2020 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder – Dream Cars
Naturally aspirated, six cylinders, Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder is the official car. Powering this sports car is not a variant of the 911 GT3’s high-revving 4.0-liter flat-six, the engine many expected Porsche to squeeze into its mid-engine models, but a new six-cylinder engine from the German brand. Loosely based on the 9A2 flat-six from the 911 Carrera range, and built on the same production line, the engine that powers the high-performance 718 features kit such as cylinder deactivation and piezo fuel injectors. Redline is a sky-high 8,000 rpm, while the engine’s approximately 414 horsepower peak at a heady 7,600rpm and its 310 pound-feet of torque is available between 5,000-6,800 rpm. Those figures allow the 718 Boxster Spyder to reach 62 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds and hit top speed of 187 mph. Boxster Spyder retains manual transmission. Meanwhile, weight rises to more than 3100 pounds; an almost 200-pound gain over the previous model. Most of the extra fat is attributable to pesky things such as a pair of exhaust particulate filters, as well as the implementation of an automatic stop/start system, which requires the addition of a bigger starter and battery. Helping the model achieve this feat are major aerodynamic advancements, including a large underbody diffuser that makes 50 percent more downforce. Wheels and tires carryover and the car’s lightweight 20-inch alloys wear the latest Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires measuring 245/35 up front and 295/30 at the rear. Additional performance enhancements include Porsche’s latest torque vectoring setup, a mechanical limited-slip differential, new dampers, and more. The suspension includes active dampers and the ride heights for the Spyder are some 30 millimeters lower than any other 718 model. The cars also pinch elements from the GT3 parts bin. Specifically, the top mounts’ solid, ball-mounted joints. Porsche’s GT department stuck with conventional suspension bushings elsewhere in order to maintain a good (i.e. smooth) on-road driving experience. Nevertheless, this is track-oriented vehicle first, and track rats will welcome the cars’ adjustable toe, camber, and roll bar rates. Additional dynamic tech includes an automatic rev-matching feature and access to the Porsche Track Precision App, which lets drivers geek out on lap times and the like. Options include lighter and more fade resistant carbon-ceramic brakes, lighter bucket seats, and plenty of individual trim options. The Spyder wears a price tag of $96,300. Given the six-cylinder engine and notable performance capabilities, the latest Boxster Spyder strikes us as relative bargain.
