Performance 718 Boxster Models



Creating more power is still no challenge. Not unless it’s done the Porsche way – by seeking to achieve a noticeable reduction in fuel consumption at the same time. The result is an increase of up to 25 kW (35 hp) and 100 Nm – together with a decrease of up to 14 % (NEDC) in fuel consumption and emissions. And the fun is only just beginning.

The turbocharged flat-four engines with the customary Porsche horizontally opposed piston arrangement demonstrate responsibility not only for the environment, but also for the adrenaline level of the driver. Acceleration is tremendous – even in the low rpm range.

This quality is supplemented by an engine map configured to offer the high rev limits typical of a sports car. This means high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output. Every drive becomes a sporting event – no matter how fast you go.

What hasn’t changed is the vehicle’s characteristically low and central centre of gravity – the very reason why Porsche mid-mounted engines have always been so agile. The typically resonant Porsche sound is also an intrinsic feature of the 718 models, providing the fitting soundtrack on the way to ever new heights of performance.

The 2.0-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine

The base models are equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged and horizontally opposed engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated drysump lubrication. The unit develops 220 kW (300 hp) at 6,500 rpm. Maximum torque is 380 Nm. Thanks to turbocharged induction, it is available as low as 1,950 rpm and prevails until 4,500 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 275 km/h.

The 2.5-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine

The S models draw their power from a capacity of 2.5 litres. The result is 257 kW (350 hp) at 6,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 420 Nm is available across an impressively wide range from 1,950 to 4,500 rpm. This engine – like the unit in the 911 Turbo – also comes equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG). VTG provides an even more consistent delivery of power and, in turn, greater driving pleasure. Propulsive potential? Top speed is 285 km/h. With PDK and Launch Control, the S models sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
