Porsche 718 Boxster S PDK 2.5 (A) Review
23 Sep 2016  |  Porsche Reviews
This car may have lost two cylinders, but it definitely hasn't lost its confidence as a pure bred Porsche sports car.

Review
Unlike the Macan which uses an Audi 2.0L engine, the 2.0L in the 718 is from same engine block as the 911.
Losing 2 cylinders from its Boxer engine, it sounds rather terrible being a Porsche.
However, power is immense, especially in the 2.5L

Autocar UK claims that their 718 test was faster than an 2010 Audi r8 v10, Aston martin DBS and a f430 Ferrari around nurburgring!!

I did not buy this car after the test drive.

What I like
-the power of the car- supercar level with under 4.2 seconds 0-100 sprint

-handling is perfect, even better than my 911.

What I do not like
-sounds terrible compared to the older version, lost the 6 cylinder goodness and soul. sounds pretty much like a Subaru STI

-design did not change from previous cayman/boxster models

-very high options costs

-simple interior with not many tech gadgets
