Top Down is Only Way to Enjoy New Porsche Spyder

Hear Exhaust Echo With Wind in Your Hair

Driving the 2016 Porsche Boxter Spyder with the top up is a little like ordering chicken fried steak without the mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s still very good, but you’re losing a lot in the translation. The first incarnation of the Boxter Spyder convertible came with a top that required a fleet of Army engineers to put up and down. Thankfully Porsche has rectified that in the latest manual version, which now requires only six steps to change position as opposed to 15 in the 2011 version. Once the top is down, you can show off the best profile of this luscious sport coupe that features lines that could only come from the designers at Porsche. See the new Boxter Spyder for yourself by taking a trip to Porsche of Tucson.

New Version Features 375 Horsepower Flat Six

By borrowing the engine from the 911 Carrerra S and fine tuning it to pump out 375 horsepower, Porsche has created the most powerful Boxter ever. It also cut around 72 pounds, making it the lightest Boxter. Add the combination and you get a recipe for excitement. A firm suspension system give you excellent response when taking the car through its paces on a challenging road with hairpin turns. Uneven roads may make the wheels bounce a bit, but the body holds steady and is easy to control. It takes you until about 6,700 rpm for the maximum horsepower to kick in, exercising the Boxter’s mighty roar to full volume. There is such a range to second gear that it’s perfect for cruising through small towns until you can get back on the road and unleash the beast.

Inside and Out, Design and Materials Spell Porsche

Designers didn’t forget to put all the legendary pieces on the Porsche Boxter Spyder that you can find in other Porsche models. From the upswept headlights to the bulges behind the mini roll bars, car aficionados will have no trouble identifying who made this car. Just in case, Spyder logos sit atop both rear quarter panels. On the interior, trim in the color of the body is used just enough to accentuate the use of luxurious leather that runs throughout. Well-bolstered sport buckets will hold you in position as you whip through curves. Instrumentation is placed for easy access so you can focus on the road. Take a test drive for yourself at Porsche of Tucson.

It’s not a 918, but…

While the Boxter Spyder is not the high performance convertible that the Porsche 918 Spyder is, chances are it’s performance will be good enough when you consider the price difference. Starting at just over $82,000, one can’t say the Boxter is cheap, but it certainly looks inexpensive when compared to the $845,000 price tag of the 918 Spyder. Do you want a Porsche convertible that’s tons of fun without spending all of your inheritance? Give the Boxter Spyder a try.
