The options listed below are not necessarily currently available. These are the options that have shown up in Porsche option lists for the Boxster at various times. The information is based on the latest information that the editors have acquired,

While the price for the base car remains relatively constant from year to year, prices for the options change. Prices for the various options increased about 2.5% between the 1997 and 1998 model years on average. Prices shown are not necessarily the current price, and in some cases the Dealer Cost came from a different source than the current price. See the RAQ for latest option pricing.

The required and conflicting options lists, although they came from Porsche literature, are suspect. They should be checked with your dealer or Porsche before finalizing your order. The true test is having Porsche accept the order with your option list.
