Porsche Boxster Spyder at the 2015 New York Auto Show
Porsche is beginning the 2015 convertible season by celebrating the world premiere of the new Boxster Spyder at this year’s New York International Auto Show. The classic fabric roof is opened and closed by hand, and the sports car is only available with a manual transmission. One for the purists, then?
The Boxster Spyder offers a traditional sports car driving experience but with contemporary performance. This means a firm sports suspension with a 20-mm lower ride height, brakes taken from the 911 Carrera, more direct steering, and a 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine with an output of 375 hp.
Drivers and passengers can look forward to outstanding driving dynamics in the lightest yet most powerful Boxster available. It only takes around 4.5 seconds for the Boxster Spyder to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h; the model’s top speed is 290 km/h.
More so than in any other Boxster, the interior of the new model creates an atmosphere that elicits a feeling of pure driving pleasure. The driver and passenger sit in light sport bucket seats with large side supports, while the new steering wheel with a diameter of 360 mm helps to ensure that the mid-engine roadster can be driven precisely and with great agility.
The Boxster Spyder can be ordered now, with the first vehicles arriving in the UAE from August onwards. Prices go North of AED 287,600.
