Honestly, it was a deal breaker for me... and I had to walk away from the car... looked back twice cause it's beautiful...but had to walk away.

This is a weekend car only.... forget it as a DD unless you keep the top on exclusively and depending on where you live. No back seats and little to no trunk space. My S2000 has more room and covertible functionality.

The other downer is that it is 126mph limited with the top up......SUCKS!...

When the Boxster Spyder was introduced....I don't think I've ever been more excited and then dissappointed in my life.
I agree with most of your points. I don't think anyone is using a Boxster Spyder as a daily driver but it actually has a reasonable amount to storage space between the front and rear trunks,
