Hungry for every curve and optimised for the racetrack
The 718 family welcomes new members: with the new 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4, Porsche introduces two particularly emotional and powerful models to claim top spots in the model series.
Their pure character will appeal to sports car enthusiasts who delight in unadulterated driving pleasure and appreciate a high level of agility and an almost intimate proximity to the centre of power. The perfectly balanced mid-engine concept offers all this.
For the first time ever, the 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 share a technical base. This includes the newly developed 4.0 litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine, together with a 6-speed manual transmission. The new high-revving engine generates 309 kW (420 PS) – 35 PS for the GT4 and 45 PS more for the Spyder than their respective predecessor models.
Whilst the GT4 represents the entry-level GT road model from Porsche, the Spyder is a purist through and through – offering an unfiltered driving experience. Both rely on highly efficient aerodynamics, a full GT chassis and powerful brakes.
The new Porsche 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 are available to order now.
718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 (combined) official fuel consumption (WLTP): 25.7 mpg (10.9 l/100 km). CO₂ emissions (NEDC equivalent): 249 g/km.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
