    718 Spyder

    Here is a photo of the 718 generation Spyder out testing with a group of 992 development cars. The exhaust on the Spyder appears to be a variation of the PSE fitted to the 991.2 with widely spaced tail pipes. Could it suggest there is a flat 6 in this model I wonder.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    I like those bumps on the back, are those new? I don't remember those being on the current cars.

     

    Whoops, didn't realize this was the spider thread and not the GTS one.


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Looks very good to me! the bumps on the back enhance the mid-engine layout visually.


    Re: 718 Spyder

    The Spyder looks good indeed. It looks very muscular. Hopefully it will have the specs to back up the looks.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    The twin hump rear deck design of this 718 version is virtually a carry over from the 981 model. Here is my 981 Spyder next to our 981 Boxster S showing the difference in the rear decks. The rear spoiler on the 718 looks smaller and this will be down to the incorporation of the already raised section of the standard 718 model where the Porsche lettering sits. Apparently Oliver Blume, CEO of PAG, was asked - at the recent PCA Porsche Parade event by a RT member - if the forthcoming 718 Spyder would have a NA engine and he replied that it would.

    NA engine kissbut what gearbox? I hope the Spyder will not be compromised by a "manual only" transmission like some other interesting Porsche cars of late.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    It does look very good kiss The spider is getting better with each generation . 

    Looking at the exhausts , it seems the same as on the GT4

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Interesting! Whatever it is, seems to be the same engine as on the GT4 again.


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Looks nice. Would like to see a low hard top on it with those lines.


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Very good looking car ! Seems like it has the bigger brakes from the Carrera S, perhaps the 6cyl. (991) turbo engine as well...? As it is not supposed to be a "GT-car", Porsche could easily take the engine from the "ordinary" Carrera line...


    Re: 718 Spyder

    It's worth bearing in mind that the 981 Spyder development cars did not have the final production front bumper when they were caught testing in South Africa so the 718 version may yet see a different front end than the Sport Design kit version fitted to this car and may end up sharing the GT4 design once again which would makes sense as it spreads the cost across two models.


    Re: 718 Spyder

    I would really hope they use the GT4 front end because the front of this car looks out of place compared to the rest of the car. Rear is beautiful though. I want this car!


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Here is a PS from Pistonheads showing the Spyder fitted with the front bumper from the recently spied 718 GT4. It will sell like hot cakes if it looks like this.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Judging by 981 Spyder, I think the front lip won’t be as aggressive as that. But otherwise hopefully that is the front end we get. 


    Re: 718 Spyder

    The 718 Spyder not only has the bigger Carrera brakes, it has the 380mm GT3/GT4 brakes!
    Second it has now the same tire dimensions as the GT4. The 981 Spyder had the normal Boxster sizes.
    Third, there are Cup 2 on the Spyder, the 981 Spyder had normal Pirellis.
    This makes me thinking that the Spyder will get the GT4 suspension. 981 had standard sport suspension.


    But totally unclear what engine it will get.
    flat 4 turbo, flat 6 turbo, flat 6 n/a

    Exhaust look like flat 6 turbo.
    New emission rules beginning Sep 2018 in europe, may force them to drop n/a or they have to use particulate filters.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    C'mon, we are talking still about Porsche, right? Therefore, as much as I would be looking forward to seeing this Super-Spyder in real life, I very much doubt that this Model would come close to a potential  GT4 specc. Anyway, I am already taken by the looks of this car...Smiley

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Front end looks pretty finished, not camouflaged. I like it a lot. Rear end looks a bit unrefined with the heavy edges of the valence; out of sync with the more delicate front end. Hopefully that's camouflage.

     


    Re: 718 Spyder

    To me the front end is too “clean” and not edgy enough for a special model like the Spyder.

    Agree. I would say the front is not aggressive enough for the Spyder. Meanwhile Cayman GT4 front looks much better

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Some of the prototypes had GTS front. This will be changed to a proper "GT" front.
