Aerodynamics and design
718 Spyder
Pure Excitement. At its best.
Corners. Hairpin bends. Gradients. Mountain races have always been a special challenge. At the start of the 60s, by creating the 718 RS 60 Spyder, Porsche continued to expand the successful concept of the legendary 550 Spyder and its successor models – lightweight, lower center of gravity, mid-mounted engine, great maneuvering – sparked waves of excitement in countless mountain and long-distance races.
Porsche - Front spoiler lip, air intakes and air outlet.
Front spoiler lip, air intakes and air outlet.
The highly distinctive front spoiler lip with 'Spyder' logo reduces aerodynamic lift on the front axle with additional spoilers in front of the wheel arches. The central air intake in the front fascia also optimizes the aerodynamics and channels the air stream up through the air outlet in front of the hood. The large air intakes with air intake grilles ensure a high cooling capacity.
Porsche - Streamliners.
The characteristic streamliners on the rear visually extend the shape of the black 2-piece rollover bars. An unmistakable look, reminiscent of the silhouette of one or other of its predecessors.
Porsche - Rear spoiler.
Rear spoiler.
The distinctive rear spoiler between the clear tailights automatically extends at speeds over 75mph– and reduces lift for greater driving stability.
Porsche - Diffuser and Sport Exhaust System.
Diffuser and Sport Exhaust System.
The dynamic slope of the rear is made up of the diffuser and the concise Sport Exhaust System. The two black sport tailpipes are separated and create the powerful sound that, every now and then, silences reason. The rear diffuser creates a very fast flow on the rear underbody and has an impact on reducing overall lift by 50% in comparison to the previous model. Super car technology that makes itself felt every second.
Open to everything. Except half measures.

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

718 Spyder
Six-cylinder, 4.0-liter displacement, naturally aspirated engine.
A 718 Boxster with six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine. With 4.0-liter displacement? The question has to be asked: ''Does it go?'' It goes.
Porsche - Engine.
Horizontally opposed engine, 6-cylinder, 4.0-liter displacement, maximum engine speed: 8,000rpm and 414hp. Maximum torque in combination with manual transmission: 309 lb-ft at 5,000rpm to 6,800rpm. In combination with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK): 317 lb-ft at 5,500rpm. So the 718 Spyder with PDK and Launch Control activated sprints to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The sprint doesn't stop until 186mph.
Porsche - Integrated dry-sump lubrication and adaptive cylinder control.
Integrated dry-sump lubrication and adaptive cylinder control.
The six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine has direct fuel injection (DFI), integrated dry-sump lubrication and an adaptive cylinder control. In addition, a variable intake manifold with switchable resonance valves provides the engine with optimum ventilation. It sounds technical and a bit dry, but it's really the exact opposite.
Porsche - Sport Exhaust System.
Sport Exhaust System.
An acoustic exclamation mark: the sound of the 718 Spyder. Thanks to the precise Sport 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.
Porsche - Transmission.Porsche - Transmission.Porsche - Transmission.


6-speed manual transmission.

The feel of the 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 lever are 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.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).

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 up shift, forwards to down shift.

Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) including a rear differential lock.

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 lanes. 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.

Chassis systems.

GT sport suspension.

Designed to focus on driving pleasure: the adaptive GT sport suspension. The lightweight spring-strut axle at the front is typical of a GT, the lightweight spring-strut axle at the rear is adjusted to the high performance of the 718 Spyder with additional reinforcements and helper springs as well as specific wheel mounts. Ball joints enable even more precise wheel control.

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 helping to maintain 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 60 or more, but also when slowing back down to 0. This is ensured by six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front, four-piston aluminium 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.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB).

Proven in motorsport: the optionally available Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). With particularly large brake disc diameters, 410mm at the front and 390mm at the rear, they offer even greater braking power and constant braking pressure. The main benefit of the ceramic braking system is its extremely low weight. The brake discs are approximately 50% lighter than cast-iron discs of a similar design and size. The brake callipers are in yellow as standard and also available in High Gloss Black.
