Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder On The Way

Porsche is planning a new 718 Boxster Spyder and according to the German automaker, we should expect a storm.

Porsche teased a new-generation Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder on its Facebook page yesterday, essentially confirming what we’ve known for a while. There will be a Spyder version of the latest Porsche Boxster.

In the 15-second publication that shows the car racing on a coastal road. We don’t really see anything except glimpses of the next 718 Spyder, nothing to give us an idea of its final design. We do see a soft top, however, and we’re hoping the new car will keep the very primitive and yet so cool manual cloth top that required six steps and even more patience in the previous Boxster Spyder.

The Boxster Spyder has always been the purest Boxster. It’s lighter and foregoes quite a few gizmos in favor of a more connected, engaging drive that’s unhindered by useless weight. Things like the radio and a/c were options, options you didn’t check if you understood what the Spyder was about.

The last Boxster Spyder was powered by a six-cylinder 3.8-liter engine taken from a Porsche 911 Carrera S and shared with the Porsche Cayman GT4. It could hit 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and lap the Nürburgring in 7 minutes 47 seconds. No one knows what to expect of the new 718 Boxster Spyder, but it will certainly be even faster.

Porsche says a storm is coming, we should get ready, and that the 718 Boxster Spyder is perfectly irrational. We can’t wait to see how Porsche will back those claims.
