    Porsche 718 Summary

    Porsche’s smallest sportscar twins, the Boxster and the Cayman have got a new name that binds them together – the Porsche 718. Just like before, the drop-top roadster will be called the 718 Boxster while the hardtop coupe will be called the Cayman. The Le Mans winning 718 moniker has been revived after five decades, for the third generation 981 series car.

    For Porsche enthusiasts the most important thing is its engineering. The 718 gets two brand new engines – a 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre four-cylinder engines. Porsche has retained the signature boxer layout of the engines. The 2.0-litre 295bhp power and 380Nm torque engine will power the Boxster and the Cayman while the ‘S’ versions will feature the 345bhp, 420Nm torque 2.5-litre mill. While globally the 718s are available with manual options as well, in India you will get the seven-speed PDK dual clutch automatic gearbox with the optional Sport Chrono package that helps in quicker shifts.

    Cosmetically, there aren’t many changes to the 718 as compared to the 981 series car except for the customary nips and tucks with every new model. The chassis and suspension setup have been tweaked for better performance and the cars, the standard and the S, take 4.9 seconds and 4.4 seconds respectively to reach 100kmph and limited at a stop speed of 250kmph. Since the standard Boxster comes with an engine below 2000cc in cubic capacity, the car will have to be homologated for Indian standards.

    The front bumper has been tweaked and the three-part air dam looks sporty with the blacked out mesh grille and the LED daytime running lamps. The headlamps get the optional quad LED setup and looks menacing. While the profile is the same, the tail has got a complete makeover. The strip connecting the two LED tail lamps separates the rear bumper from the fender and looks dapper.

    On the inside, it gets the stylish Panamera-like layout with the integrated touch-screen display for the infotainment system. The classic three-spoke steering wheel gets paddle shifters for the automatic transmission. The 718 gets all creature comforts but as all Porsches, functionality takes over form even for the cabin design.

    The Porsche 718 twins are expected to compete with the BMW Z4, the Mercedes SLC 43 AMG and the Ford Mustang.

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Eye-catching design.
      • Unmatched performance.
      • Phenomenal handling.
    • Could be Better
      • Unappealing four-cylinder engine.
      • Aging cabin design.
      • Uncomfortable on broken roads.

    718 Verdict

    The Porsche 718 is the Boxster's replacement and now the cheapest car in Porsche's line-up. Porsche owners and enthusiasts have not really liked the downsizing from the naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine to a flat-four turbocharged motor. Nonetheless, the 718 lives up to the Porsche's genes by offering a blistering performance and precise handling. A well-rounded package to put a smile on your face.

    Porsche 718 Spyder - First Look

    Introduction

    Front View

    Earlier this year, Porsche India landed the drop-top version of the 718 Cayman GT4 on the Indian shores. Based on and mechanically identical to the hard-top Cayman GT4, this convertible has dropped its Boxster suffix and is now referred to as the 718 Spyder. Besides that, it has the same gorgeous looks, corner carving, throttle blipping, and the wind-in-the-hair thrill you would expect from a two-door Porsche. Recently, we got a chance to meet the 718 Spyder in person and here are the details.

    How is it on the outside?

    Left Side View

    The 718 has a low-slung stance and sits on a set of 20-inch alloy wheels. While the silver finish is offered as standard, the one we see here is optional that comes painted in satin black. Besides this, the front fascia gets the signature bi-Xenon headlights housed in a tinted cluster. For enhanced downforce, the front bumper gets large central and side air intakes as well as a lip spoiler with ‘Spyder’ embossing. 

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The rear deck flows down to a wing spoiler that is auto-deployed at speeds over 120kmph. Our personal favourite are the tinted LED tail lamps and the redesigned functional diffuser that generates proper downforce and reduces the overall lift by almost 50 per cent. And of course, it comes with the sonorous blacked-out dual-sport exhaust system that will make you grin every time you mash the throttle.

    Wheel

    Now, it is worth noting that the soft top on the Spyder has a partial electric mechanism. Once the roof latch is unhooked electrically, the fabric top needs to be detached or put back by hand. Apart from this, the badging at the rear also gets a contrast black finish. 

    How is it on the inside?

    Dashboard

    Open the frameless doors and you are greeted by a plush looking cabin. The two-way electrically adjustable Sports Seats Plus are standard fitment. Also, the heated multifunctional steering wheel, door panel armrests, and centre console are generously draped in black Alcantara that is further accentuated with the use of contrast red stitching. 

    Front Row Seats

    The headrests get the special ‘Spyder’ emblem while the internal door handles are swapped for door pulls. Other highlights of this 718 include an electric parking brake, reverse parking camera, a touchscreen infotainment system, two 12V sockets, and a 4.6-inch coloured display on the instrument cluster. This minuscule also packs in a fair amount of storage spaces. It has fore and aft luggage space, dashboard-integrated two individual cup holders, and door pockets.

    Engine

    Gear Shifter/Gear Shifter Stalk

    This topless 718 has the same mid-engine layout and is powered by the 4.0-litre inline-six, naturally-aspirated engine. Available at the tap of the right foot is prodigious 414bhp and 420Nm of peak torque. The power is dispensed solely through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels darting the sports car to 100kmph from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds. It keeps you pinned in the seat until it reaches the top speed of 301kmph.

    Rear Bumper

    The new 718 also adds a host of optional packages as standard such as the Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear differential lock, and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the ride height by 30millimetres.

    Front Logo

    With the price tag of Rs 1.60 crore, ex-showroom, the 718 Spyder is undoubtedly one of the ‘affordable’, focused, and agile two-door drop-top that one can buy in India, with no direct rivals. However, in the same price range, one can also consider more practical and powerful four-door saloon alternatives like the BMW M5 Competition and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S.
