Lightest Porsche available – Boxster Spyder

24 November 2009 One Comment

Weighing in at a mere 1000 kgs, the new 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder will be the lightest Porsche available so far from this company known for lightweight sports cars. The new mid-engined roadster represents the true, purist form of the sports car – agile, powerful, open and efficient. This third Boxster model will join it’s older Boxster and Boxster S family and will make it’s world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, December 2, 2009.

The newest member of the Boxster family stands out from the other versions of the Porsche’s mid-engined roadster. It’s low-slung, lightweight soft top, when closed, extends far to the rear to protect the driver and passenger from bright sunshine, wind and weather. This top, when combined with extra-low side windows and two striking bulges on the single-piece rear lid, provides the Boster Spyder with a sleek silhouette reminiscent of the Carrera GT.

The Boxster Spyder will be sporting a 3.4 litre six-cylinder engine with Direct Fuel Injection upfront of the rear axle according to porsche. It’ll be producing a fair 320HP, 10HP more than the current Boxster S. It’ll also feature aluminum door skins and lightweight interior door panels from the 911 GT3 RS contribute to the weight reduction.

When equipped with Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission and the Sports Chrono Package, the new Spyder, using Launch Control, accelerates from a standstill to 100kp/h in 4.6 seconds. Top track speed is 300kp/h – with the roof open.

In 2004 and 2008 Porsche produced limited editions of the Boxster bearing the additional name Spyder, honoring the 550 and RS 60. In contrast, the new Boxster Spyder is a regular, but specially developed and upgraded production model as compared with the Boxster and Boxster S.
