You have to give it to Porsche.

The company definitely knows how to play with a car enthusiast's heart. One way this is happening is with the latest and greatest Boxster and Caymans.

The thing is, with every all-new iteration or variant, the Boxster and Cayman models become even more appealing. They also increase in price. At the 2015 New York Auto Show, the German automaker unveiled another version dubbed the Boxster Spyder.

Much like the all-new Cayman GT4, the Boxster Spyder is as hardcore as it gets. It features a more paired down interior and more power than before. Of course for all of this goodness, you will have to dole out some coin. To be precise, it starts at just over $82,000.

As the last Boxster I drove, the GTS, had an as-tested price over $100,000, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Spyder — with options — easily crest that mark.

Here's the dilemma: The base 911 starts at just over $84,000. There's no question that the 911 is an icon and, in addition, we're likely to believe that no one will look at you, palms facing the sky, asking "So, you couldn't afford a 911?"

So, I have to ask: IF presented with the opportunity to pick up an all-new Boxster Spyder or a base 911, WHICH would you choose and WHY?
