Spotted this all-aluminum, hand-built Bavarian beauty meets 400 hp bruiser in a west side garage on 57th street and felt compelled to snap a few. It’s almost as if time has stood still for this classically designed roadster. The 507-inspired lines still ring very very true today. It’s actually hard to believe that this car has been out of production for the better part of 10 years considering how new, relevant and fresh it still appears today. The Z4 is cool and all but when will BMW’s skunk works Motorsport division bring us another roadster worthy of such praise?

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. Aside from the double bubble butt and rather primitive manual top, the Spyder is up 10 hp and down 176 pounds from sibling Boxster S (thanks largely to the removal of the automatic folding top). It also features a lower ride height and more aggressive suspension set up.
