All Muscle Zero Frills: The Boxster Spyder
Some will argue that the 21st century has robbed car lovers of the true thrill of driving. Modern cars haven’t carried on that traditional love for the road and the wheel that the classics have down pat. Thankfully, Porsche hasn’t given up its heritage of making top-notch sports car that let the driver drive. This is the new mid-engine Boxster Spyder. Completely stripped, right down to the automatic transmission – yeah, you’ve got to shift gears by hand. It’s the most powerful Boxster ever; thanks to a 3.8-liter six-cylinder that produces 375 horsepower. You and this two-seater can go 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and tap out at 180 mph. Sounds good to us.
Where’s the crank for the window? Or… can it be true? Does this baby have side curtains like the old Speedsters?
