PORSCHE 718 BOXSTER SPYDER
The Green Lantern.
Rough, uncouth and with an organ donation from the 911: the 718 Boxster Spyder is a Porsche that actually no longer exists. In the historically based and rare color "Python Green" from German delivery with only 1,380 km mileage, this model is in new condition and also stands out due to the extensive equipment.

"Another car that nobody needs." Rarely has an advertising slogan been as true as the one with which Porsche accompanies the premiere of the new 718 Boxster Spyder on posters in Zuffenhausen. But the postscript that the Swabians printed on the poster is also true: "But that everyone wants." Even in the 1950s, the Porsche engineers were a bit unreasonable – in a positive sense. In 1957, for example, they sent the then freshly tested 718 RSK Spyder into what is probably the toughest long-distance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A year later he took third and fourth place there. This was followed by victories in the European Hillclimb Championship and the Targa Florio in 1959. Its direct successor: the 718 RS 60 Spyder. Together they dominated the mountain championships for years. With its two humps, the car looks pretty radical.
The Spyder is the sportiest derivative of the open-top 718 models, which primarily appeals to purists who want to experience classic, unfiltered driving fun on winding roads. With the Spyder, the working range is another 500 rpm higher than with other Porsche models, the red line is only at 8000 rpm. Instead of the turbo four-cylinder otherwise installed in the 718, what may be the last naturally aspirated engine that Porsche will put in a street-legal sports car is right behind the seats in the Spyder: the six cylinders, arranged in a boxer pattern and with a displacement of four liters, achieve their maximum torque of 420 Nm at 5000 to 6800 rpm, its maximum output of 420 hp at 7600 and its limit only at 8000 rpm. Values that previously could only be dreamed of in the Boxster.
The 20-inch Spyder wheels suit the model perfectly due to the short wheelbase.
The engine is bolted to a wonderfully crisp and sometimes rough and therefore authentic gearbox. So that even inexperienced drivers can have fun, the auto-blip button on the center tunnel lures: if it is pressed, the electronics fire when changing gears with double-declutching, thus reducing the speed jumps when shifting down, increasing driving stability and also reducing wear. So you drive the open two-seater almost constantly at the limit and turn the gears with relish.
Woe betide if he is let go: the 718 Boxster Spyder in the uni color python green looks like a tense speeding bow even when stationary. No wonder, because the forefather was the godfather for this model. In 1957, for example, the then freshly tested 718 RSK Spyder took part in what is probably the toughest long-distance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A year later he took third and fourth place there. This was followed by victories in the European Hillclimb Championship and the Targa Florio in 1959. Its direct successor: the 718 RS 60 Spyder. Together they dominated the mountain championships for years.
The racing chassis selected ex works for this model from the sister model Cayman GT-4 with 30 millimeters less ground clearance and a new axle construction is supplemented in this example by the valve exhaust system installed immediately after delivery.
Interior: The optional extras selected are extensive and make the car a particularly exclusive example: the Plus sports seats for the driver and front passenger in combination with the extended leather upholstery in leather and Alcantara, with the airbag module, the GT sports steering wheel and the shift lever also being upholstered, underline the car the high-quality but at the same time sporty character.
Furthermore, the decorative panel of the door panel and the control panel were painted in the vehicle color in detail ex works. The dials of the instrument cluster, as well as the bezel of the center console and the stopwatch were made in black.
The long list of extras includes the Sport Chrono Package Plus, the pedals and footrest in a sports look, the practical parking aid and there is automatic speed control for longer journeys.
A highly emotional color was chosen for this special vehicle. Python green on the outside and extended leather interiors, the legend lives on in the new 718 Spyder.
For many, the Spyder is much more fun than the 911 and drives almost as fast. After all, it not only sprints from 0 to 100 in 4.4 seconds, but also cracks the 300 mark at full throttle for the first time – albeit just barely.
The engine comes from the 911 series, the 991, the transplant was relatively easy. The lightweight top is known from the predecessor. What is new is the aerodynamics, which mainly benefit from a new diffuser at the rear. Because the sports exhaust system takes up less space, more air can now flow under the car and thus generate downforce on the rear axle for the first time in the Boxster. This is another reason why the two-seater literally sticks to the asphalt.
Conclusion: Everything is right here, because the top model 718 Boxster Spyder is an open pleasure with 911 technology and racing genes for purists and cool calculators. In python green and the extended leather interior, from German delivery and first hand with only 1,380 km mileage, this vehicle is well on the way to becoming a valuable classic. Last but not least, since the last naturally aspirated engine in this model series was installed here, this specimen will give its new owner a lot of pleasure and promises a high potential for appreciation.
