For most of us, the idea of owning a Porsche would be special enough. For those who want an extra slice of exclusivity, however, there’s the new Boxster RS60 Spyder.
Each of them comes with a host of visual goodies, and the car’s 303bhp power output is 8bhp more than the standard £39,995 Boxster S on which it’s based. But can the RS60 really justify its £45,500 price tag?
Right from the outset, the Boxster was conceived to reflect the sporting simplicity of the classic Sixties Speedster models. It shares the same mid-engined layout and open-topped body, and one look at any Boxster’s lines is enough to see it has clearly been influenced by those cars.
The RS60 takes this a step further, with a roof and cabin finished in deep red – a colour scheme inspired by the seats fitted to the original racer. For those who find that arrangement a little too dramatic, there is the option of a more subtle grey interior and black hood instead.
Regardless of your colour choice, all cars get a black windscreen surround and a red finish to the tail-lights. A lower front spoiler and 19-inch alloys are standard, and to improve the handling, there’s a slightly wider track.
