The 718 reacts to steering and pedal inputs almost instantaneously. The exceptional handling of the two-seat Porsche is complimented by a remarkably composed chassis that handles every situation with grace and confidence. You always feel in complete control in a 718, but more importantly you experience a level of driving enjoyment that is very hard to find in a modern automobile.
Different levels of performance
The Porsche 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman share a range of efficient and powerful engines starting with a 2.0-litre turbocharged flat-four with 300 horsepower. Next is a 2.5-litre turbo-four in the Boxster S and Cayman S trims that pushes the power to 350 hp. The new GTS 4.0 trim provides the unique sound and feel of a Porsche flat-six with 394 horsepower while the recent Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder models offer 414 horsepower. The new Cayman GT4 RS pushes the envelope even further with 493 horsepower.
Straight-line performance increases exponentially as you move up the powertrain ladder, but what never changes is the stability and cornering capability of the 718. Regardless of the version, you will experience the highest level of handling and agility both on road and on track.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the 718 is how its sporty DNA can transfer in its entirety from the Cayman to the Boxster. Removing the roof from the latter does not lead to a loss in performance or rigidity. Quite the opposite really. The 718 feels like one solid block regardless of model or version.
The other surprising element of the 718 is its ability to morph from a sharp, corner-carving performance two-seater to a composed, calm, and downright refined daily driver. This isn’t a vehicle you take out only on special occasions, this is a genuinely comfortable tourer when you want it to be, at least the base, S, and GTS trims. As for the GT4, Boxster Spyder and new GT4 RS, you will enjoy lapping exotic vehicles costing three or four times as much with ease.
