Porsche Boxster RS60 Spyder: First drive report

Porsche Boxster RS60 Spyder
Wanna know how the Porsche Boxster RS60 Spyder feels driving? Look no further, just read on.

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.
