A refreshing reminder of what truly brilliant driver’s cars really feel like, the Type 981 Boxster Spyder references Porsche’s 1950’s minimalist masterpiece, the 550 Spyder.
This smile inducing street machine is all about lightness, precision handling and brilliantly linear power delivery.
In their 2015 review TopGear revelled: “The Boxster Spyder is, by all the measures that matter most, magnificent”.
Using the 3.8 litre direct injection six-cylinder from the 911 Carrera S producing 370hp at 6,700rpm (45 more than the Boxster GTS) this hair-raising giant killer can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds with a booming soundtrack to match.
The swooping rear lid is made of aluminium, the hood has an unheated polymer rear window, the seats are carbon-shelled buckets, Sport Chrono package is standard, it has dynamic engine and transmission mounts for extra stability, there’s a mechanical locking diff and torque-vectoring, the fully electric steering is borrowed from the range topping 911 Turbo, you open the doors using old-skool fabric straps and the Spyder top saves 11kg’s in weight whilst keeping the centre of gravity nice and low too.
Why don’t all cars feel this good?
