I like the 90 second format - keep them coming!

Looks and sounds fab, pity about the fiddly roof, however here in Malta you could leave it off most of the time.

Love the 90 sec format, great for those of us blessed with not a lot of time to keep updated!! Personally I think if you live somewhere where that hideous looking and tricky roof can be down all of the time, and somewhere where the laws on the road are not as strict as here, then the Boxster Spyder makes great sense and definitely the one to have. If however you live in the UK then I can't see exactly what is wrong with the Boxster S? You get more equipment, an electric roof, and save £4,000. Yes, the performance is better with the Spyder, but with our road laws would you really notice much difference? I always see the Boxster as 'the Porsche to have if you can't afford a 911'. If you have a Boxster you can't use everyday, then it will be your second car. This means that you could sell both cars and buy the 911 instead, so why not do that???

The Ninety Second Review is a welcome addition to written critiques. In the case of the Porsche Boxster Spyder the presenter is affable, enthusiastic in delivery, focussed on his subject matter, and suitably informative. More please!

    The 718-generation Boxster is our favourite roadster of the moment – so is this new GTS variant worth the extra outlay?

    The BMW 5 Series is top of the mid-exec pack, but is there still room for a diesel saloon in everyday family life?
