Latest Boxster has Greater Power and Efficiency


Twenty Years Later, Boxster Features New Engine

The newest versions of the Porsche Boxster, named 718 and 718S after the mid-engine sports car that dominated the racing circuit in the mid-20th Century, features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 350 horsepower. This newly developed engine comes in a 2.0-liter configuration for the 718, pushing out 300 horses. The 718S has a 2.5-liter motor that also has a turbocharger that uses variable turbine geometry to generate 35 more horses than its predecessor. Both engines are also 14 percent better when it comes to fuel mileage than previous Boxsters. Check in with the pros at Porsche of Tucson in late June when the new Boxster models are due to arrive.

Retuned Suspension Provides Premium Driving Thrills

With a new electric steering system and completely retuned suspension, the 718 Porsche Boxster pays tribute to its namesake with superior handling and agility. Add the optional Porsche Active Suspension Management system and you get a little lower ride height as well as the ability to select the type of suspension you need for your day’s drive. Choose the comfort setting for the smoothest ride, or dial it up to Sport to help you take corners more aggressively.

Wider Stance Provides Athletic Appearance

Along with a new engine and retuned suspension, Porsche let designers take a sculpting knife to the body. The result is a wider front end with large cooling intakes to service the turbocharger. The profile is sharper than before, with independent wings and large inlet air panels that deliver a dynamic look. The wide rear fascia mirrors the front. Three-dimensional LED taillights and four-point brake lights help your Boxster stand out from the crowd

Sport Chrono Package Ups Driving Ante

Now you don’t have to spring for a 911 to get the Porsche Sport Chrono Package. Buy a 718 or 718S and the package is available, allowing you to program the engine and transmission for the best performance. You can still chose the Normal, Sport or Sport Plus setting, or fine tune the response to your liking. Porsche Communication Management is a standard feature on the new Boxster, delivering a 110-watt sound package along with audio interfaces and hands free phone connectivity. Check in with Porsche of Tucson at the beginning of Summer to see how the new Boxster has upped the ante on a premium driving experience.
