718 Boxster

Every legend has a beginning. Strictly speaking, the legend of the 718 began back in 1953 with a simple but audacious plan: to take the offensive. Not least on the racetrack.

A rousing statement of intent followed by action: with a four-cylinder horizontally opposed engine, with a consistent lightweight construction and with a cornering performance never witnessed before. The 550 Spyder. A sports car that defied the motorsport standards of its time – because our engineers simply cannot be content with the status quo.

So, in 1953, the first ever Porsche designed specifically for motor racing made its debut on starting grids around the world. And, in doing so, it paved the way for a series of pure-bred mid-engined race cars: from 1957, it was followed by the 718 RSK Spyder – a fundamentally revised version of the 550 A Spyder; the 718 RS 60 Spyder; the 718 W-RS Spyder; and, ultimately, the 718 GTR – the coupé gracing the Spyder line-up.

Of course, every legend also begs a big question: What comes next? Our answer: we keep going – on the roads beyond the racetracks. And we write a new chapter in the history of the legend. Right here, right now.

The new Boxster is the sequel that continues the 718 era. At its heart, a fourcylinder turbocharged horizontally opposed engine beats with the same fighting spirit that delivered countless podium finishes. Its lightweight concept is the embodiment of our vast experience accumulated in endurance and hill-climbing events. In it lives the will to break with standards. And to inspire conviction. So it is entirely appropriate that it, too, should bear these three digits in its name and carry the 718 legend forward.

The new 718 Boxster was made for the sport of it. It’s a mid-engined roadster that unites the sporting spirit of the legendary Porsche 718 with the sports car of tomorrow – and transfers it to the roads of today’s world. With one goal: to take the everyday out of every day.
Compared with the previous model, the result is a new, decidedly more striking design, an even sportier chassis setup and a host of new 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 new 718 Boxster. For the sport of it.

Character

Character

The engines also impress with their direct responsiveness and an extraordinarily wide torque plateau, noticeable – immediately with each demand for throttle. What’s more, the new 718 Boxster S is also equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG), providing an even more consistent delivery of power.

The crisp and precise 6-speed manual transmission with short shift throws offers an unadulterated driving experience. Optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) enhances the experience – achieving superior values for acceleration and economy. Efficiency can promise so much pleasure.

Exterior design

Exterior design

Precise, not fanciful. Self-assured, not restrained. Low, wide and sleek. The exterior design of the new 718 Boxster ushers in a new era for the Boxster with sporty, distinctive edges and clearly defined formal contours.

The horizontal geometry of the air intake grilles makes the front end appear even wider – and lends it added bite. The wings? Unmistakably Porsche. Higher than the front lid, they have been styled to give prominence to the new design of the headlight units, which lay bare their inner workings and incorporate the LED daytime running lights.

The side profile emphasises the mid-engine layout. The wheel arches are large, designed for wheels up to 20 inches in size. One thing is clear: the new 718 models were not intended for the shelter of the garage, but for the pleasure of driving. That’s precisely why the contouring on the doors purposefully directs headwind into the large air intake grilles on either side of the car. This provides the optimum supply of air to the new turbocharged engines, a basis for their powerful forward thrust.

Another sporty detail: new exterior mirrors with v-shaped mirror base.

Interior design

Interior design

Intuitive handling, performance-oriented ergonomics, a clean design. The interior of the new 718 Boxster is also fully geared for sporty performance.

A strong emphasis on the horizontal gives the new dashboard design 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. Motorsport in pure form: the new sports steering wheel is derived from the 918 Spyder. The optional GT sports steering wheel with its smaller diameter further enhances the cockpit feel.

A Boxster hallmark: a cluster of three round instruments, with the rev counter positioned in the centre and flanked by a 4.6-inch colour screen.

The new, fundamentally revised version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) features a 7-inch multi-touchscreen. With its high-quality glass surface, it is the aesthetically perfect addition to the centre console.

All ideal prerequisites for a sporty, active lifestyle. The details? They’re down to you. Choose from a comprehensive selection of personalisation options and a new range of colours.

Performance

Performance

Creating more power is still no challenge. Not unless it’s done the Porsche way – by seeking to achieve a noticeable reduction in fuel consumption at the same time. The result is an increase of up to 25 kW (35 hp) and 100 Nm – together with a decrease of up to 14 % in fuel consumption and emissions. And the fun is only just beginning.

The newly developed four-cylinder turbocharged engines with the customary Porsche horizontally opposed arrangement demonstrate responsibility not only for the environment, but also for the adrenaline level of the driver. Acceleration is tremendous – even in the low rpm range. This quality is supplemented by an engine map configured to offer the top rev limits typical of a sports car. This means high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output.
