What the Critics Say
Porsche 718 Boxster Features
You’ll have your choice of two proven turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, offering either 300 or 350 horsepower along with instantaneous acceleration. It takes just 4.4 seconds to rocket from 0-60 in the Porsche 718 Boxster S. Drivers can also choose from a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed PDK transmission that features a manual shift mode for lightning-fast gear changes with zero interruption in power delivery. The iconic Porsche exhaust note is an essential aspect of the 718 Boxster, giving you a fitting soundtrack as you rocket down the interstate. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) is an optional system for enhancing driving dynamics and stability, helping to instill confidence behind the wheel.
Function and design are seamlessly linked inside the Porsche 718 Boxster. Its ergonomic Sport steering wheel, ascending center console, and three round instruments including the tachometer positioned in the center help create an environment that’s totally centered around the driving experience. Leather and Alcantara® upholstery help hold you firmly in place while thickly-bolstered Sport seats give you exceptional support during high-speed cornering maneuvers. The latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system features a 7-inch multitouch screen and optional navigation module to enhance form and function with a yet another component: virtually boundless possibilities.
In addition to its high-quality glass surface, Porsche Communication Management is an eye-catching complement to the center console. Standard mobile phone preparation allows a Bluetooth® connection to be established automatically. You’re also able to enjoy wireless internet access inside your 718 Boxster using your WiFi-enabled client devices tethered to your smartphone or a separate SIM card. Included in the optional online navigation package are Google® Street View and Google® Earth services with 360° views and satellite imagery.
