I decided to get off the Porsche 718 Spider reservation list because of my incision.
Release date: 2019.08.01
The other day my husband said "718 spider gave upI asked you to summarize the process and the reason in an article. Please see if it is good.
I have been booking 718 spider for a long time ago, but from the dealer representative the other dayWhat about the 718 Spider?"I was contacted.
It's a very annoying question, and of course I want it to be, but this time I decided to turn it off.
I would like to write about the reason this time.
Can not give up 981 Boxster GTS
First of all, the reason isThe 981 Boxster GTS I own now is too good and I can't let it goThat's it.
I also thought of increasing the 718 spider, but with more than that, I will have two similar cars and I have to ride more and more. And there is also a parking lot problem. When that happens "Replace with 981 Boxster GTSBut I could not get it by the following reasons.
Tone of the exhaust note
There are already many reviews of 718 spiders on Youtube overseas. And I saw most of the videos, but if I compare the tone of the exhaust note with the 981,Personally I prefer 981I'm saying that.
Of course, the 718 spider also has a good sound, and there is no dissatisfaction when viewed alone. However, I couldn't give up as being addicted to the light and loud sound of the 981 Boxster GTS, the flashy blipping sound at the shift down, and the backfire sound. It is.
And nowadays, environmental standards and noise standards become more and more severe.The 981 Boxster GTS, which can make loud noises up to this point, is rare, and there are few more in MT, so you should keep it at handI judged that. In fact, the used car price of the 981 Boxster GTS is still stable at a high price, has not changed much from a few years ago, and there is even an impression that the price has been rising recently rather than a little while ago.
The 718 spider also has 420 PS. In comparison, 981 Boxster GTS is only 330PS. The difference 90 PS!
As I used to think that “the more power you have, the better” I would choose the 718 spider without getting lost.
However, while owning a McLaren 650S or a Panamera Turbo, GT3It doesn't matter if there is powerWas noticed. If it's an outburn or a circuit main, it's a different story, but when it comes to the main road of everyday life, I think it is the most fun ("Fun" to say in English) up to about 250ps to 300ps.
To give a clear example,The 971 Panamera Turbo is 550ps, but honestly, I can hardly step on Japan.If you turn it up, it will become an insane speed in an instant with tremendous acceleration. It will exceed 160km / h if it turns 2000 rpm on the highway.
Therefore, in most everyday scenes, things will be enough at around 1200 rpm to 2000 rpm. AlreadyThe rotation area is too quiet, and it looks like the Panamera Turbo is likely to go to bedIt is. Of course, it's quite "Fun" in the sense of experiencing a violent feeling of acceleration, but the opportunity is very few and only for a moment.
The Boxster GTS is just better than that.Winding can maintain high rotation, and there is "Fun" that enjoys turning the engine and enjoying it. I used to take a trial ride to the original 981 Boxster before, but it was more than I could have had such power than GTS.
I think this is a problem only for people who use it like meThere is no setting of the front lift to raise the ride height"about"The hood is manualThis is a problem in the case of sudden heavy rains on long distance touring, driving on hard roads, and underground parking when commuting.
Well, if I take care, the height of the car will be somehow low, and the hood will not take so much time, so I only need to add a little time, but I was not able to decide to give up the comfort of the 981 Boxster GTS. 'S.
This is a big problem.This 718 spider and GT4 are right-handed specifications that are officially imported into JapanIt has been announced that the dealer representativeThe possibility of getting the left handle is lowIt was.
Currently, I own both right-handed (both AT and MT) and left-handed (both AT and MT) cars at my home, and they alternate on a daily basis, but the left-handed one for imported manual cars I like it better. The reason is,It is easier to do shift operation with the dominant hand (I'm right hand)about. And the turn signal is to be divided into the left hand, and the shift is the right hand.
The BMW 320i in my house is a right-hand drive with an MT car, but sometimes the left hand feels busy. Because shift operation and turn signal are done only with the left hand, when you need a little quick operation, you may think that if there is a turn signal on the right.(If you get used to it, I don't care so much, but the story in comparative theory)
Also, except for Porsche, in the case of European cars,In many cases, switches on the center console are often used on the left side.For example, Porsche's car stereo volume and sport mode buttons are on the left side, and it's a bit far from the right handle and difficult to operate.
For these reasons, if you are a manual car, you really want to ride with the left steering wheel.
By the way, as an aside, regardless of AT or MT, I can choose the left without hesitation if the right and left can be freely selected.
There are things such as not being able to get a ticket at the parking lot and it is difficult to see when passing, but even if you compensate for it, you'll be attracted by
- As we drive at position near the sidewalk, we are easy to recognize pedestrian and think that it is safer
- A point that is easy to move to the left end even on a narrow road
- As it is easy to export overseas, the used car price is stable after many years of riding
My First Porsche
And the last reason isThe 981 Boxster GTS is my first PorscheThat's why. The reason for this is completely emotional. Finally, you can buy Porsche, choose your own fine-tuned options, make it your favorite specification, and wait for about 10 months to get it.
Therefore, I am more attached than any Porsche, and I can not feel that way now because of sadness and sadness to let go of this.
But I want 718 spider though
Do you not buy something? No, I can not buy it? It seems like the reason is lined up, excuses, but I think 718 spider and GT4 are good. I want to own it if I can own it. It's a six-cylinder NA engine and a dream-like specification on the 718 chassis performance, which evolved from 981. So, if you are ordering the 718 Spider or GT4, I hope you are looking forward to it.
Also, if you are a blog reader who has been delivered, I would love to see it in your own possession, and I would be glad if you could also contribute a report to the Porsche Owners File.
