The spyder is the most extreme version of the 918 Boxster based on the Cayman GT4 it is lowest and lightest in its category. Its design is distinct and adds to its exclusivity. It has give or take 50 more bhp than the boxster GTS and more torque. Think of it as the RS model of the boxsters.
Porsche have addressed the roof on this new model making it much easier to stow and erect when required and can be used right up to the Spyder's top speed on 180 mph.
Exclusivity is the name of the game with this Boxster. Is there anything else on the market that can really compete with it at the moment? As with the recent trend, due to the exclusivity, premiums are to be expected over Porsche's recommended retail price.
What a great looking car. Exciting times are ahead for Porsche with their prototype electric car making its debut this week.
