The Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder is essentially the range-topping variant of the 982-generation Boxster that was introduced in 2016. The Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder is a limited edition car and thus it might be a little difficult for you to get your hands on this car for sale in Abu Dhabi. Nevertheless, CarSwitch.com won’t leave you uninformed about the new specs, price, the 0-60 time and more!

The Car Looks Chic

The car was unveiled alongside the 718 Cayman GT4 and it has the distinction of having the biggest and the most powerful engine that a Porsche’s entry-level vehicle ever had. It shares some similarities with the Boxster GTS but gets an upgraded a rear deck lid. The car has a wide front end with a bumper section that has received a facelift. The front also boasts of slimmer LED running lamps and brand new LED headlamps.  There is also a spoiler towards the bottom of the bumper. Right in front of the trunk lid, there is another vent. The side profile seems to have been inspired by the 718 Boxster except for some changes like new wheels and improved rear fender. Overall, the car is quite sleek and sporty.

At the back, there are redesigned taillights and decklid. The bumper also features a diffuser, unlike the regular variant. Gracing both sides of the diffuser are round pipes. Compared to the previous Spyder, the diffuser helps to increase downforce by about 50 percent.

The cabin has inherited 718 Boxster’s features. The car also gets the Communication Management system, a navigation module that can work with voice control, audio interfaces and a 110-watt Sound Package Plus. With the Connect Plus module, it will also be possible to access various online services.  The Connect Plus module for access to a wide array of online services, navigation, and Apple CarPlay, is optional.
