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 Sports steering wheel is derived from the 918 Spyder. The optional GT sports 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 220kW (300PS) at 6,500rpm. Maximum torque: 380Nm. With
The 2.5-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine.
The S models have a 2.5-litre displacement. The result is 257kW (350PS) at 6,500rpm. Maximum torque: 420Nm. 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 294kW (400PS) at 7,000rpm. The maximum torque: 420Nm. Combined with PDK: 430Nm. The sprint from 0 to 100km/h: 4.0 seconds when combined with PDK and Launch Control. Top speed: 288km/h. Combined with 6-speed manual transmission, it can even reach 293km/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 adjust the damping force on each wheel, based on driving style and current road conditions. The body is also lowered by 10mm. PASM has two modes, which can be selected using a button on the centre 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 sports suspension.
The 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models are equipped with PASM sports suspension. The body sits 20mm 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 aluminium 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 aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers in red. The brake discs have a diameter of 350mm at the front and 330mm 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.
Proven in motorsport: the
The Sports steering wheel with three-spoke design is lightweight and functional. The small centre pad and the decorative ring encircling the
The optional GT sports 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 on-board computer as well as many audio, telephone and navigation functions.

Superior safety meets sporty design in the form of optional LED main headlights including PDLS Plus. Optimum visibility is assured by integrated fourpoint daytime running lights, the headlight cleaning system and dynamic range control.
Automatic distance control.
Available as an option in conjunction with
Lane Change Assist.
Optional Lane Change Assist uses radar-based technology to monitor the area behind the vehicle and blind spots. The system issues a visual warning signal in the window triangle trims whenever a vehicle approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots.
ParkAssist and reversing camera.
Optional ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. ParkAssist can be optionally upgraded to include monitoring of the front end with additional sensors. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a schematic representation of the vehicle. The optional reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of a camera image and dynamic guidelines on the PCM screen.
Speed limit indicator.
The optional camera-based speed limit indicator informs you of speed restrictions and ‘no overtaking’ zones (start and end). Notifications appear on the display in the instrument cluster and on the PCM screen.
