2. Model History

The 718 Boxster was introduced in January 2016, and premiered at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The 718 Cayman joined the range in April at the Beijing Motor Show. The 718 featured two new horizontally-opposed flat-4 turbocharged engines at 2.0L and 2.5L for the 'S' models with increased torque and horsepower with lower fuel consumption. The exterior of the 718 Boxster and Cayman is very similar to the third generation, more of an evolution than a redesign. The most notable changes are to the rear of the car, which now has a long black-trim bar across the rear connecting the two taillights. The headlights and bumper are also heavily reworked. On the sides, the mirrors have been redesigned, taking hue from the SportDesign mirrors on the GT3. Much like the exterior, the interior has very few major changes with the most notable being the PCM 4.0 replacing the previous PCM 3.1 found in the 981.

Despite initial pessimism over the loss of two cylinders the new 718 in both the Boxster and Cayman has continued to wow people with its mechanical improvements over the 981. The 718 offered greater handling and acceleration than the outgoing 918, with power coming quicker and at lower revs whilst the steering was tidier and more direct. This whole new experience was capped off by being voted Motor Trends 2nd Best Drivers Car in 2017.

Our car was first registered in June 2019, with a list price of £56,000 that included £11,000 worth of Porsche options. Having covered just 1108 miles our example is in pristine showroom condition, benefiting from a Swiss Vax protective coating to the exterior that was completed by the supplying Porsche dealer at a cost of £660.00.

3. Interior

The interior is stereotypically German on the finish, with only the use of the finest leather hides and polished metals, thus creating an environment mixed with excitement and comfort. From factory this car was finished with black leather hard back shelled sport seats decorated with black twin needle stitch detail, black carpets, the black leather dash that wraps around the driver and passenger, the black leather trimmed door cards and finalised with the aluminium interior inlays that complement the cabin space so very well. This lovely one keeper example also boasts an excellent array of high-end Porsche factory options, meaning that every trip no matter the distance is perfectly composed and highly enjoyable.

4. Exterior

Taking inspiration from the previous 981, the 718 comes with small tweaks and updates that add not only to the styling of the new car but also improve the handling and aerodynamics. Our car is presented in the Agate Grey metallic paint finish with the 20" Carrera Sport alloy wheels finished in high-gloss black. The exterior looks stunning with or without the black fabric convertible roof in place with extra touches coming in the form of the black exhaust tips, 718 Boxster designation to the rear being finished in black and is finished with the updated front end having that so well know Porsche badge located front and centre.
