Porsche Boxster Spyder — TEST/DRIVE



The lighter, quicker, Carrera S-engined Porsche Boxster Spyder is the last hurrah for Porsche’s naturally aspirated flat six. Is it the end of an era? It sure is. A great era.

    I hate that ugly hunchback design of the Boxster Spyder

    how many wait this car ?

  15. Nice review and love the "end of an era" callout. I have 911 Targa GTS and Turbo S. My favorite one to drive, the most engaging is my Boxster Spyder. Porsche nailed the gestalt on this one.

    Thats why I bought an S2000. I can buy any new car off the lot if I want tons of torque, hell I can buy a Tesla if I want straight line performance. But the high revving engine, lightweight chassis, and good steering feel are timeless.

  17. G Garrison says:

    nice to see some focus on the spyder….so much noise on the GT4 that i feel like this car if it had been released on its own would have gone down with much fanfare.

  18. This may go down as the collector Boxster to have. I have a base 981 and can't wait for 718S prices to come down enough to do a trade, but with 265hp that should be understandable. This car, however, has the power and the sound. I think that 20-30 years from now these will be going for all the money.

    great review – enjoy your videos Mr. Spinelli

    Just discovered that Porsche was making this, and I'm so happy about it!!! What a beautiful, raw, epic machine. I can't wait to see one in person!

    Good god! What a car! What a sound! What a road! Definitely car porn. Long live the NA flat 6 and long live the manual gearbox. Thanks Mike!

    I love my Boxster Spyder. This review was great. Where was this shot btw? I saw Georgia dealership plate but that don't look like GA! Ah that's Big Island in Hawaii then?

  23. ayowser01 says:

    So the dampers have a static tune? They aren't adjustable at all, like a single adjustable rebound valve?

  24. Paul Frankel says:

    The best Boxster ever.

  25. what the name of the background music playing?

  26. Jason Joseph says:

    Whoever color graded this episode dropped the ball.

  27. Great vid mike. All positive and zero backstep. Hopefully, manufacturers are watching and listening. It's more about the driving experience rather than numbers. To us real "Apex addicts", you are our voice to the big names. You keep us alive.

  28. FunkyBear says:

    Always great when you go behind the wheel for speak about car ;-)

  29. the car is too girly, he is trying hard to make it look better
    but he is failing to do so, it's always a chick car

    good job spinelli!

  31. Mike Spinelli, grow your hair back please.

  32. Ken Lai says:

    End of an era indeed :(

  33. Well that was useless.
    What's it like to drive? how does it handle corners? Does it brake well? Is it quick to accelerate?

  34. Ay Mike's back!

  35. Daniel Lee says:

    is christer harris (editor of this video) just a play on the real chris harris?

  36. Ali D says:

    I own a GT4 and after this video I want a spyder so bad! I love the spyder styling!

  37. slaWterCH says:

    NA flat 6 ftw!

  38. Great car

  39. 993mike says:

    The new four cylinder turbo Boxster/Caymans will never capture this same feeling. They can turn up the boost and make the numbers a little better, but you can't beat the experience of a big N/A Porsche flat 6 with one of the best manual gearboxes ever.

    Take the next TT Spyder with tune

    Fucking beautiful from the back
