According to the information we have got, Porsche is going to reveal a new 2018 model named 718 Boxster GTS, inspired by the Porsche’s famous race car from the 1950s. The new model will belong to the fourth generation of Porsche sports cars and hit the market with some updated features and higher performances.
When it comes to exterior of the new 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS, we can say that this model has undergone some updates, especially in the front fascia. First of all, you will notice a wider lower grille, so the aerodynamics and the cooling will be improved. Also, under the headlamps, we have spotted larger air intakes. All of these front features give the new Boxster more aggressive and unique look. It has also been said that this vehicle will be standing on lighter wheels. In the rear part of the vehicle, the exhaust pipes seem larger and the entire air diffuser has been redesigned. The back spoiler which can be movable gives this model a racing appearance. The taillights will be redesigned and use 3D LED technology. It has as well been announced that the new GTS will be available in several new paint colors.
The experts and Porsche fans would probably say that the cabin of the new 718 Boxster GTS will be largely based on the one seen inside the Boxster S model. The interior will be modern and improved, especially in terms of technology, following the latest trends of the next-generation sports cars. It will get a new dashboard and an upgraded instrument cluster with few displays, including the one for the infotainment system. The A/C vents will also be redesigned. It will get a three-spoke leather steering wheel, leather seats and various forms of entertainment. The standard Porsche Communication Management System will be available, too. Various options such as navigation system, voice commands, phone options and audio control are expected to be included. Safety will be guaranteed by airbags and knee airbags for the driver and passengers as well as the Porsche Side Impact Protection System and roll-over elements and bars.
The information about the powertrain that the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS will be hiding under its hood has not been confirmed yet. It is still being discussed if the new Boxster will keep using its flat-six or a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, it will probably get a new turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four. When such an engine was first used in the 2017 Boxster S, it was able to deliver 350 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque. Now, it has been expected that the new GTS should hit 375-380 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
