Is The Porsche 718 Spyder RS Worth It?

As Porsche prepares to usher in a new era of electric vehicles, enthusiasts bid a bittersweet farewell to the combustion-engined Boxers with the introduction of the Porsche 718 Spyder RS. This latest addition to the Boxer lineup embodies the essence of speed, power, and uncompromising performance.

Despite its absence of a traditional Boxer badge, the 718 Spyder RS proudly carries the legacy forward, boasting the heart of a 911 GT3 beneath its sleek exterior. Engineered by Porsche’s renowned GT department, this mid-engine Roadster has undergone a transformation unlike any before, elevating grip, focus, power, and overall performance to unprecedented levels.

However, as with any advancement, it comes at a price. The Spyder RS commands a premium over its sensational sibling, the 718 Boxer GTS 4.0 which brings us to this question: is the Spider RS truly worth the substantial investment? Dan Prosser and Andrew Frankel from The Intercooler YouTube channel took both cars for a drive to answer that very question.
