Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Because the Spyder is derived from a regular Boxster, it shares many of its excellent qualities, including the driving position. It’s pretty much spot on, stretching your legs out to meet the perfectly placed pedals, and a steering wheel that's nicely in line with both. There’s an extensive range of reach and height adjustment, too.

Our test car had optional bucket seats. These are truly enveloping, holding you firmly through bends, but you cannot adjust the backrest angle. Fore and aft adjustment is achieved manually, and electric height adjustment is still provided, but those who enjoy a bit more flexibility should stick with the standard seats.
