Satisfy the 718 Spyder RS!

Mat's got his hands on this glorious and he's about to find out if it's the supreme on sale from Porsche's GT division!

So for beginners, let's have a look at how this automobile differs from the basic Boxster that it's based on. Up leading it includes a more aggressive bumper, a big front splitter and a carbon fibre bonnet. The cars and truck we have here also has the Weissach pack fitted to it, so it includes loads of bare carbon throughout the automobile. Head around to the back and you'll find the standard exhaust design, as well as a fixed ducktail spoiler. Let's face it, it looks great!

Head within and you'll find a pair of carbon fiber container seats, some material door manages, and Alcantara on the guiding wheel and gear stick. The centre console and dash design is conventional Porsche, nevertheless the Weissach pack brings a couple of more distinctions to the basic cars and truck, including more exposed carbon throughout the cabin and Alcantara throughout the upper dash.

The Spyder RS is powered by the same marvelous motorsport-derived 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six as you'll find in the GT4 RS, 911 GT3 & GT3 RS. It sounds definitely amazing, and it puts down 500hp and 450Nm. This power is sent to the rear wheels just through a 7-speed PDK automatic transmission. It's definitely impressive!!

The vehicle starts from ₤ 123,000, although the version we have here, with the Weissach pack and a couple of other additions, will set you back around ₤ 138,000. So what do you think – is it worth it? And is it the best cars and truck from Porsche's GT department? You'll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!

    Boxter S opening the roof: 11 s, Spyder RS: 13min – just sayin…..does the roof have any use? Yes – to protect against dust over the winter in the garage – otherwise it’s useless, I would keep it open anyway at all times. Totally agree with Matts verdict! If you can – buy it! I miss my Boxter S every weekend

    1. @Jay-xr3sb Avatar

      981S, or 981GTS if you want to pay £15k more, or the gts 4.0 if you want to pay more than double.

      This is for those with money to burn with many cars for all seasons.

      @@coletrickIe you only get an allocation after spending a ton or buying it over list. Its a treat for regular customers, and something nice for us to see, but not accessible. Most will sit gathering dust.

      But it doesn’t matter, the 981S is a bargin to me, still too fast in most cases, but the handling is always there.

      What you’re saying only makes sense if you have a mental disability and are unable to create new memories. Even so, I’d imagine people like this would have a manual on the seat or something to remember how to take the roof off. It’s a maximum 2 minute procedure if doing it alone. The roof is great – can be used without the rear part to let more sound in and on a nice day can be left home completely to save weight.

    Putting this roof in “boot” is one thing … Put it up again is something totally different.

    I wish you would use the specialist timing gear in all of your drag races, because that would offset the horrible reaction times that some of your other drivers have.

    1. @purwantiallan5089 Avatar

      Some of them even ended up overshooting the drag race reaction times.

    Really do love the spyder rs but the roof situation looks like a MASSIVE after-thought.

      It’s a Spyder. It’s basically not supposed to have a roof.. The roof is only made for emergencies.

      Its meant to be driven without the roof. They just need onee incase it rains

    so, by the time you’ve got the roof down, the sun’s gone in and it’s started raining again….then you’ve got to put the bloody thing back up……brilliant 🤣🤣
