The new Porsche Boxster Spyder just made its debut at the New York International Auto Show, and by the looks of it, this is a vehicle that is made to appease purists while still exciting those with contemporary tastes in aesthetics and performance.
The new Boxster can zoom from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and can attain a top speed of 290 km/h. Its performance specs resemble those of any top-notch contemporary sports car but its design aesthetic -- included blended headlamps and streamlined bulges -- honor the brand's heritage.
The Boxster Spyder appears to be a successful attempt by Porsche to target two different car enthusiast demographics at the same time, namely the traditionalist/purist and the contemporary petrolhead. This is a vehicle that promises "traditional sports-car driving experience, but with contemporary performance."
