Want to feel old? It's been 25 years since the first Porsche Boxster came out. To celebrate its two-seater roadster, Porsche created a special edition anniversary model: the 2021 Boxster 25.

The original Boxster was aimed at younger customers who were perhaps new to the Porsche brand. It was a mid-engined roadster, which is a layout that carries over to today. 

The Boxster 25 has elements that serve as a tribute to the original Boxster concept car that kicked off the whole thing, including the use of a Neodyme copper-like color, according to a press release. Porsche will only make 1,250 of the anniversary models worldwide.

Pricing for the Boxster 25 starts at $98,600 MSRP, which is a steep price when you consider that a normal Boxster starts at $62,000. True, you get a few more hardware additions, but are you willing to pay nearly $40,000 more for a special edition anniversary model?
