There is no question that the 2016 Boxster Spyder is an incredibly attractive car, both top and top down. Porsche bragged about saving 24 lbs by removing the motors and glass rear window of the standard Boxster top and the Spyder is the lightest member of the Boxster family, despite having the larger 3.8l engine. In today's post, Dudestuff takes a look at just what compromises were made to make the worst convertible top sold on the market today.
Probably one of Porsche's worst kept secrets, the 911R was officially announced today. It's the stuff dreams are made of, in an increasingly turbocharged world. 500 horsepower, a near 9000 rpm redline, manual transmission only, and a curb weight of 3021 lbs, if you accept the car sans air conditioning. No rear seats, magnesium roof panel, no extraneous frippery, just a naturally aspirated motor connected to the road through a foot controlled clutch pedal. Lightweight bucket seats, that come in a single size, houndstooth interior paneling, etc. What a gorgeous car, and it must be so amazing to drive. It's the 911 people are drooling over... Except for a few things - the price - $184,900 + destination charges, and the availability - none.
