Launched! Porsche Boxster Spyder
What you see here is the lightest Porsche available from Stuttgart – 1,275 kg to be exact – set to debut in February 2010. At the heart of it will be a 3.4 liter six cylinder engine pumping out 320 hp and mated to the PDK (Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) transmission. Having 10 additional ponies over the standard Boxster S, this car is no slouch. 0-100 km/h in approx. 4.8 seconds makes it a force to be reckoned with within the Porsche family.
Styling wise, the car is unique in that it will come with a low-roof soft top and low side windows to replicate the original 356 Spyder look. For the exterior, there are revised front and rear bumpers, unique wheels, and 2 rear humps on the deck lid.
The interior will have sports seats, a body colored center console and one of my favorite touches, the reddish leather straps in place of door handles. Classy.
It won’t be cheap as the car is expected to eclipse the $80,000 mark.
