2017 Porsche 718 Boxster: This Is It

Gtwqoci2tbcz6inbnw2h

The new Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S get more than just a number attached to their names. The cars are getting new suspension, brakes, styling tweaks, and dropping six-cylinder engines for four.

Outside the 718 still looks like a Boxster to me, but Porsche assures us “every body part except for the luggage compartment lids, the windshield and the convertible top has been changed,” in a press release.

More importantly; the cars will keep their mid-engine, rear-wheel drive powertrain configuration but instead of a flat-six cylinder, both the peasant-spec and fancier Boxster S will run completely new turbocharged flat-four cylinders. The base gets a 2.0 300 horsepower version, the S moves up to a 2.5 and 350 horsepower.

And purists may rejoice: “True to their pure, driver focused character, the 718 Boxster models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission. The Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), which now features fuel-saving virtual gears, is available as an option.”

Ever Ahead. The new 911 Carrera 4 models.

Block2

A distinctive feature of the new 911 Carrera 4 models is the continuous light panel with even more homogeneous illumination than before, which emphasises the 44-mm broader rear end of the all-wheel drive models. The active all-wheel drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM) delivers drive force as required to all 4 wheels.

2016 Porsche 911 Carerra Spy Shots And Video

2016-porsche-911-carrera-facelift-spy-shots--image-via-s-baldauf-sb-medien_100524055_m

The current Porsche 911, the Type 991, made its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and hit the market shortly after as a 2012 model. This means we’re approaching the halfway point in the car’s life cycle, and right on cue prototypes for an updated version, the Type 991.2, have been spotted, this time with virtually zero camouflage gear (there’s only a decal hiding the details of the tail lights). The latest photos show the basic Carrera but prototypes for updated versions of the Carrera CabrioletTargaand Turbo have also been spotted in the past.

The front of the updated 911 is characterized by revised daytime running lights and new intakes in the bumper, possibly with an active grille function to help save fuel. At the rear we can see some new intakes at the sides of the bumper and the exhaust pipes now sit at the center. This is very different to the design used on the existing Carrera models, suggesting some serious updates under the hood as part of this mid-cycle update.

Though it’s yet to be confirmed, Porsche is expected to fit its updated Carrera models with a common turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six. The updated Carrera is expected to come with 370 horsepower on tap, up from the 350-hp rating of the current model’s 3.4-liter mill; and the updated Carrera S should have 420 hp, up from the 400-hp rating of the current model’s 3.8-liter unit.
