In the real-world that translates to spending less time driving top-down -- not a good thing for a roadster.
On the old spyder top speed was reduced eith the top up. (Dont remember the top speed)
And i can tell you that to drive top down above 250 km/h aint fun at all...

For the fun of it.....

I stand corrected. I stopped by my Porsche Dealer today and was talking to my sales consultant and he confirmed that the 2019 Spyder will in fact have a flat six engine with well over 400 horsepower. It will be available late next year probably close to December. Apparently the days of the flat six engine are not gone forever.

There is a chance that the 2019 GT4/Spyder will have a flat 6. But if your sales guy confirms it he is talking out of his behind. Because he simply can't know that yet.

Not this again.

He can.
And unless Porsche has a very very very last minute change of mind, it will we a flat 6.
