2008 987.2?

Hi - just joined the forum. I just drove a 2015 Boxster S w/PDK for 400 twisty miles and was very impressed but I'm seeking a less "hi-tech" vehicle and plan to be shopping for a 2009-11 987. I currently drive a 2013 Audi S5/with paddles and a 2001 BMW Z3 3.0i w/manual.

I believe that the Boxster 987 was refreshed in 2009 with more hp and other changes. That seems to be referred to as 987.2 or 987 2nd Generation. Does anyone know if the 987.2 can also be found vehicles that are sold as 2008's? Or is its first US appearance only in 2009-labled cars? If there are any 2008 987.2 around is there a simple visual styling cue (interior or exterior) that I can see in a photo that clearly designates if it's a 987 gen 1 or gen 2?

Hi Marco. Posted elsewhere. Never heard of the 987.2 To my knowledge, there is no such thing. Porsche tweaks HP every year, gradually increasing.
That said, my 2008 RS60 Spyder has 315 HP, which wasn't matched by a regular S until 2012 or 2013 (if my aging memory serves). It kicks butt.
