Porsche Boxster Spyder review - see why it’s the most fun Porsche EVER!

On the lookout for your next car? Head to carwow.co.uk to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
This is the new Porsche 718 Spyder, and Mat thinks it's the most fun Porsche sports car EVER! So what does it offer to claim that title, we hear you ask? Well under the bonnet, it’s packing the same 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six (much better than flat-four in the normal Boxster) as found in the GTS. What's more, it's been tuned to offer 420hp and 420Nm of torque!
In terms of price, it starts from £73,850, but when it has a top speed of 187mph and can hit 60mph in just 4.4 seconds, is it worth the price over the standard Boxster? Or should you even just pay the extra and go for the 911?! Stick with Mat to find out!

  • Really great car BUT with all the comfort bits it is WAY to heavy. With this amount of horse power its should be significantly faster. My Alfa Romeo 4 C with a stage 1 tune a 1.75 litre 4 cylinder engine has a better HP to pound ratio AND is faster AND more nimble on a track. For the money this is disappointing. If you want a daily driver that gets some glances here and their AND you have lots of dough this is your car. If you like speed and handling and want to save money look at the Alfa 4C IF you can find one. Cheers

  • If I win the lottery, or somehow become rich, I going to a Porsche dealership, and ordering and speccing out both the 911 Turbo S, and the 718 Spyder on the same day. I don't want a Ferrari, Lambo, or McLaren, I want this pair of Porsches. The only thing is I love them both in Chaulk, don't know how crazy it is to buy both the same color.

  • Sad moment when watching this video - it looks like a kid receiving an adult toy, no clue on how to use it, then he is exagerating in all ways ! Porsche cars are for good drivers who are doing long distances with respect for the mechanics, not for kids burning their tyres on a hidden piece ok asphalt - the good thing is that these are expensive, so less such people have access to them !

  • As someone who is LGBT and a car enthusiast, I couldn't help but catch the, "It's such a hairdresser's car" said in a stereotypical gay lisp. I am not sure I appreciate a whole group of people stereotyped like that. It's not 1990.

  • it is very interesting on how porsche artificially slows down this model so not to dent 911 series sales......it has to be noted tha the boxster was first launched as a measure to counter european recession.... thus making what was back then an affordable porsche...... this car if properly set up could do 0 to 60 easily in 2 seconds

  • Hey, Matt, my gay hairdresser is 6 foot 5 inches tall about 280 lbs of lean muscle. He does not have that stereotypical "sissy boy" voice either. GOOD impression by the way...are you sure you're not a "hair dresser" too? He's more manly than any straight guy I know. Did you pay attention in your ethics training class that those type of stereotypical "impressions" of hair dressers can land you a lawsuit or negative press from the LGBT community. Just stop that crap. It's 2020 and you should be better than that. And yes, not all your subscribers are hetro.

  • A 911 is incredible but I'd take a Boxter with a flat 6 and manual every single time. Can't beat a mid mounted engine, tho that spider roof looks ridiculous, surely Porsche of all companies could have done better. Love the fact its available with a manual, getting this type of vehicle without a manual makes no sense (hint hint jag), and a turbo I4 should never be in any vehicle from Porsche. They do take the piss with their options pricing, no wonder its the most profitable brand
