    • Porsche prices the 4.0 liter 414 hp NA flat-6 718 Spyder at $96,300.00 MSRP

      The 718 Spyder is essentially what Porsche is calling the Boxster version of the Cayman GT4. Porsche finally gives the chassis a large flat-6 but refuses to pair it to a PDK transmission. The 718 Spyder is manual only and the best driver's car under $100k in the Porsche range.


      If we are real here though the price easily balloons over $100k with options and is well over six-figures out the door.

      Still, this is the best Boxster ever made. It sounds glorious and looks absolutely fantastic.

      Will potential buyers just choose a 911 Carrera instead at this price point though?

        It depends how much they are sandbagging. You can get 450+ whp out of an NA Porsche flat-6.

        We need to know the baseline to really see the potential gains.

        What a basic $#@! video. I wish they would have been more creative.

        $110,840 to build how we would want, not too bad. I think it came in at pretty much the same price as the 981 Spyder would have if we were to have bought when new.

        Yeah and maybe not have a woman in it. The Boxster still has that 'chick' Porsche stigma to shake and they could have easily had a race car driver ripping this thing up around a track. I don't know why they are marketing to women who don't want to drive stick anyway.
