A light touch

But not perfect. The roof is a bit silly, and we prove this by taking so long to fasten it on - it hooks over two exposed clasps on the rear deck - that Yorkie man actually manages to catch us up in the middle of a super-twisty forest section (what the hell is he doing up here?). Imaginations working overtime, we make good our escape just before he can blast us with his 12-bore.
Then there's the small matter of how much a judiciously specced Spyder would actually cost. Working off the regular Boxster's options price list, I manage to get my optimum Spyder up to a rather worrying £54,353 without trying too hard. Which takes it perilously close to used 997 GT3 money, and that's a whole different ball-game.
