Get Up Close With Porsche’s 718 Boxster In New Video

Porsche’s 718 Boxster is heading to Geneva , but before it makes its live debut, the Germans want to show us a new video focusing on its design.

Even though Porsche claims extensive revisions on the outside, blink and you’ll probably miss most of them, except perhaps for the new headlights with integrated daytime running lights, standard bi-xenon and optional full LED.

At the rear, the “Porsche” lettering is flanked by new LED “3d” taillights, while there’s also an updated bumper that gained an incorporated diffuser with a central-mounted dual-exhaust pipe.

As for the interior, there’s a redesigned instrument panel, an improved Porsche Communication Management infotainment system and a revised steering wheel.

As with most Porsche model updates, it’s more about what can’t be seen with a naked eye, starting with the powertrains, as a 2.0-liter four-banger replaces the naturally aspirated flat-six 2.7-liter in the base version producing an extra 35hp and 100Nm (74lb-ft), with a 2.5-liter turbo four replacing the normally-aspirated 3.4-liter
flat-six in the Boxster S offering an additional
35hp and 60Nm (44lb-ft).

Engineers have also enhanced steering directness by 10 percent, tweaked the chassis to improve its cornering abilities while the PASM system can drop the car’s ride height by 10mm or 20mm with the Sport Chassis option. The Sport Chrono Package was tweaked too and it offers Normal, Sport and Sport Plus modes on models equipped with optional PDK.
