Performance 718 Spyder

Porsche 718 Spyder - Performance

Performance

A 718 Boxster with six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine. Obviously. But with 4.0-litre displacement? The question has to be asked: “Does it go?” It goes. Like a bat out of hell.

Perfect. Or in other words: the horizontally opposed engine, completely redesigned. Six-cylinder, 4.0-litre displacement, naturally aspirated engine, excellent torque. Clear announcements presented by our broadly grinning engineers.

With its 309kW (420PS), the engine delivers 45PS more than its predecessors. A variable intake manifold with switchable resonance valves ensures optimal ventilation. As well as direct fuel injection (DFI), integrated dry-sump lubrication and adaptive cylinder control.

The maximum engine speed? 8,000rpm. The maximum torque of 420Nm is from 5,000 to 6,800rpm. Enough thrust to accelerate the new 718 Spyder to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds. Irrational: the sprint only ends the other side of the 300km/h mark.

An acoustic exclamation mark: the sound of the new 718 Spyder. Thanks to the precise sports exhaust system with its two clearly separated Black tailpipes, to the left and right of the rear diffuser. For an even more powerful sports car sound at the press of a button.
