The Porsche 718 Spyder Is the Six-Cylinder Boxster of Your Dreams
Now just as hard-core as its hardtop Cayman GT4 sibling, the new Spyder intrigues with its naturally aspirated flat-six.
- This new high-performance version of the Porsche 718 Boxster is called the 718 Spyder.
- It uses a naturally aspirated flat-six engine with 414 horsepower, cementing its place atop the lineup.
- The 2020 718 Spyder will go on sale next spring with a starting price of $97,550.
With more power and torque than the last-gen flat-six cars, every variety of the Porsche 718 Boxster we’ve tested reaffirms that this mid-engined master pulls harder with its new turbocharged four-cylinder engines. But Porsche’s GT customers—some of the most nitpicky people in the sports-car universe—demanded that the hottest Boxster, the Spyder, return with the engine they think the cars deserved. Porsche listened.
