What’s New on the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster Convertible
Pure pleasure remains the number one reason to buy the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster Convertible. Nimble and speedy, drivers love it. Comfortable and breezy, everyone enjoys the journey. As a two-seater, this car wears its style without apology to the unoriginal rides on the road. The 718 Boxster’s mid-body engine placement gives it a perfect weight balance to go with its lightweight build. These factors allow 718 Boxster drivers to make the most of the turbo four’s 300 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Enthusiasts will enjoy the manual transmission. A power-folding soft top can lower itself as the car leaves your driveway. You can also personalize the exterior with a special body paint and/or a colorful soft top. Available turn-adapting headlights move with the wheels, lighting the car’s actual trajectory. Adding to the carefree feeling of piloting this fast craft, Porsche offers safety features that can keep electronic eyes on the traffic ahead, watch the lane lines, and spot a car entering the driver’s blind zone.
Richly furnished with amenities and technology, the cabin has the craftsmanship and quality you have come to expect from Porsche. Sport seats hug the body during curves. Both positions enjoy ample legroom and headroom, even with the top up. Packages give you many different colors, types of leather, and types of wood to decorate your interior. You can opt for the soft touch of simulated suede, pick from a variety of accent stitches, and dress dash fixtures with a bright aluminum. Most drivers want heated and ventilated seats. An easy-to-use touchscreen sits amid well-labeled and easily accessed tactile buttons for a myriad of purposes, including keyless ignition. Porsche has made Apple CarPlay available this year. You can also use Porche Connect if you want a mobile WiFi hotspot. For music lovers, there is a 10-speaker Bose audio system as well as an available 12-speaker Burmester audio system.
