New Porsche 718

A replacement for the Porsche 718 is coming next year, and this is expected to include increased output from the V6 engine.

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. The Porsche 718 will be produced with limited numbers to maintain preserver exclusivity as expected. Looking to sell your Porche enter your reg at www.trustedcarbuyers.com for a great deal today.
