About the Porsche 718 Boxster

Showcasing the ideal combination of evocative top-down design and mid-engine exhilaration – the Porsche 718 Boxster has captured the hearts of drivers across the globe with its race-inspired chassis and impeccable comfort amenities. Whether you choose a precision-tuned turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, or the naturally-aspirated horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder powerplant, the mid-engine design of the 718 Boxster provides for a balanced center of gravity resulting in remarkably agile handling – performance that is further refined by its lightweight chassis.

When raised, the fabric convertible top of the 718 Boxster makes no compromises to the sleek profile of this legendary sports car. Signature Porsche design cues include eye-catching curves, chiseled wheel arches, and perfected character lines. A driver-oriented interior places you at the center of attention with ergonomic controls thoughtfully placed within arm’s reach. The latest generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) featuring a 7-inch multi-touch screen provides access to key multimedia functions. An extensive list of personalization choices helps you create a Porsche 718 Boxster that reflects a personality as unique as your own.

What’s New for 2024

For 2024, the Porsche 718 Boxster receives a number of key updates. Arriving this year is an all-new 718 Boxster Style Edition variant that adds a variety of unique exterior and interior design cues. Last year’s Boxster T model has been discontinued. At the top of the 718 Boxster range now sits a new Spyder RS trim. These models feature an exhilarating 4.0-liter flat-six that generates 493 horsepower. Finally, a new Ruby Star Neo exterior paint color is now available for the 2024 model year.

What the Critics Say

“The Porsche 718 Boxster is a convertible sports car in the classical sense, which is to say it’s focused primarily on nimble handling and driver enjoyment. We wouldn’t want it any other way. Much of its allure comes from its mid-engine configuration, meaning the engine sits between the seats and rear wheels. This gives the 718 Boxster (and its fixed-roof 718 Cayman sibling) a handling balance prized by car enthusiasts.” – Edmunds

“The Porsche Boxster is an outstanding vehicle. There are two powerful turbocharged engines, both of which get pretty good gas mileage. Handling and ride quality are superb. The two-seat Boxster’s interior is replete with premium materials, and headroom and legroom are plentiful.” – U.S. News & World Report

Porsche 718 Boxster Features

Porsche 718 Boxster Performance


Two proven turbocharged 4-cylinder engines provide the muscle at the entry of the 718 Boxster range. Powering the 718 Boxster and the 718 Boxster T is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder boxer engine delivering 300 horsepower. You’ll be upgraded to a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder boxer engine in the 718 Boxster S that generates 350 horsepower, and can rocket you from 0 to 60 in just 4.4 seconds. True enthusiasts will be drawn to the naturally-aspirated 4.0L boxer 6-cylinder that cranks out either 394 horsepower (in the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0) or 493 horsepower (in the 718 Spyder RS).

Transmission choices include both a responsive 7-speed PDK transmission that features a manual shift mode for lightning-fast gear changes with zero interruption in power delivery and a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual. Providing a fitting soundtrack as you rocket down a twisting canyon road is the signature Porsche exhaust note of the 718 Boxster. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) is an optional system that enhances driving dynamics and stability, helping to bolster confidence behind the wheel.
