This well-honed thoroughbred of a sports car is a delight to drive.
The available seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic impersonates a manually shifted gearbox quite well.
A manual transmission is also available.
Both the 2.0- and 2.5-liter turbo engines deliver readily available power.
Handling is superlative, with impressive grip and balance, which makes the car super-responsive and fun to drive.
The ride is very firm but not too punishing.
The cabin has a premium ambience, but the button-overload controls take getting used to.
Opening or closing the well-insulated power top takes 10-seconds and can be done even on the move, up to 43-mph.
The front trunk is a bonus.
A 718 Spyder version is powered by a 414-hp, 4.0-liter six-cylinder, along with sportier suspension tuning.
FCW is optional.
