Let's face it, you'll barely ever want to close it: the partially electric and high-speed compatible, lightweight hood of the 718 Spyder. It can be opened and closed with ease and enhances the presence of the 718 Spyder even when closed.

6-speed manual transmission.
The torque transmission in the 718 Spyder is achieved by the precise 6-speed manual transmission with dual-mass flywheel, optimally designed for power. The movements of the gear stick is crisp and short. The driving experience is especially active, intense and pure. The dynamic throttle-blip function plays its part in keeping you, and your endorphin levels, busy.
For the 718 Spyder, the optionally available PDK is even more performance focused. The GT-specific gear selector, short shift times and short, succinct gear changes via the shift paddles as well as a sporty seventh gear, offer a convincing shift performance. Manual operation of the gear selector is based on the established motorsport principle – pull back to shift up, forwards to shift down.
In short: PTV improves the driving dynamics. In detail: the integrated mechanical rear differential lock enables higher traction and lateral dynamics as well as significantly improved vehicle stability during load changes in corners and when changing lane. In addition, when the car is driven assertively into a corner, brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of drive torque is distributed to the outside rear wheel, almost pulling the car into the corner. Steering response is improved, agility is increased.
GT sports suspension.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM -30 mm).
This electronic adjustment of the shock absorber system actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. PASM has two settings: 'Normal', which is a blend of performance and comfort, and 'Sport' where the set-up is much firmer.
Dynamic transmission mounts.
This electronically regulated system minimizes perceptible oscillations and the vibration of the entire drivetrain, in particular the engine. It also adjusts the damping force and stiffness to the driving style and road surface conditions. The results are greater and more uniform drive force, increased traction and faster acceleration.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
PSM is an automatic control system for maintaining stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. In addition to the anti-lock braking system (ABS), it includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control (TC). Alongside the performance tuning with extremely sensitive and accurate regular systems interventions, the systems can be switched off completely in two stages.
The 718 Spyder shows maximum performance, not only just sprinting from 0 to 100 or more, but also when slowing back down to 0. This is ensured by six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front, four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the rear, calipers in red for greater inherent stability and faster response when applying and releasing the brake, even under extreme loads. The composite brake discs at the front and the rear have a diameter of 380mm and are cross-drilled and internally vented – powerful braking even in adverse weather conditions.

In addition to the regular maintenance as part of the standard maintenance intervals, additional maintenance must be carried out for racing use.
The Sports Seats Plus, with their streamlined padding and raised side bolsters, provide optimal hold. The backrest can be adjusted electronically, and the seat height and fore/aft position can be adjusted mechanically. The seat centre is finished with Race-Tex, and the 'Spyder' logo is embroidered on the headrests.
The Adaptive Sports Seats Plus have an electric 18-way-adjustment. The seat height, squab and backrest angle, seat depth, fore/aft adjustment, four-way lumbar support and side bolsters on the seat surface and the backrest can all be individually adjusted. The seat centre is finished with Race-Tex, and the 'Spyder' logo is embroidered on the headrests.
The full bucket Seats are made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with carbon-weave finish. This provides especially good lateral support at minimal weight. The fore/aft adjustment is manual, the height adjustment is electric. The seat centre is finished with Race-Tex, and the 'Spyder' logo is embroidered on the headrests.
