Stuttgart. The 718 family welcomes new members: with the new 718 Spyder1) and the 718 Cayman GT42), Porsche introduces two particularly emotional and powerful top models to claim top spot in the model series. Their pure character will appeal to sports car enthusiasts who delight in unadulterated driving pleasure and appreciate a high level of agility and an almost intimate proximity to the centre of power. The perfectly balanced mid-engine concept offers all this. For the first time ever, the 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 share a technical base. This includes the newly developed four-litre six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine, together with a six-speed manual transmission. The boxer engine generates 309 kW (420 PS) in both models. Whilst the GT4 represents the entry-level GT road model from Porsche, the Spyder lends itself to all kinds of curves. Both rely on highly efficient aerodynamics, a full GT chassis and powerful brakes. 

High-revving and highly emotional naturally aspirated engine
At the heart of both models is the new four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine. The naturally aspirated engine is based on the same engine family as the turbo engines in the current 911 Carrera model series. The new high-revving engine generates 309 kW (420 PS) – 35 PS more than in the GT4 predecessor models. The third generation of the Spyder even has 45 PS more. It delivers a maximum torque of 420 newton metres at between 5,000 and 6,800 rpm. The manual transmission sports cars can both break the 300 km/h barrier: the 718 Spyder has a top speed of 301 km/h, whilst the 718 Cayman GT4 can reach 304 km/h. Both models accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds from a standing start. The correlated fuel consumption of the mid-engine sports cars is 10.9 l/100 km according to the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The fascinating character of this naturally aspirated engine combines a modern gasoline particulate filter emission control system with the linear power delivery and the immediate response of a GT engine. It has a maximum engine speed of 8,000 revolutions. The unparalleled boxer sound remains untouched. New additions include technical highlights such as adaptive cylinder control. In part-load operation, it temporarily interrupts the injection process in one of the two cylinder banks, thus reducing fuel consumption. 

Piezo injectors are used for direct fuel injection for the first time ever in a high-revving engine. They split each injection process into up to five individual injections. This supports a complete – and therefore emissions-friendly – combustion process. A variable intake system with two resonance valves ensures optimum gas exchange in the cylinders. 

Aerodynamic efficiency: more downforce, the same drag
Among the striking features of the 718 Cayman GT4 is the comprehensively improved aerodynamics concept. It produces up to 50 percent more downforce, without adversely affecting drag – proof of outstanding efficiency. The aerodynamics of both models benefit enormously from the newly designed single-chamber arch rear silencer: it creates space in the rear section for a functional diffuser, which accounts for a good 30 percent of the downforce at the rear axle in the 718 Cayman GT4. The fixed rear wing is also marked by greater efficiency: it produces around 20 percent more downforce compared with its predecessor. This corresponds to an additional downforce of twelve kilograms at 200 km/h. The front section, which is optimised in the GT style, maintains the aerodynamic balance with a large front spoiler lip and so-called air curtains. The latter calm the air flow along the front wheels.

Porsche 718 Spyder: an open-top road sport car with lightweight convertible top
The new 718 Spyder is a pure machine for driving pleasure with a lightweight convertible top that can cope with top speeds. It continues the history of such famous Roadsters as the Porsche 550 Spyder and the 718 RS 60 Spyder. Open or closed, it thrills with a captivating silhouette. The roof is suitable for everyday use and can be stowed away under the boot lid in just a few steps. Unlike the GT4, the 718 Spyder has a rear spoiler that comes up automatically at 120 km/h. Thanks to the functional diffuser, it is the first model in the Boxster family to generate aerodynamic downforce at the rear axle.

High-performance GT chassis: optimised for best dynamics
For the first time ever, the 718 Spyder benefits from the high-performance GT chassis of the 718 Cayman GT4. With its superior cornering dynamics, it provides an emotional driving experience. Its further refined lightweight spring-strut front and rear axles make use of racing technologies. The direct connection to the chassis is partially by means of ball joints. The Porsche Active Suspension Management damping system with 30 mm lower suspension lowers the centre of gravity and improves lateral dynamics potential. It is specifically designed for use on the racetrack and makes the handling characteristics of the 718 Cayman GT4 sharper. The 718 Spyder also benefits from this design. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) operates with even greater sensitivity and precision here but can optionally also be deactivated in two steps. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with mechanical rear differential lock further enhances the longitudinal and lateral dynamics, cornering performance and driving pleasure. The GT4 also comes with the option of a Clubsport package. This includes a rear steel roll bar, a hand-held fire extinguisher and a six-point seatbelt on the driver’s side.

Gripping: powerful brakes, ultra-high-performance tyres
The high-performance brake system in the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 provides consistent braking that is suitable for track driving thanks to large aluminium monobloc fixed-calliper brakes. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is also available as an option. One new feature is that the 718 Spyder now runs on ultra-high-performance (UHP) tyres specially adapted by Porsche. They are part of the overall package that makes the 718 Cayman GT4 fly on the Nürburgring “Nordschleife”: its lap time on the 20.6-kilometre classic racetrack is more than ten seconds faster than its predecessor.

