Introduced by Porsche a couple of years ago, the Boxster Spyder, powered by a 3.8-litre flat six-cylinder engine, had its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show.
At the New York International Auto Show Porsche launched its latest offering to the world of convertible cars – the Boxster Spyder. Blame it on having more textile in the roof, the car might not be your ideal choice for a long drive in a rainy weather. You can’t even try to look cool by folding and unfolding it at the traffic signals because the roof has to be installed or uninstalled with your own hands and not at the touch of a button. To make it more driver-friendly and to make your friends look down on you, it comes only with manual shifts.
The 3.8-litre flat six-cylinder engine that sits in the middle of the car produces 375bhp of maximum power and propels the car to do 0-100km/h in mere 4.5 seconds. For the speed aficionados out there, the top speed has been restricted to 290km/h.
The Boxster Spyder provides luxury in a manner that no Boxster has been able to provide so far. The experience is made pleasurable with the help of the bucket seats for both the occupants. But the standard equipment has been provided with neither a radio nor air conditioning, but can be opted as accessories.
The car will be officially launched sometime in July, but for those who can’t wait, it can be ordered now at the Porsche dealerships in selected countries.
