Performance The new 718 Boxster S

Porsche - Performance


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 35 hp and 100 Nm – together with a decrease of up to 14 % in fuel consumption and emissions. And the fun is only just beginning.

The newly developed four-cylinder turbocharged engines with the customary Porsche horizontally opposed 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 top rev limits typical of a sports car. This means high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged horizontally opposed engine.

The 718 Boxster is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged horizontally opposed engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication. The unit develops 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 new 718 Boxster accelerates from 0 to 60 mp/h in only 4.7 seconds, reaching a top track speed of 170 mph.

The 2.5-liter turbocharged horizontally opposed engine.

The 718 Boxster S draws its power from a capacity of 2.5 liters. 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 1,900 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, significantly greater driving pleasure. Propulsive potential? Top track speed is 177 mph. The new 718 Boxster S with PDK and Launch Control completes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 4.0 seconds.
