Porsche 718 Boxster and Boxster S Engine Redesign: Modernity, Power, Tradition

2-17 Porsche Boxter and Boxter S Redesign

You don’t need a list to know that a Porsche is the premier choice in luxury cars, but here are 5 reasons to check out the 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S Engine rebuild—the modern take on a sports car that has been making history since the first Boxster hit the road 20 years ago.

Preserving tradition, welcoming progress

Porsche may be redesigning these two-seaters, but the four-cylinder flat engine tradition of the historical Porsche 718 champion sports cars remains. The engineers behind the rebuild left nothing unchecked. The new model line brings revisions to almost every part of the vehicle.  In other words, out with the old, in with the improved.

More power, yet more efficiency

Porsche is the leader of driving pleasure, and the new 718 Boxster and Boxster S center around the power under the hood: a four-cylinder flat engine with turbocharging. The turbo engine packs the punch you need and brings you a power upgrade of 35 horsepower, while maintaining the integrity of your carbon footprint with efficiency improvements of up to 13%.

Turn up the torque

The turbocharged engine doesn’t just boost fuel economy. The 2-liter engine of the 718 Boxster delivers a torque gain of 100 Newton meters, while the S model 2.5-liter engine brings a gain of 140 Newton meters. What does this mean for you? You gain a whole lot of speed and whole lot of fun.

And she’s a looker

Two things a Porsche should always be: elite and distinguishable. The 718 Boxster and Boxster S design upgrades make them impossible to miss. A wider front and rear end bring an element of solidity to the vehicle, and the rear accent strip with a Porsche badge will make onlookers utter one word—“whoa.”

Sport performance, luxury design

Today’s 718 Boxster mimics the original 718 in street performance. The reconfigured steering system is 10% more direct, making the sports car more athletic and more responsive. Hit the streets with maximum sport power and enjoy the interior luxury of the new Porsche Communication Management system, keeping you digitally connected at every twist and turn.

The launch of the the new 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S begins April 30 in Europe, but don’t wait to get behind the wheel of a Porsche. Head in for a test drive of one of the many luxury models at the Porsche Auto Gallery Woodland Hills.
