The New 718 Boxster
Could have, should have, would have. Life’s too short for ‘what ifs’. Too short for unfulfilled daydreams. The 718 Boxster makes a clear statement: let’s go! It interprets the 718 legend by embracing the concept of freedom characteristic of a pure-bred roadster: plenty of twists and turns, plenty of headwind, and plenty of adrenaline. In short, a direct and open driving experience. Ideal prerequisites, then, for the most exciting workout of all: life itself.
The Boxster is the sequel that continues the 718 era. At their heart, a turbocharged flat-four engine beats with the same fighting spirit that delivered countless podium finishes. In them lives the will to break with standards. And to inspire conviction. So it is entirely appropriate that they, too, should bear these three digits in their name and carry the 718 legend forward.The 718 models were made for the sport of it. They are mid-engined roadsters that unite the sporting spirit of the legendary Porsche 718 with the sports car of tomorrow – and transfer it to the roads of today’s world. With one goal: to take the everyday out of every day. Compared with the previous models, the result is a decidedly more striking design, an even sportier chassis setup and a whole host of performance, comfort and assistance systems. And, of course, up to 350 units of turbocharged horsepower (257 kW) – despite a considerable reduction in fuel consumption. Only one question remains unanswered: what are you still waiting for? The 718 Boxster. For the sport of it.
Intuitive handling, performance-oriented ergonomics, a clean design. The interior of the 718 models is also fully geared for sporty performance. A strong emphasis on the horizontal gives the dashboard design of the 718 models a striking appearance. And that’s without sacrificing the excellent ergonomics for which Porsche is renowned: the ascending centre console shortens the reach between the steering wheel and the gear lever/selector, while the clear arrangement of function buttons saves time.
