Finished in a dazzling shade of Metallic GT Silver this 981 Spyder has a certain understated charm about it. Contrasting details borrowed from the GT4, such as the matte black rear diffuser and side intakes, give the car a contemporary, athletic presence. The twin hump rear deck and contrasting red interior also look fantastic, largely reminiscent of the legendary 550 Spyder which solidified Porsche’s racing reputation in the early 50’s.
The overall condition of the car is excellent, the original factory paint still retains a consistent deep gloss finish across the whole car.
Fitted with the optional Spyder Classic Interior Package, the red leather and black alcantara upholstery combination perfectly compliments the GT Silver exterior. The 18 way adjustable sport seats are in pristine condition, with no signs of wear, they offer uncompromising comfort and support. The alcantara steering wheel is borrowed from the GT3 is also a lovely addition, especially as it is connected to a rack taken directly from the 911 Turbo for a more responsive feel.
Porsche decided to produce the Spyder with an A/C and PCM (Porsche Communication Management) delete as standard favouring weight saving over comfort. Thankfully this car has been specified with Dual Zone Climate Control and PCM which makes the car so much more usable on the road.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Spyder’s 3.8-litre Flat-6 engine is a version of the one found in the new Cayman GT4 and the 991 Carrera S. Power is 45bhp up on a Boxster GTS, so it is now producing a healthy 370 bhp and torque is also up, now making 310lb ft.
Most importantly the new found power is transferred through a 6-Speed manual gearbox. The shifts are short, purposeful and hugely satisfying, especially when accompanied by the magnificent soundtrack of the Flat 6.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The matte anthracite finish of 20″ Boxster Spyder Design Wheels really ties together the exterior of the car, highlighting the contrasting intakes and diffuse perfectly. They present in very good condition with no marks or scuffs.
Matching Pirelli P-Zero rubber adorns all 4 corners and retain plenty of tread all the way around. Pads and discs have plenty of life left and perform admirably in stopping the lightweight Spyder.
