The New Porsche 718 has been spotted, and photos have emerged of the car undergoing development and testing ahead of its release for next year. This is most likely to be the most powerful Boxster ever made. The testing vehicle isn’t disguised very well, with the rear tail of the car having Porche written a long it. Also, the canvas roof marking it out as the flagship spyder. More exciting features is the larger alloy wheels, stronger brakes and a twin centrally mounted exhaust. This all hints and corresponds to increased performance. The Boxster Spyder has been the most compelling model in the lineup. This will also continue with the new version

Even though the standard edition 718 Boxster range being powered entirely by a V4 turbocharged engine, the Spyder is expected to make use of the 4-litre V6 unit. Which will be shared with the upcoming Cayman GT4. The last Spyder was powered by a 370bhp 3.8 litre flat six. This was lifted from a 911 Carrera. However, to keep the Porsche 718 engine naturally aspirated it will be forced to turn to its GT division. There is no word on power for the new Porsche 718. Although, the 4 litre flat six is currently rate at 493bhp in the 911 GT3. This figure is expected to reduce to make sure the Porsche 718 fits within the model hierarchy. Also, it is likely that the model will be offered exclusively with a six sped manual gearbox.

More changes to the Porsche 718 will include a stripped back cabin to help shed weight. Additionally, more performance-based tyres will be featured.

Next-generation Mazda MX-5 to be the most efficient yet

If you’re a fan of Mazda, you’re going to be excited to learn that the upcoming next-generation Mazda MX-5 is said to be the most efficient yet; however, there’s a catch – it’s not expected to go on sale until 2021.

Mazda is world-renowned for its incredibly powerful vehicles that tend to offer great performance without sacrificing any other important features, such as appearance. The brand knows what it’s doing, having produced a great number of unique cars over the years, so it’s always exciting to hear what it has in store for us next.

Although, the Mazda MX-5 still has a few years to go, before it’s replaced, the brand has teased us about what we can expect form the next-generation of the highly popular model.

Even though the size of the MX-5 has decreased over the years, as the vehicle got smaller and more efficient, the brand revealed that it’s fairly certain, the car won’t get any smaller; however, it is going to become much lighter.

Due, to the decreasing costs of lightweight materials, carmakers are now able to make their vehicles lighter and more efficient, which is always great as it improves performance and offers a much more pleasant driving experience.

Much hasn’t been revealed about the next-gen MX-5, but it’s reportedly scheduled to go on sale at some point in 2021. This gives Mazda a few years to make it as good as possible, and improve on many different things, to make the next-generation MX-5, the best to date.

Luxury sports cars are becoming more popular again, which many manufacturers are using to their advantage. By filling the gaps in the market, Mazda could soon experience great success, if it’s able to achieve what it has set out to do.

Whether, the next Mazda MX-5 will truly be as efficient as the brand promises, remains to be seen; however, we can definitely expect it to be a solid vehicle, as most Mazda cars are.
