Porsche Boxster RS 60 Spyder (2008)

The Porsche Boxster RS 60 Spyder was a limited edition of 1960 cars with an attractive set of extras over a standard Boxster S.

The old Porsche Boxster seemed hard to fault but with growing roadster competition from BMW and Mercedes, Porsche had to somehow up its game. And that it did. Changes are evolutionary rather than revolutionary but combined they keep this car at the top of its class. Equipment levels are raised, the chassis is tightened and power continues to be edged up. Handling is sharper, but high-speed cruising is more refined too. Porsche’s only problem with this car is trying to justify why you should spend so much more on a 911.
