When you get in, it’s immediately apparent. Whoever wants to own an original roadster will have to make sacrifices. Door storage compart-
ments? No chance. Conventional door release levers? Ditto. But why should we have fitted levers, when door pulls are so much more evocative of our racing tradition? And, more importantly, they are, by nature, weight-saving. By no means trivial details, they are part of a considered and, in the roadster segment, superior strategy: purposeful lightweight design.
It’s a solution that also includes sports bucket seats with seat centres in Alcantara. The result is a further 12 kg reduction, and a way for the driver to experience more acutely and more immediately the power that pushes the Boxster Spyder to the limit.
Despite our strict adherence to purity of design, we wanted to make one concession: the windscreen with grey top-tint and the wind deflector are standard. A little indulgence that makes open-top driving that little more comfortable.
