At first no one wanted to believe the announcement, but with the Porsche Boxster Spyder finally available for purchase, we have to accept the sad truth: the legendary Porsche naturally-aspirated flat-six ends with this all-manual convertible Boxster. The Spyder weighs in at sixty-six pounds lighter than its previous iteration, and that is mostly due to the exclusion of automatic anything in this car. A manual gearbox, and a manual convertible top mean that this final send off for the flat-six is only for the purists. Which is the way it should be.
