Sporting same design inspiration seen in the mid-engined Porsche 718 sports car seen in the 1950s and 1960s, the new 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models were launched earlier this year. Now, as if the two cars were not exclusive enough, the Stuttgart based brand has added an Exclusive package for those who are always in the need for more.

The two continue to be powered by same new turbocharged four cylinder engines as on the regular ones.
