Porsche’s Boxster S is one of our favorite cars for its balance, capability, and forgivingness. It’s a stretch to say we thought the latest car need any significant improvements, but that hasn’t stopped Porsche from delivering a new Boxster that’s lighter and more powerful.
Combining a lightweight philosophy with an open-air spirit, the Porsche Boxster Spyder features a manual soft top and sheds 176 pounds compared to the Boxster S. At 2811 pounds for a manual-transmission car, the Boxster Spyder is now the lightest car Porsche sells. You can imagine how excited we get when one of our favorite cars is blessed with two of our favorite traits: lightness and power.
