The 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S has been showcased at the Geneva Motor Show. The Porsche 718 Spyder from the late 50s and the early 60s was one of the most iconic cars in the company’s history. Porsche has set the bar pretty high for the new Boxster with the 718 moniker.
The Porsche 718 Boxster S has a downsized and turbocharged engine. Instead of the traditional Porsche 6 cylinder flat engine, the new Boxster has a 2.0 liter turbo boxer four cylinder engine that generates 300hp. There is also a 2.5 liter variant that generates 350hp. The new engines are smaller and also more powerful. They offer a significant improvement in torque as well. With the new engines, the Porsche 718 Boxster S achieves the 0-100kmph time in just about 4.0 seconds.
Apart from the engines, there have been changes in the styling as well. The Porsche 718 Boxster S has an updated instrument console, interior design and there is new equipment as well. The body work features redesigned panels and lines that add a new sense of style to the car. The Porsche 718 Boxster S will go on sale in April in Europe. The car will start selling in the USA in June. We can also expect there to be a Cayman version with a fixed roof later this year.
