On 5 November 2009, Porsche officially announced a new variant of the Boxster, which was officially unveiled at the 2009 Los Angeles Motor Show. Positioned above the Boxster S, the Boxster Spyder was the lightest Porsche on the market at the time, weighing 1,275 kg, 80 kg lighter than a Boxster S. This was achieved through the elimination of the conventional soft top's operating mechanism, the radio/PCM unit, door handles, air conditioning, storage compartments, cup holders and large LED light modules on the front fascia, although some of these could be re-added to the car in the form of options. Weight saving was also gained using aluminium doors, an aluminium rear deck and the lightest 19-inch wheels in the Porsche pallet.

The Spyder has a firmer suspension set-up than the other Boxster models and is almost one inch lower in order to have improved handling. A manually operated canvas top, carbon fibre sports bucket seats and two signature humps running along the back of the vehicle provide characteristic design elements. Powered by a six-cylinder boxer engine rated at 320 bhp and 273 lb ft of torque, a 10 hp increase in power over the Boxster S and the related Cayman S. The Boxster Spyder came with a six-speed manual transmission as standard and had Porsche's seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox available as an option.

This stunning example of the very collectable Porsche Spyder is presented in Glacier White with carbon seats trimmed in Alcantara and black hood. Originally registered on 11th May 2011 a car that defies the 13 years the car has been on UK roads. Boasting under 20,000 miles the car has been cared for very well and presents almost as well as when it was purchased new from Porsche with the original launch book even included. Comprehensively serviced by Porsche main dealers and marque specialist Precision Porsche with invoices present in the history file which includes a Porsche health check carried out circa 1,000 miles ago with the next service due April 2025.
