Viper Green Porsche Boxster Spyder Spotted in Essen

Viper Green Porsche Boxster Spyder 0 600x373 at Viper Green Porsche Boxster Spyder Spotted in Essen

Pictured here wedged tightly between two other cars in a parking lot is one of the rarest cars in the world. This Viper Green Porsche Boxster Spyder 981 was caught in Essen, Germany, rocking an exclusive color retro-inspired color.

The Boxster Spyder, as you know, is an unplugged sort of sports car which gives a whole new meaning to the whole less-is-more philosophy. It doesn’t come with a roof as such, only a tent-like tonneau cover which you see here erected and in place, because apparently the owner of this Viper Green Porsche Boxster Spyder likes to use his speed machine even in the depth of winter.

Besides the amazing exterior color, which harks back to the 911s of the 70s, this car is also unique because it is a pure-blooded sports car – a true spiritual successor to the 550 Spyder – and also because it is one of the last flat-six powered Boxsters. The next generation Boxster and Cayman, to be launched in 2016, will be called the 718 series and will boast a flat-four turbo engine.
