kitchensA private buyer is maybe the way to go as you will get a low ball from any dealer .if correct did yours have non Spyder wheels that would maybe alter the price a few £££ ..mine is on an Sept 11 plate 13k miles and been offered upper £40.S for mine private buyers ,the summer will bring prices up again not the time to sell anything..
kitchensWith the announcement of the new 718 GTS went on the configurator to see how much from the base price it would be for my modest spec £71800..Then did the 718 Spyder with almost identical spec a mouth watering £84360 not worth the extra £13k . The 981 with similar spec was around the £66K back in 2016 .I think the Spyder is a prettier looking model car than the GTS .I think you will see a lot off potential owners cancelling their order and going down the GTS route ..I doubt current 718 4 pot owners will be happy as it must affect the values off their cars with this announcement.
daro911 I thought the marketing idea behind the "718" was harking back to the good old 4 cylinder Porsche sports car era 1957-62 so wouldn't 982GTS had made a cleaner break between the 718 F4 and the new F6 versions
Motorheaddaro911 I thought the marketing idea behind the "718" was harking back to the good old 4 cylinder Porsche sports car era 1957-62 so wouldn't 982GTS had made a cleaner break between the 718 F4 and the new F6 versions I'll bet Porsche are now kicking themselves for not labeling the 981 replacement the 982..! And here's another anomaly: the GT4 doesn't have a 718 label, while all other Boxster and Cayman variants do (including the Spyder!). Surely the best thing to do would be to ditch the 718 label completely? Jeff
MotorheadRob, The current cars are the 982-series, type 718 (or the other way around - I'm not sure). I reckon if the 718 replacement is going to be a hybrid of some kind then Porsche will be using the F-4T as the main power unit, although your guess is as good as mine as to what engine could be used in the GT4 and Spyder if indeed they manage to soldier on into the next series. But if - as rumoured - it's to be a pure BEV then that will sound the death-knell of IC engines for the mid-engined cars because Porsche wouldn't engineer a chassis to take either an IC engine or a large battery pack and electric motors.

kitchensI think the flippers may well find the 718 more difficult to move on as opposed to the 981 when it was being sold on from new, the 718 is a £15K increase over the base price of the old model and as the GTS has been announced think it will soften the appeal for Spyder and a big saving for an owner . will wait to see when the pdk is announced for both models .
