2015 New Porsche Boxster Spyder Unveiled

Snapshot: The new Porsche Boxster Spyder will be launched in the market in July and is available to order now from Porsche Centres.

Porsche has taken the wraps off the 2015 convertible season with the World premiere of the new Boxster Spyder sports car at the New York International Auto Show. The new range-topping Boxster retains the independent character of the previous Spyder, which has already attained cult status. The new Porsche Boxster Spyder will be launched in the market in July and is available to order now from Porsche Centres. Prices in UK start at £60,459 (Around Rs. 56 Lakhs).

The classic fabric roof in 2015 Porsche Boxster Spyder is still opened and closed by hand, and the sports car is available with only a manual transmission. As a true original roadster, the Boxster Spyder offers a traditional sports-car driving experience but with contemporary performance. This means firm sports suspension with a 20 mm lower ride height, powerful brakes taken from the 911 Carrera, even more direct steering, and a 3.8L flat 6-cylinder engine with an output of 375bhp. Inside the cabin, The driver and passenger sit in light sports bucket seats with large side supports, while the new steering wheel with a diameter of 360 mm helps ensure the mid-engine roadster can be driven precisely and with great agility.

Drivers and passengers can look forward to a genuine sports-car experience with outstanding driving dynamics in the lightest yet most powerful Boxster. It takes only around 4.5 seconds for the Boxster Spyder to sprint from 0 to 100 kmph, while the model’s top speed is 290kmph. NEDC overall fuel consumption amounts to 28.5 mpg (Around 10.09kmpl). In line with the model’s purist design neither a radio nor air conditioning is included as standard equipment in order to reduce weight. However, both can be ordered ex-factory as optional equipment at no extra cost. In addition, the entire range of Boxster audio systems is available for customers to choose from as an option. The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with all of its special features can also be ordered as optional equipment, for example.

The distinctive design of the Boxster Spyder includes visual elements that recall the legendary sports and race cars from Porsche. For example, as a tribute to the 718 Spyder from the 1960s, the new Boxster Spyder has two prominent streamlined bulges that extend down along the long rear lid behind the head restraints. The partially manually operated, lightweight top is suitable for everyday use and brings to mind roadsters from the past, while the fins that stretch back to the rear lend the vehicle’s silhouette its characteristic design. The front and rear end of the model are taken from the Cayman GT4.
