Could have, should have, would have.
Life's too short for 'what ifs'.
Too short for unfulfilled daydreams.
The new 718 Boxster makes a clear statement: let's go! It interprets the 718 legend by embracing the concept of freedom characteristic of a pure-bred roadster: plenty of twists and turns, plenty of headwind, and plenty of adrenaline.
In short, a direct and open driving experience.
Ideal prerequisites, then, for the most exciting workout of all: life itself.
The new 718 Boxster boasts a new turbocharged horizontally opposed engine for increased power, considerably more torque, and a high RPM limit while still delivering the characteristically powerful acoustics of a Porsche horizontally opposed unit, sounding even more urgent with the new sports exhaust system.
The S models draw their power from a capacity of 2.
The result is 350 hp at 6,500 rpm.
The maximum torque of 309 lb.
is available across an impressively wide range from 1,900 to 4,500 rpm.
This engine -- like the engine in the 911 Turbo -- also comes equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG).
VTG provides an even more consistent delivery of power and, in turn, significantly greater driving pleasure.
Propulsive potential? Top track speed is 177 mph.
The S models with PDK and Launch Control complete the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 4.
Sharp, snappy, clean -- inside and out.
The design is striking, while the rear end with accent trim looks even wider.
The cock pit is newly styled, the specification exquisite.
The color range has been extended.
The horizontal geometry of the air intakes makes the front end appear even wider -- and lends it added bite.
The fenders? Unmistakably Porsche.
Higher than the front lid, they have been styled to give prominence to the new design of the headlights, which lay bare their inner workings and incorporate the LED daytime running lights.
The side profile emphasizes the midengine layout.
The wheel arches are large, designed for wheels up to 20 inches in size.
One thing is clear: the new 718 models were not intended for the shelter of the garage, but for the pleasure of driving.
That's precisely why the contouring on the doors purposefully directs headwind into the large air intakes on either side of the car.
This ensures the optimum supply of air to the new turbocharged engines, a basis for their powerful forward thrust.
Another sporty detail: new exterior mirrors with v-shaped mirror base.
When closed, the fabric roof of the 718 Boxster completes the sleek silhouette typical of a sport car.
At the push of a button, it opens and closes fully automatically in 9 seconds -- even on the move, up to a speed of 31 mph.
And yet it's anything but conformist.
The taillights are slim, their inner workings fashioned three-dimensionally.
Four-point LED lights are incorporated into each of the horizontal rear light housing.
Between the two taillights, an accent trim makes the rear end look even wider.
The wing above extends automatically at a speed of 75 mph, reducing lift to provide even better roadholding performance.
