September 12th, 2018 by
It’s no doubt that the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxsteris one of the most exciting and iconic cars on the Lowcountry roads. It’s powerful Porsche rumble under the hood is made possible by the vehicle’s turbocharged flat-four cylinder engine, which yields 280 lb.-ft. of torque. With this mighty engine, the Boxster can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 170 miles per hour.

Of the engine, Porsche explains, “Turbocharging also helps the powertrains of the Porsche 718 Boxsterand Boxster S to be up to 14 percent more efficient than the previous engines according to the New European Driving Cycle.”

Available in both PDK and six-speed manual, the Porsche 718 Boxsteris a roadster to admire with its unparalleled power and undeniable sharp aesthetic.

Design wise, every detail of the Porsche 718 Boxsteris immaculate. The interior follows through with the exterior’s consistent emphasis on horizontal lines and features pristine functionality. Leather trim covers the storage compartment and shows off the perfectly stitched lines. A Porsche Sport multifunction steering wheel pulls everything together. A key element inside the new 718 Porsche Boxster is the high-resolution, 7-inch color touchscreen with a glass cover, proximity sensors and multi-touch gesture control. The sound system from Bose or Burmester is optionally available if desired.

For those seeking more speed, in the last quarter of 2017, Porsche released the Porsche 718 Boxster GTS. The GTS model features a new intake plenum and an optimized turbocharger, giving it 15 horsepower more than the 718 Boxster S model. Porsche explains, “The maximum torque of up to 317 lb-ft (309 lb-ft on manual transmission models) is available across a broad power band from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm (1,900 to 5,500 rpm on manual transmission models) and further improves acceleration. When equipped with the optional PDK transmission the GTS model is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The top track speed is 180 mph.”
