Porsche Boxster Spyder
We admit it: This car isn’t for road trips unless you pack light and you want to bust through corners along the way. We don't care, because if we had the chance to travel in the 2016 Boxster Spyder, we'd take it. Of course we would insist on having an audio system (in an effort to strip out all the weight, Porsche makes this a no-cost option, but the default is no audio and a very stripped-down cockpit, all to get the best power-to-weight ratio in Boxster history). It helps that there's a 45hp bump to the 3.8-liter boxer six-cylinder engine, now boosted to 375hp. It's basically now the same engine you get in the 911 Carrera S, minus the extra weight. That makes for an Autobahn-worthy 180 mph top speed — and luckily the Carrera S's brakes also come over to the Boxster Spyder, ensuring that track-worthy handling also includes the ability to stop in a hurry. Yes, you'll pay $80,000 for the privilege of owning a Boxster Spyder, but considering sales will be very limited, we bet they're going to sell out long before the October on-sale date.
