The 2017 Porsche 718 Coming Soon is new, with a sharper design and improved performance. The 718 first debuted in 1953, and continues to be a sporty, sleek entry in to the sports coupe category.
New Design and Tech Features for the 2017 Porsche 718
The 2017 Porsche 718 Coming Soon is made with lightweight construction and a more horizontal design, giving it less wind resistance and increasing its aerodynamic prowess. The 718 Boxster’s mid-engine layout is emphasized by the side profile, and large wheel arches accommodate wheels as large as 20 inches. The 718 also features large air intake grilles on either side of the car, which supplies more air to the engines, cooling them and further improving performance. The 2017 Porsche 718 Coming Soon features a number of driver-assist features, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist, ParkAssist, and a reversing camera. The responsible driver will appreciate optional camera-based speed limit indicator, which uses camera-based technology to inform of speed limits and no-pass zones, allowing even the powerful Boxster to stay within lawful limits. The Porsche Communication Management system (PCM) is operated with a 7-inch multi-touch screen, which can respond to hand movement as well as touch. The 718 also offers wireless internet access, giving your car access to hot spots from WiFi-enabled client devices.
Performance Specs for the 2017 Porsche 718
The 2017 Porsche 718 Coming Soon features two newly-developed engines: a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with direct fuel injection makes 300 horsepower, and, with the Porsche Doppelkupplung, can accelerate from 0 to 60 mp/h in just 4.7 seconds. Buyers can also opt for the 2.5-liter turbocharged horizontally-opposed engine, found in the 718 Boxster S. With 350 horsepower, this superstar engine can hit a top track speed of 177 mph, and can hit 60 in just 4 seconds when properly equipped. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, but it’s the 7-speed PDK that’s the true star, with an option of either manual or automatic mode. Porsche Active Suspension Management, or PASM, continuously adjusts damping force on each wheel, and can be selectable into two modes: a “normal” mode, which blends performance and comfort, or “Sport”, for a firmer, more performance-oriented setup.
