The Boxster Spyder was released as a 2011 Model year. This Carrara White Boxster Spyder with Black Leather interior just arrived back to us on trade. The Boxster Spyder is a serious piece, the 320-horsepower 3.4-liter flat six in the Boxster Spyder is wonderfully flexible. Equipped with the traditional manual, the run from zero to 60 mph clocks in at 4.9 seconds. But the joy with which Porsche’s traditional six-speed manual transmission operates, finding perfect synergy between road, man and machine, is worth a few tenths. The Boxster Spyder is so good that can serve as a day-to-day car, too.
Factory options include Black Convertible Top, Sport Shifter, Sport Chrono Package without PCM, Bluetooth Interface for Mobile Phone, Universal Audio Interface, Bi-Xenon Dynamic Cornering Headlights, Sport Exhaust System, Wheel caps with Coloured Crest, Porsche CD Radio with CDR-30, Sound Package Plus, Floor Mats in Interior Colour and Cup Holder.
This car was originally sold by us to its first owner. Serviced here at Weissach and traded back to us, we are delighted to present this rare sports car to you.
Autoblog says ““More for Less.” It’s the call to prayer of every car salesman to ever don a plaid jacket. Guys with sturdy names like Wally and Chuck would stop dead in their tracks and tell Porsche “Pal, this Boxster Spyder thing, you’re all upside-down.” You see, with the 2011 Boxster Spyder, Porsche has inverted the polarity on “more for less.” You pay more but get less.
The Boxster Spyder has a high-performance mission: It’s a race car that doesn’t need a trailer. Porsche undertook a lightening program that started with a Boxster S and stripped a slew of equipment, lowered the suspension 3/4 of an inch and substituted aluminum for steel where possible in the body. One-hundred seventy-six pounds later, you’ve got a Boxster Spyder; lighter, lower, sharper. Has it worked for Porsche to go the Lotus route of obsessive weight reduction? Find out after the jump.
Here’s some clarity: this car is not for you if you just want to putter around with a crest on the hood and a flat six behind you. The Boxster Spyder is a serious piece, and if you want a cushy Boxster, the S is your ride. The Boxster Spyder disquiets those who don’t understand. Yes, it’s the top of the Boxster model range, but there is no radio, or air conditioner, and door pulls are reduced to cloth straps. Those of you expecting a range-topper with a $61,200 base price to be the traditional full-boat option-mobile will need to re-center. Simply put, the Boxster Spyder is for motorsports.”
Modern technology – and Porsche’s in particular – is so good that the Boxster Spyder can serve as a day-to-day car, too. Back in the time of the Boxster Spyder’s spiritual predecessors, the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder, lumpy, idle-averse camshafts and finicky dual carburetors were the price you paid for performance. Instead of all that ruckus, the 320-horsepower 3.4-liter flat six in the Boxster Spyder is wonderfully flexible, happy to loll along in sixth gear or go roaring off for redline. Maximum horsepower happens at 7,200 rpm, and the full 273 pound-feet of torque punches in at 4,750 rpm. Though the powertrain doesn’t feel peaky or high strung, there is a distinct determination that kicks in above 4,000 rpm, the result of the Variocam Plus variable valve-timing and lift system doing its thing. The engine also has the classic Porsche-six snarl that adds to the thrill of running through the gears. Fuel economy turned out to be an entirely reasonable 23 mpg despite a week of redline shifts. Weight reduction doesn’t just aid performance.
The Boxster Spyder is Porsche’s best chassis. Choices are thin on the ground for cars that handle as accurately without bad habits, and the Boxster Spyder is a pussycat despite the way it claws the asphalt. If your weekends are filled with cones and apexes, your track-day car has arrived. Oh, and you can putter around in it in between races.”
