Yes please, arguably one of the most engaging drive cars you will find. some of the sound insulation for a near 30kg saving over the 3.4-litre Boxster GTS.
Some lighter alloys are used in the chassis and even the interior door handles are in webbing strap – a nice touch.
But the essence of the Boxster remains – mid-mounted engine driv- ing the rear wheels, huge brakes in this case with six piston calipers.
THE engine is a clockwork wonder spinning out to 7800rpm thanks in part to variable cam timing and cam lift, direct fuel injection, a high compression ratio and other optimisation technology.
Far from being a quasi race car, the Spyder offers up a comfortable ride that insulates occupants from rough roads and noise.
It weighs 1315kg, which places the Spyder at the lighter end of the serious roadster spectrum.
The 20-inch forged wheels have wide rubber and the car has some aero aids including the twin streamliners behind each seat.
Sports Chrono chassis enhancement is standard and it rides 20mm lower than standard Boxster, giving a more purposeful stance – from all angles.
Porsche designed this car specifically for driving fun and driver engagement which we sampled on tight roads where it was stunningly competent.
Wow, what a car, no wonder it’s capable of putting away a lap of the Nurburgring in a rapid 7m 47s.
EVERY aspect of the Spyder sends a chill down your spine, from the stunning looks of it to the trumpeting exhaust with pyrotechnic-like explosions on the throttle overrun, to the kart-like steering and brakes to the superb ride quality that covers off most sealed road driving with utterly no drama.
You can point Spyder where and when you like and it flicks that way instantly.
You can dab at the brakes and wash off huge speed in a blink, you can whip it back a cog and rap it out to red-line with an exponentially increasing rate of acceleration. Wow all right. We would never tire of driving a car like this.
It has comfortable seats and a super stylish interior with plenty of luxury and technology including the satnav system that displays on a large central screen and also in the instrument pod on the right hand dial.
The gearbox is a close ratio unit with a rifle bolt action to make ratio changes snick through fast.
Any criticisms at all for this machine?
Nope, not a one, it even goes fairly lightly on fuel rated at 9.9 litres/100km.
