New Porsche Boxster Spyder is Revealed.

The new 2015 Porsche Boxster Spyder is unveiled at the New York Motor Show and is considered to be the lightest and most powerful version of the car yet created.

The powerful 370bhp 3.8-litre flat six engine allows the Spyder to sprint from 0-62mph in 4.5sec and reach a top speed of 180mph while the sports exhaust system provides an even more resonant sound at the press of a button.

According to Porsche, the design of the new Boxster Spyder is ‘Unfiltered’ meaning that ‘…every detail of the exterior brings you closer to the true driving experience.’

The  Spyder’s most notable feature is its new roof, which as with the previous model, the lightweight fabric roof is opened and closed by hand, although it is released electrically. Other striking features are the black Bi-xenon headlights, the SportDesign exterior mirrors, and the 20-inch wheels designed especially for the new Spyder.

The interior has an impressive minimalistic design style. Air-conditioning and radio are optional, as Porsche wanted to have ‘no destructions’. Two new lightweight sports seats are fitted with large side bolsters and there is a new 360mm steering wheel which is designed to ensure that the Boxster Spyder can be driven “precisely and with great agility”, according to Porsche.

The starting price for the new Boxster Spyder, which is available to order now, is £60,459 and will reach the UK showrooms in July.
