A strong emphasis on the horizontal gives the dashboard design of the 718 models a striking appearance. Without sacrificing the excellent ergonomics for which
Pure motorsport: the sport steering wheel is derived from the 918 Spyder. The optional GT Sport Steering Wheel with its smaller diameter further enhances the cockpit feel. It is included as standard in the 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models, and in the 718 GTS 4.0 models finished in Race-Tex, along with numerous other GTS specific interior items. The instrument cluster includes three circular instruments with an integrated 4.6-inch colour screen. Typical of
The 2.0-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine.
The 718 and 718 T models come equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication. It develops 300 hp at 6,500 rpm. Maximum torque: 280 lb-ft. With
The 2.5-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine.
The S models have a 2.5-litre displacement. The result is 350 hp at 6,500 rpm. Maximum torque: 309 lb-ft. This unit – like the one in the 911
The 4.0-litre six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine.
The 718 GTS 4.0 models offer an enormous performance spectrum. Guaranteed by the powerful 4.0-litre six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with its full 394 hp at 7,000 rpm. The maximum torque: 309 lb-ft. Top track speed: 293 km/h.
The 718 models are equipped with a smooth 6-speed manual transmission optimally matched to the respective engine characteristics. The gear lever in the 718 T models is shortened for fast, sporty shift throws. The result: short shift times and an even sportier and more authentic driving experience.
The 7-speed PDK with manual and automatic mode is available as an option. For extremely fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power. And all with even better acceleration performance. In manual mode, the shift direction simulates that of race cars – to the rear to shift up, forwards to shift down. For a race track driving experience wherever you are.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
The optional PASM is an electronic damping control system. The system continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on driving style and current road conditions. The body is also lowered by 10 mm (0.39 in). PASM has two modes, which can be selected using a button on the center console: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’, where the setup is much firmer. The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.
PASM Sport Suspension.
The 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models are equipped with PASM Sport Suspension. The body sits 20 mm (0.78 in) lower. The springs are harder and shorter and the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are stiffer. The result: direct, agile handling and top cornering performance. For a little more ground clearance and comfort,
Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
All 718 models are equipped with enhanced
Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV).
Optional for the 718 and 718 S models, standard for the 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models:
Electromechanical power steering.
A direct steering system that lives up to its name. The direct steering ratio ensures agile turn-in and a sporty driving experience – with the usual high level of comfort. The comfort-orientated Power steering Plus is available as an option.
Performance counts in sport. True for the engine. True for the brakes. That’s why the 718, 718 T and 718 S models are equipped with fourpiston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers. In the 718
In the 718 GTS 4.0 models the brakes were further reinforced and adapted to the high performance: the front axle is equipped with six-piston aluminum brakes monobloc fixed brake calipers in red. The brake discs have a diameter of 350 mm at the front and 330 mm at the rear. To make them tougher yet lighter and enable a more rapid response – even under extreme loads – the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction. The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are crossdrilled and internally vented, which helps to provide improved wet braking and optimum cooling.
The sport steering wheel with three-spoke design is lightweight and functional. The small centre pad and the decorative ring encircling the
The optional GT Sport Steering Wheel has a smaller diameter. The spokes are finished in black, the silver-coloured inlays are screw-fastened. For a motorsport-derived look? Definitely. Above all, though, to emulate a motorsport driving feel. Included as standard in the 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models. In the 718 GTS 4.0 models it is finished with the proven motorsport material Race-Tex. Heating and multifunction controls are optionally available for all steering wheels. These give you fingertip access to the 4.6-inch colour display and therefore the onboard computer as well as many audio, telephone and navigation functions.
