leather package in black including contrast stitching in Crayon, illuminated door sill panels in stainless steel and the Porsche Crest on the headrests.
