Auto Trader verdict:
The Porsche Boxster Spyder is the fastest, most extreme and most exclusive version of the 981-series roadster. The superb chassis, sharp steering and intoxicating flat-six engine help deliver one of the most rewarding sports car driving experiences at any price. However, it’s also the most expensive and least practical Boxster too, thanks to a stripped down cabin and irritatingly fiddly roof. The Spyder is special, but also a timely reminder of just how good the Boxster can be – we hope Porsche uses this as its base for the next-generation of GTS models wearing the 718 badge.
