Porsche reveals engine details of new 718 Boxster

Porsche has revealed the engine details of its new 718 Boxster ahead of the sports car’s launch at the Geneva International Motor Show in March.

 

The addition of the 718 badge to the Boxster name for the new-generation car is intended to evoke memories of the mid-engine sports cars that won races for the German manufacturer in the 1950s and 1960s and perhaps ease any angst over the move to a turbocharged flat-four engine.

The 1,988cc unit in the standard model develops 300ps at 6,500rpm and 380Nm from 1,950rpm to 4,500rpm, while the 718 Boxster S manages 350ps and 420Nm at the same speeds from its larger 2,497cc of displacement and VTG turbo.

Bore and stroke on the smaller engine is 91mm x 76mm, while on the larger engine it is 102mm x 76mm. Both engines have a compression ratio of 9.5:1.

Fitted with the optional PDK and Sport Chrono Package, the 718 Boxster sprints from 0-100 km/h (62mph) in 4.7 seconds (0.8 seconds faster than the old model) and the 718 Boxster S with the same equipment does it in 4.2 seconds (0.6 seconds faster). The top speed for each model is 275km/h (171mph) and 285km/h (177mph) respectively.

Porsche claims fuel economy improvements of up to 13% over the outgoing models. In the 718 Boxster, the four-cylinder flat engine with PDK has a NEDC fuel consumption figure of 6.9l/100km (34mpg), which is 1l/100km less than the old car (a 4.2mpg improvement).

In the 718 Boxster S, the 2.5-liter turbo flat engine with PDK consumes just 7.3l/100km (equating to 32.2mpg), which is 0.9l/100km less (a 3.5mpg improvement).

Further details of the new powertrains and pictures will be revealed at the Swiss show on March 3-13, 2016.
