2017 Porsche 718 Boxster Review

Overview
With a striking design an incredibly agile chassis and a host of performance comfort and assistance systems the Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman live up to their celebrated status. These mid-engine sports cars combine the competitive spirit of yesterday’s legendary Porsche 718 race cars with the performance cars of tomorrow. Choose from 2 models: the Boxster convertible and the Cayman coupe. Both are available in standard and S versions. A smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission2 provides short precise throws for an engaging driving experience. Or opt for the seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic. With enhanced Porsche Stability Management you’ll have improved traction on inconsistent road surfaces giving you greater confidence and safety. Put the Boxter’s top down or open the Cayman’s windows and crank up the volume. The standard Sound Package Plus system offers excellent audio and the optional Bose or Burmester Surround Sound Systems offer even richer experiences. With a variety of colors and options to choose from you can create a Boxster as unique as you are. The Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman. For the sport of it.
Technology
The Porsche Communication Management system in 718 Caymans and Boxsters features an easy-to-use 7-inch touchscreen where you can control advanced audio navigation and communication functions. Available Porsche Car Connect lets you transfer destinations from your smartphone’s address book to your vehicle start your car remotely and more. It comes with Apple CarPlay too. Available Connect Plus gives you wireless internet access from WiFi-enabled devices like tablets smartphones and laptops.
Safety
All Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster models are equipped with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System. It includes side-impact protection elements in the doors two airbags on each side an upward-inflating head airbag in each door panel and more. 718 Boxters use front and rear safety bars to create survival space in the event of a roll-over or side impact. The front safety bar is made from super-high-strength steel. Rear safety bars are made from an aluminum-and-steel composite combining a high degree of safety with reduced weight.
Performance
Standard Porsche 718 models come with a two-liter turbocharged boxer engine that delivers 300 horsepower. S models use a turbocharged 2.5-liter with variable turbine geometry that develops 350 horses. With the standard six-speed manual gearbox 0 to 60 miles an hour takes 4.9 seconds or less—and top track speed is 170 miles per hour or more. An optional 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission featuring manual and automatic modes offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in power. Not to mention even faster acceleration and better fuel economy.
