The new top model of the Boxster range retains the unique and unmistakable character of the previous Spyder, which has already attained cult status.
For example, the classic roadster top is still opened and closed by hand, and the Boxster Spyder is only available with a manual transmission, benefiting both weight savings and driver enjoyment.
Staying true to roadster DNA, the Boxster Spyder offers a traditional sports-car driving experience combined with truly exceptional performance.
This includes a firm sport suspension with a 20-mm lower ride height, brakes taken from the 911 Carrera S, more direct steering, and a 3.8-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with an output of 375 hp, culminating in a genuine sports car experience with outstanding driving dynamics.
It is the lightest model of the current Boxster line, and the most powerful Boxster to date.
Two prominent streamliners that extend down along the sweeping rear lid behind the headrests pay tribute to the 718 Spyder from the 1960s.
The manually operated, lightweight top is suitable for everyday use with an electric clasp, while bringing to mind roadsters from the past.
The driver and passenger sit in standard Sport Seats Plus, while the new steering wheel with a diameter of 360 mm (compared to 370 mm in other Boxster models) helps ensure the mid-engine roadster can be driven precisely and with great agility.
In line with the model’s traditional roadster character, neither a radio nor an air conditioner is included as standard equipment in order to reduce weight.
However, both can be ordered as optional equipment at no cost.