The new Porsche 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 are available to order now. In Germany, prices start at EUR 93,350 for the Spyder and EUR 96,206 for the Cayman GT4 – each including VAT and with country-specific equipment.

6 cilindri aspirato... c’è ancora una speranza allora al mondo

Pensavo che col nuovo modello fossero tutti 4 cilindri turbo

Io la prenderei Touring Pack! Ma avrei preferito il motore della GT3 direttamente! 😎

Macchina stupenda, però mi sarei aspettato qualcosina di più da Porsche, vero però che fare un'auto del genere che superasse tutte le normative non è facile...

Avranno faticato parecchio, vedi pesi a secco di 1420kg (😳), un mattonazzo di macchina per essere una due posti aspirata con cambio manuale (e senza PCM 🥶). Solo il filtro pesara’ Come un macigno...

Io sono dell'idea....e magari la butto lì...

 

In teoria, sappiamo che la 992 GT3 resterà aspirata e opzionabile con cambio manuale (dai video che girano al Nurburgring è chiaro dalle cambiate che c'è la cara vecchia frizione a pedale in qualche mulo).

 

In Porsche hanno visto che le serie speciali funzionano, e che i clienti pagano volentieri per averle, anche oltremodo a mio avviso.

 

Ma allora....perché non fare una versione davvero speciale della Cayman e della Boxster? Magari chiamarla GTR o simile, e ficcarci sotto davvero un motore aspirato degno di nota da 500cv? Al contempo eliminare entrambi i B4, concentrando tutte le risorse in un unico da 2 litri tondi biturbo, magari con una versione full EV per accontentare le emissioni? Metterebbero tutti d'accordo, possibili clienti soprattutto e vendite immagino. 

 

Ho sempre desiderato una cayman, ma con il B4 non mi viene proprio in mente di prenderla, al contempo.....spendere 110mila euro per una macchina che (coni dovuti distinguo) offre in uso quotidiano prestazioni analoghe a vetture che costano la metà, mi sembra eccessivo.

 

Dunque, Porsche, fai una Cayman vera, biturbo, 400/450cv a 70k euro liscia e poi una versione aspirata a tiratura limitata, non servirebbe altro. La 911 avrà sempre la sua clientela, ma così facendo per lo meno, faresti passare in showroom tutti quelli che guidano RS3, M2/M140/240, A45.

 

A mio avviso. 

 

Tornando alla GT4, bellissima, comunque, non c'è che dire, sia coupé che scoperta e bellissimo il grigio proposto sulla spyder.......

      Ecco la nuova Porsche 911 RSR che parteciperà al campionato WEC 2020.
      Come la precedente RSR, il motore Boxer 6 cilindri  da 4.2 litri è posizionato centralmente, e non più a sbalzo sul posteriore. La potenza, ufficiosa, è di 384 kW / 522 CV e dipende dai restrittori che saranno utilizzati sui tromboncini di aspirazione. Ovviamente, trazione posteriore e cambio sequenziale a 6 rapporti.

      Prendete una vecchia ed arrugginita carrozzeria di una Porsche 356 B ed adagiatela sul telaio della 964 Carrera 2. Allargatela, sabbiatela, verniciatela.
      Prendete il 6 cilindri Boxer da 3.6 litri della succitata 964. Toglietele due cilindri.
      Avrete ottenuto un Boxer 4 cilindri da 2.4 litri che potete sovralimentare con due turbocompressori Garrett su cuscinetti lasciati in bella mostra sul retro.  I cilindri sono dotati di alimentazione singola, quindi con 4 corpi farfallati; i parametri del motore sono gestiti da una centralina Motec appositamente programmata. Aggiungete due grossi intercooler 20x40 cm, uno scarico tre-due-uno, dove del catalizzatore e del silenziatore non c'è assolutamente traccia. Una manopola sul cruscotto può aumentare la spinta fino a 1,2 bar così da erogare una potenza compresa tra 325 e 400 CV su poco meno di 900 kg.
      Una sospensione coilover KW con supporti uniball può sollevare il muso di circa 4 cm per superare gli ostacoli cittadini. Altri tocchi racing comprendono pedane in vetroresina color ambra e cappucci protettivi ispirati ai modelli 917 e 935, e pavimenti in gomma Hardura di qualità marina, proprio come quelli che si trovano nelle vetture Porsche GT.
      Widow maker il ritorno.
      All'interno è un tripudio di omaggio e retroclassico alle Porsche Sport del passato a cominciare dal pomello del cambio in legno ispirato alla 917 , al volante MOMO alleggerito, così come la pedaliera. MOMO è stata talmente entusiasta del progetto che si è offerta di realizzare buona parte della componentistica, ivi compresi i cerchi.
