About the 718

The Porsche 718 is a nameplate given to the fourth generation of the Porsche Boxster and Cayman models that have been in production since 2016. During this time, there has only been one generation in this new nameplate range.

According to Porsche, the number ‘718’ stands for winning, excellence, and performance as an ode to the iconic Porsche 718 race car that won the Targa Florio in 1959 and 1960.

It was also given the internal designation as Porsche 982.

Both models are offered only as 2-door fastback coupes or roadsters with a mid-engine and rear-wheel drivetrain.

Naturally, customers often compared the Cayman and Boxster in this series to one another. Other comparable models include the BMW M2 and Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S, among other high-performance luxury coupes and roadsters.

Trim levels offered by Porsche consist of the base model, followed by the T, S, GTS 4.0. The Cayman does have an additional GT4 and GT4 RS variants, while the Boxtser has the 25 Years special edition.

There are also several additional trims found exclusively in race models.

Engine options for these various trims range from the smallest 2-liter inline-4 up to the 2.5-liter inline-4 found in the high-performance trim levels. Both of these smaller engines are turbocharged.

Porsche later released the 4-liter naturally aspirated flat-six found in other RS models.

Interestingly, the 718 series represents a significant change for Porsche as it represents the change from six-cylinder engines to only four cylinders for the main trim levels.

Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, as well as a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that was introduced in 2020.
