At the 2009 LA Auto Show, Porsche unveiled today its latest Porsche Boxster Spyder. Great car – great Porsche !
The new mid-engine car weight only 2.811 lbs, is powered by a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine producing 340 HP and will go on sales February 2010.
Aluminum door skins and lightweight interior door panels from the 911 GT3 RS contribute to the weight reduction.
When equipped with Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission and the Sports Chrono Package, the new Spyder, using Launch Control, accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Top track speed is 166 mph — with the roof open.
