2018 Porsche 718 Boxster Convertible for Sale
Porsche's entry-level convertible sports car has received a thorough redo last year that included a new name: the 718 Boxster. Porsche added the 718 designation to the name as an homage to the company's 718 race cars of the late 1950s. The biggest change was the switch to turbocharged flat-four engines, which provide more power and fuel efficiency than the six-cylinder engines they replace.
The interior offers plenty of room for 6-footers, though over-the-shoulder visibility isn't very good. All the more reason to drop the power-operated top, which folds down in just over 10 seconds. Two small trunks offer adequate luggage space, though golf clubs will be relegated to the passenger seat.
The 718 Boxster comes with a midmounted 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. Porsche claims zero-to-60-mph acceleration of 4.9 seconds. The EPA rates the 2.0-liter Boxster's fuel economy at 25 mpg combined (22 city/29 highway) for the seven-speed, dual-clutch PDK automatic; the manual transmission returns 1 mpg lower.
Opt for the Boxster S, and the engine is bumped up to 2.5 liters with 350 hp. Porsche claims a zero-to-60-mph run at 4.4 seconds for the manual and 4 seconds flat for cars with PDK and the Sport Chrono package. Top speed is 177 mph, and the Boxster S is EPA rated at 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway) with the PDK automatic. Manuals trail those figures by about 2 mpg.
While we miss the previous Boxster's six-cylinder soundtrack, the handling remains sharper than ever. The balance of the chassis will satisfy novice and expert drivers alike, while the sticky tires and accurate steering ensure confidence. The Boxster S offers an optional Porsche Active Suspension Management, with a lowered ride height and upgraded dampers, but we think the ride is too stiff on roads that aren't glass smooth. The standard suspension rides better on less than perfect pavement and still offers outstanding levels of grip.
The Boxster is offered in base and S models, differentiated primarily by their engine. Both models now include more standard equipment, and in keeping with Porsche tradition there are enough extra-cost options to literally double the price of the car. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2018 Porsche Boxster for you.
