New Boxter Spyder Available for Order


Sporty Convertible Debuts at New York Auto Show

The newest member of the Porsche Boxter line is the second-generation Spyder, a roadster that delivers phenomenal performance while maintaining the character of previous versions of the Spyder. With an engine delivering 375 horsepower, the Boxter Spyder delivers a thrilling driving experience amplified by a sport-tuned suspension and brakes taken from the 911 Carerra S. The Spyder takes only 4.3 seconds to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour, culminating at a top speed of 180 miles per hour. Porsche of Tucson is taking orders for the new Spyder now for delivery later this fall.

Stays True to Previous Spyder Incarnations

Introduced first as the 550 Spyder at the 1953 Paris Auto Show, the little Porsche convertible was used first solely in racing events. The most famous Spyder is undoubtedly the one actor James Dean drove to his death in 1955 by crashing into another car during a road race. The 550 Spyder is one of the most reproduced sports cars ever, with its bug eye headlights and sloping lines. The new Spyder is much the same size, with more angular features. Streamliners that follow the rear lid behind the headrests are a direct tribute to the 718 Spyder, a classic Porsche from the 1960s. The manually operated convertible top not only saves on weight due to the lack of a motor and operating hardware, but also relates back to sportsters of the past.

Standard Features Limited to Save Weight

You’ll find no goodies like a stereo or air conditioner as standard equipment on the Porsche Boxter version of the Spyder. Porsche did all it can to limit the weight on this little vehicle to increase performance. If you can’t live without your tunes and some cool air, both features are available as an option. The Porsche Communication Navigation infotainment system is another available option that adds a little weight but offers state-of-the-art audio and navigation features. The starting price on the Spyder is about $83,000, including the destination charge. Talk to the folks at Porsche of Tucson for more details on ordering yours now for October delivery.

Boxter and Boxter S Available Now

If you can’t wait until October for the Spyder, consider looking at the Boxter and Boxter S. Although they both feature a little less horsepower than the new Spyder, they offer a sporty alternative for you and your partner to get your hair in the wind. Check out the Boxters today at Porsche of Tucson.
