Porsche Exclusive applies is touches to the Porsche 718 Boxster Cayman
Porsche recently updated the engines of the Boxster and Cayman lines to a newly-developed line of flat-four cylinder engines. To celebrate the occasion, Porsche added ‘718’ to the Boxster and Cayman name plate in honor of the legendary Porsche 718 racecar that shared a mid-engine layout and flat-four cylinder engine. The 718 wreaked havoc on racetracks throughout Europe in the late 1950s and early 60s.
While there are subtle design changes, the highlight is undoubtedly the new flat-four cylinder engine. In stock configuration, the 718 Boxster / Cayman has a 2.0-liter engine producing 295 horsepower while the ‘S-enhanced’ models have the 2.5-liter engine producing 345 horsepower.
To celebrate the occasions, Porsche Exclusive, the automaker’s specialized division for adding personalized touches to selected models – added interior and exterior enhancements to make a special car even more spectacular.
The Silver 718 Cayman has a gray interior with brushed silver trim. The GT sports steering wheel is wrapped in Alcantara.
Moving to the exterior, the 718 Cayman received a SportDesign package, a sports exhaust system, 20-Carrera Sport wheels and a painted model designation badges on the side and rear of the vehicle.
The Yellow 718 Boxster received all of the same treatments as its closed top counterpart.
Modifications were made to the interior and exterior of the vehicles only. The power train was left intact.
