7-speed PDK, featuring both a manual and an automatic mode, is available as an option and offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power. Not to mention even faster acceleration performance and a further reduction in fuel consumption.
A first for the 718 Boxster: in manual mode, the shift direction simulates that of racing cars – to the rear to shift up, forwards to shift down. For a racetrack driving experience wherever you are.
A coasting function becomes available where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to avoid deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, enabling it to coast for longer distances.
