Porsche has released a new promotional video for the Boxster Spyder.

Originally unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the Boxster Spyder features a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 375 PS (276 kW) and 420 Nm (309 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed is 290 km/h (180 mph).

Since the model is also about performance, it has been equipped with beefier brakes, an improved steering system and a sportier suspension that reduces the ride height by 20mm.  The model also has Cayman GT4-sourced bumpers, a unique engine cover and a lightweight soft top - among other things.

The Porsche Boxster Spyder will go on sale in the United States in October and pricing starts at $82,100 (excluding a $995 destination charge).
