The heart: a 300 hp powerful turbocharged four-cylinder horizontally opposed engine located just inches behind the driver. While the center of gravity sits deep. The Sport Suspension (-20 mm) brings you closer to the road – and even closer to the feeling of being alive.
The 718 T models: highly dynamic, puristic, authentic. Porsche Communication Management (PCM)? Would only distract from your driving pleasure. Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)? It can – but it doesn’t have to. Instead: Sport Seats Plus, door pull loops, and a GT Sport Steering Wheel with mode switch. That’s all it takes to ensure that the everyday can no longer follow you.
2.0-liter turbocharged horizontally opposed engine producing 300 hp and 280 lb-ft.
Exhaust system with centrally positioned twin tailpipe made of stainless steel in distinctive High Gloss Black.
Superior meets sporty design in the form of optional LED headlights including PDLS Plus. Optimum visibility is assured by integrated fourpoint daytime running lights, the headlight cleaning system and dynamic range control.
Exterior mirrors, decorative side logo and roll-over bar in Agate Grey.
20-inch Carrera S wheels painted in Titanium Grey.
The optional GT Sport Steering Wheel has a smaller diameter. The spokes are finished in black, the silver-colored inlays are screw-fastened. For a motorsport-derived look? Definitely. Above all, though, to emulate a motorsport driving feel. Included as standard in the 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models. In the 718 GTS 4.0 models it is finished with the proven motorsport material Race-Tex. Heating and multifunction controls are optionally available for all steering wheels. These give you fingertip access to the 4.6-inch color display and therefore the onboard computer as well as many audio, telephone and navigation functions.
T-specific equipment including GT Sport Steering Wheel, Sport Seats Plus (two-way) with seat centers in Sport-Tex, ‘718 T’ logo on the headrests and door pull loops.
The Sport Chrono Package is standard in the 718 T and 718 GTS 4.0 models and available as an option for the other 718 models. It allows an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. And launches you to unprecedented sporty heights. With significant help from the mode switch on the steering wheel derived from the 918 Spyder. There are four settings to choose from without taking your hand entirely off the wheel: Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual, which allows you to adjust the vehicle more closely to your personal driving style.
The road is perhaps the only place in the world where you can still listen to music without being disturbed. And when it’s done, it should be done right – together with the major manufacturer of premium quality sound systems in Germany. The result is a sound performance of the highest level, specially matched to your 718 Boxster or 718 Cayman.
Available as an option in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this system regulates the speed of your 718 fully independently based on the distance from the vehicle in front. Radar sensors in the front fascia scan the road ahead.
Optional Lane Change Assist (LCA) uses radarbased technology to monitor the area behind the vehicle and blind spots. The system issues a visual warning signal in the window triangle trims whenever a vehicle approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots.
Standard ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. The reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and maneuvering. Help is provided in the form of a camera image and dynamic guidelines on the PCM screen.
