The exterior of Porsche 718 Boxster S 2017 for once will remind you the traditional Boxster but a closer inspection will bring out some changes. Starting with the front fascia we have a newly designed lower section featuring two wider side air intakes beneath the thin LED daytime running lights. The latter was previously integrated in ducts. The new LED headlights portray eye-like figure while the hood gets a beefier look. It isn’t just the hood getting beefed up but also the side sill add to the aggressive glory with this new look. Moving towards the rear end you’ll notice the standard 19” wheels (optional 20”) fitted beneath the perfectly carved wheel arches. Reaching the rear fascia we have a muscular body. At the end of the deck lid and close to fenders the bulged up LED taillights receive black finishing around. The latter doesn’t end there and further connects the set of taillights and feature ‘Porsche’ lettering in white on them. Thus rounding up the exterior details of Porsche 718 Boxster S 2017 I would say, its muscular, elegant and looks ferocious.
Powering the Porsche 718 Boxster S 2017 is a 2.5 liter four-cylinder Boxer engine generating total output of 350 hp and peak torque of 419 nm paired to six-speed manual transmission as standard while the PDK transmission comes as an option.
