Porsche launches the 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S
New name, new look
Porsche has unveiled the new 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S. The addition of the 718 to the line is an homage to Porsche's race-winning sportscar of the '50's that bore the same number. Just like that iconic car, the new 718 Boxster and Boxster S sport flat-four cylinder engines and these turbo-charged editions not only produce more power but are also more efficient than previous editions.
In terms of design, the focus was on muscularity and sportiness without losing any of the refinement that the series is known for. The front of the car has been given added width, while the back has been redesigned to suit contemporary times, with the Porsche name now emblazoned sharply between the taillights.
Inside, upgrades and additions have been made, including the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) unit that can be customised to suit individual needs and preferences. Elsewhere, high-grade materials like leather ensure that comfort and luxury still remain a priority.
The Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S are open for orders and first deliveries to be expected in May. Prices start from Dhs215,000 for the Boxster and Dhs265,000 for the Boxster S. For more information, visit Porsche Middle East.
