Porsche Boxster Spyder revealed just in time for summer driving

Porsche has unveiled the new Boxster Spyder at the New York Auto Show, featuring very similar updates as the recently unveiled Cayman GT4.

The bumpers carry over from the GT4, there is also a new unique engine cover, new sport seats and a steering wheel from the GT4.

The biggest visual update is the roof styling inspired by Porsche’s historical Spyder models. The fully retractable roof continues to be operated manually, but is a long step forward from previous versions as there is no need for Scout Leader-levels of canvas manipulation to pack the roof beneath the sculpted rear panel.

To keep the weight down the Spyder version has no radio and air conditioning, but if you need them you can order them both as no cost options.

Power comes from a 370bhp 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine linked exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission, enabling the new top of the range Boxster model to accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds on to a top speed of 180mph.

370bhp makes it just 10bhp less powerful than the Cayman GT4 while offering the same 310 lb-ft of torque.

Other notable changes include improved steering system, high-performance brakes from the 911 Carrera and a sports suspension that reduces the ride height by 20mm.

Prices start from £60,459 making it around £8,000 more expensive than the £52,879 Boxster GTS.
