The two super cars get six-speed manual transmission options to retain the genuine flavour of managing shifts and while the GT4 represents the entry-level GT road, the Spyder is best suited for an open-top, dynamic drive experience.

Porsche says that the 718 Spyder is distinguished by a lightweight convertible top that provides a dramatic silhouette reminiscent of its famous predecessors. It also has a rear spoiler that is auto activated at speeds of over 120 kmph and a functional diffuser allows the vehicle to generate aerodynamic downforce over the rear axle. There is also a high performance GT chassis of the 718 Cayman GT4 here.
