Porsche is one of those automobile manufacturers who choose interesting and exotic names for their models. Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne, Taycan and Macan are the current lot. The only exception is their iconic 911. The Porsche Boxster model was initially produced in 1996, and to much of Porsche’s surprise the Boxster reversed the downward trend of the company’s revenue. A fun fact is that Porsche consulted Japanese car maker Toyota on sharing parts among models which contributed to their revenue increase. This is a 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster S from the fourth generation of the model’s lifecycle, with just 9,600 miles on the clock and it comes from North Carolina.
This 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster S is laid out in a gorgeous Night Blue metallic paint with a black convertible soft top that is powered. The 20” Carrera S 10-spoke wheels are powder coated and include wheel centers with full color Porsche crests and are wrapped in a set of Pirelli P-Zero tires. The model’s ‘718’ designation in blue lettering adds to the distinctiveness of the exterior outlook, as do the silver-tipped sport tailpipes. The interior is a full-fledged leather affair in black which extends to the dashboard trim and sun visors. The Porsche branded 3-spoke sports steering wheel is wrapped in leather as well, and contains paddle shifters for manual shifting, which can also be done via the solid aluminum PDK (it stands for Porsche DoppelKupplungsgetriebe in case you were wondering) gear selector. The center console features chrome trim with a double-DIN infotainment system
The 718 Boxster series comes with a variety of engines, and this 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster S packs a 2.5L (152ci) flat-four turbocharged engine, whilst the regular Boxster makes do with a 2.0L (122ci) unit. The 2.5L features a variable turbine geometry (VGT) turbocharger which increases boost at low speeds, reduces response time, improves fuel economy and performance. Putting out 350hp and 309 lb ft via the PDK dual-clutch gearbox to the rear wheels, it’s enough for a 0-60mph sprint of 4.2 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds faster than a manual gearbox-equipped 718 Boxster S. The top speed is 177mph.
