Porsche 718 Spyder Convertible (2019 - )

For hardcore sports car fans and – especially – Porsche aficionados the 718 Spyder is a truly special machine and evidence the brand hasn’t totally forgotten its purist roots. With its big engine, manual-only transmission and spicy handling it’s a car for drivers, its unique style and limited availability setting it apart from the 718 Boxster on which it is based.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

This entirely depends on your frame of reference, and also how friendly you are with your local Porsche dealership. At face value the 718 Spyder is a very expensive car and costs a hefty premium over the regular 718 Boxster on which it is based. Porsche is also masterful at convincing its customers to spend big on extras and it’s easy to add a hefty five-figure number to the price with just a few ‘essential’ options. The 4.0-litre engine is thirsty, chuffs out a lot of CO2 and you’ll be murdered on tax and other running costs in comparison with any regular car. Porsche is also very clever at making sure demand outstrips supply of its special edition models like this, meaning a bunfight at dealers to get one. If you’re deemed worthy you’re in luck because you’ll likely be able to sell for a premium and even turn a profit, known as ‘flipping’ and deeply unpopular with those who don’t get on the dealer’s list. The only dilemma for those who do? Drive it and enjoy it as one of the best modern sports cars at any price or sell it for a fast buck?
