Compared to the 3.4-liter GTS, the 3.8-liter Spyder engine boosts power by 45 to 375 hp, and torque by 36 to 309 lb-ft. For maximum performance, we suggest you keep the revs between 4,500 and 7,000 rpm, where urge, thrust, and throttle response are at their peak. In this car, launch control is conducted simply by both feet — and one finger which may want to stab the traction-/stability-control button.
It’s worth noting that the engine represents a bit of a philosophical shift for the Spyder. The last-gen edition trumped the S in power, but it shared that car’s 3.4-liter six-cylinder and the increase in muscle was just 10 horsepower—Porsche clearly isn’t messing around this time. What’s not a shift is how the car’s shifted; it’s still manual-only, with the driver working through a six-speed stick.

Dropping the clutch at 5,000 rpm produces just enough wheelspin to conjure a broad grin. When conditions are right, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes 4.3 seconds, which is a mere tenth less impressive than the GT4’s claimed acceleration. Against the stopwatch, the ultimate Boxster is a half-second quicker than the Boxster S, and 0.4-second quicker than the GTS. That is a significant gap in drag-racing terms if not real-world relevance, and the same applies to the price. At $83,095, the Spyder undercuts the Cayman GT4 by $2,500, but it costs $18,200 more than the Boxster S which is, especially in combination with the PDK gearbox, the better everyday car.
