Sir Mix-A-Lot has nothing on this rump. The special edition Boxster, code name Spyder, is the latest rendition of the familiar mid engine ragtop from Stuttgart. The $61,200 Spyder is the subject of a rather flattering rear end treatment that pays homage to the hump-backed 550 Spyder popularized by none other than Mr. Cool himself, James Dean.

It also features a lower ride height and more aggressive suspension set up.
