Porsche has revealed the 2016 Boxster Spyder, which will sit at the top of the Boxster range when it arrives later this year. Inspired by the 718 Spyder from the 1960s, the Boxster Spyder recalls roadsters from the past with its prominent streamliners that extend down along the sweeping rear lid behind the headrests.

The Boxster Spyder dials up the Boxster’s performance with a firm sport suspension with a 20-mm lower ride height, brakes taken from the 911 Carrera S, more direct steering, and a 3.8-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with an output of 375 horsepower. The Boxster Spyder will reach 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and has a top track speed of 180 mph.
To keep things light, the Boxster Spyder’s interior doesn’t come standard with a radio or air conditioner to reduce weight. Pricing will start at $83,095 when the Boxster Spyder arrives in October.
