Porsche Boster 718 AID Newsletter Journal road test


Since this summer Porsche’s junior sports car range, still sharing much of its structure and underpinnings with the legendary 911, has presented itself in Europe with a new appearance, all-new, high-torque 4-cylinder Boxer engine with lower fuel consumption and, for the first time, with a new name: the 718 Boxster/Cayman

A restyled Boxster/Cayman, the slightly smaller same DNA brothers of the mighty 911 range, just hit European dealerships with both a new name and a new engine. 

Named 718 Boxster/Cayman, and now powered exclusively by a new 4-cylinder version of the company’s much-admired 6-cylinder boxer engine, just went on sale with turbo enhanced power ranging from 300PS to 350PS from either 2.0 or 2.5 litre capacity. 

German prices of the base 300PS 718 Cayman Coupé now start at €51,623, followed by a €53,646 asking price for the same base new 718 Boxster cabriolet. 

The all too predictable bigger muscle 350PS ‘S’ version of the new 718 Boxster is priced at €66,141.
