The new Porsche 718 Boxster comes almost as equally equipped as the 911. Having gone full turbocharge on the 911, Porsche is convinced that that is the way forward. The Boxster comes with a new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that replaces the previous flat-6. What was once a trademark symphony will now sound something close to a turbocharged Subaru Impreza.

The standard and S versions are still available for buyers. A new flat-4 engine powers both. The base trim features a single turbo, 2.0-liter that generates 296 bhp. The S version carries a single turbo 2.5-liter that makes 345 bhp. The former gets from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds while the latter, in just 4.2 seconds.

This year, there’s an additional GTS trim to the Cayman and 718 Boxster models. Both raise the Porsche performance-bar higher. The base models make about 280 pound-feet of torque and 300 horsepower. It allows them to hit the 60 mph mark in 4.9 seconds. The S versions add to the output, making 309 pound-feet of torque and 350 horsepower that gets them from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

The GTS variant is the speed monster. It churns 317 pound-feet of torque and 365 horsepower. Getting from 0 to 60 mph takes less than 4 seconds. The GTS and S versions have an option for more speed. This is delivered through geometry turbos that run faster and produce more power.

There are two transmissions available for consumers: a standard 6-speed-manual or an optional 7-speed automatic. Porsche refers to the latter as the Porsche Doppelkupplung automatic or PDK in short. The 6-speed-manual is a work of art. The short shifter and solid clutch work hand-in-hand to deliver remarkable performance. The 7-speed doesn’t make the Boxster any less fun to drive. When in sync with the Sport Chrono, the virtual gears work well to maintain fuel economy.

The GTS comes with adaptive dampers as standard. The system comprises three modes: Normal, Sport and Sport Plus. They are firm, predictable and deliver well enough for the driver to feel the change. The Sport Plus is ideal for the track.

For the base models, front and back tires feature 235/35-ZR Pirelli P Zeros and 265/45-ZR Pirelli P Zeros respectively. The S variants ride on 235/40-ZR19s and 265/40-ZR19 Pirelli P Zeros. The braking system has a responsive and superb pedal with the brakes being thicker and more prominent than before. The electric-powered steering wheel is precise, light and tells all that the driver needs to know about what’s going on under.

The additional GTS looks menacing. It’s 10 millimeters lower than its base siblings and features 20-inch wheels as standard. The 718 interiors are wrapped with quality materials with consumers getting an optional leather upholstery. There are plenty of switches for controlling almost everything, including performance.

With the 718 Boxster and Cayman models, Porsche continues to live up to its name. The turbocharged engines are quick to deliver. They are only a few millimeters away from perfect. For most cool features, however, buyers will have to part with something extra.
