Driving a Boxster Spyder is a commitment. A commitment to unconditional driving pleasure. A commitment to that which matters to roadster enthusiasts: tangible and visible dynamics.
As ever, our designers set themselves extremely high standards. The objective was to convey a clear message from the very first glance, to give an outward expression of what a Porsche driver expects: authenticity, precise handling and sheer liberation.
How? By remaining faithful to a fundamental Porsche principle: the combination of a consistently lightweight design and intelligent performance. By dispensing with the superfluous and retaining the most important element: the original roadster spirit.
With the Boxster Spyder, this spirit is expressed by its unmistakably sporty design. By a styling that, typically for Porsche, explores its own directions.
The most striking examples are the manual canvas hood in place of an electric convertible hood and the rear which is dominated by two imposing and dynamic-looking haunches. With the hood open, these create a smooth visual continuation of the roll-over bars in a black painted finish. So, is this all just styling for styling’s sake? On the contrary. The addition of pure design here should only be contemplated if performance is improved as a consequence. The result of these enhancements is improved aerodynamics during open-top driving.
