What you’re looking at is the Porsche Boxster Bergspyder, created by the German car manufacturer in 2015 but not detailed by Porsche until now.
Porsche took inspiration from the 1968 909 Bergspyder in creating this one-off Boxster. The 1968 car was a single-seater built specifically for hillclimb events and weighed just 847 pounds (384 kg). It also had an eye-catching white and green livery and a tiny windshield in front of the driver.
The Boxster Bergspyder is a modern interpretation of the original car and is drastically different from any other Boxster variant to come before it. First and foremost, the area where you’d typically expect to find a passenger seat has been covered meaning the Bergspyder is a single-seater, just like the original. Additionally, the car includes a tiny wraparound windshield and a rear-view mirror just off center from where a dashboard would ordinarily be found.
Much like the 909, the Boxster includes a hoop directly behind the head of the driver and a pair of voluptuous buttresses. Porsche also fitted the car with black wheels and green calipers.
Sitting under the skin of the Boxster Bergspyder is the same six-cylinder as the Cayman GT4 pumping out 1099 kg (2423 lbs) and allowing the speedster to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in a touch over 4 seconds.
The Boxster is considered to be quite a small car nowadays but it absolutely dwarfs the 909.
Porsche allegedly thought about bringing the Boxster Bergspyder into production but decided against it over concerns about how difficult it could be to register in some countries.
