5 reasons to buy the 2022 Porsche 718 Spyder

1. Beautiful flat-six engine 

The 2022 718 Spyder's 4.0L flat-six engine delivers an exhilarating 414 hp and up to 317 lb-ft of torque with the PDK transmission. This power propels the Spyder to 60 mph in a mere 4.2 seconds, accompanied by a sport exhaust system that provides a sonorous backdrop to every drive. This is an engine note that will turn heads no matter where you go. 

2. Precision handling 

The Spyder's lowered sport suspension, down by 30 mm compared to the base Boxster, offers a thrilling drive as it lowers the car's center of gravity. It's meticulously engineered for direct road engagement and agility, featuring a brake-based differential and Porsche Torque Vectoring with a rear differential lock. This arrangement bolsters stability and responsiveness, particularly in corners and dynamic driving scenarios. 

3. Sleek Spyder style 

Inspired by its race car heritage, the 2022 718 Spyder features a distinctive silhouette and aerodynamically optimized front design. The front spoiler, central air intake, and unique rear diffuser all enhance performance. As for aesthetics, the Spyder-specific trim adds a touch of sportiness, meaning you'll be happy to stare at it after every drive. 

4. Convertible top for open-air freedom 

The Spyder's manually operated, lightweight convertible top is a seamless blend of functionality and design. It's easy to operate and suitable for high-speed driving, smoothly fitting into the car’s sleek profile. The optional two-tone red and black roof, as part of the Spyder Classic package, adds an extra layer of exclusivity. 

5. Driver-centric interior 

The interior of the 2022 718 Spyder is meticulously crafted with a focus on the driver. Features like the elevated center console, GT sport steering wheel, and shortened gear lever enhance its sports car ergonomics. Sports seats adorned with the Spyder logo and Alcantara® upholstery provide a cockpit designed with you in mind.
