Porsche created its 718 Boxster models for the sport of it. These mid-engined roadsters combine high-performance capabilities with the legendary Porsche 718 style. Sporty edges and clearly defined contours distinguish the 718 Boxster’s low, wide, and sleek design, creating an athletic aesthetic. Its outstanding performance, exceptional handling, unique interior and exterior features, and generous cabin space make this compact sports car special. Our team at Riverside Porsche put together this guide to the remarkable Porsche 718 Boxster to help buyers make an informed purchase decision.

Overview of the Porsche 718 Boxster

At first glance, shoppers see the 718 Boxster’s sporty side. A second look reveals its striking design. The vehicle boasts an unmistakable silhouette with the flyline typical of a mid-mounted engine and a broad rear with black-accented trim. Slipping inside, drivers and passengers discover a luxurious interior reflecting the 718 Boxster’s sporting spirit.

Trim Levels and Specifications

Porsche offers the 718 Boxster in four stylish trims, each with unique attributes.

718 Boxster

A 2.0-liter turbocharged horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection powers the 718 Boxster base model. This powertrain generates 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, enabling a 4.9-second zero-to-60 mph time and a top speed of 170 mph.

The rear-wheel-drive configuration provides a classic sports car feel. Porsche includes 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, but buyers can upgrade to 19- or 20-inch wheels in various styles. With a base curb weight of 3,020 pounds and a mid-mounted engine, the 718 Boxster handles like a dream.

The 718 Boxster features leather upholstery with unique available color upgrades. Heated sport seats are standard, while ventilated Adaptive Sport Seats and a heated steering wheel are optional. Buyers can also opt for a premium Bose or Burmester audio system. The mid-mount setup allows for 4.4 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk and additional space in the frunk (front trunk).

718 Boxster Style Edition

Porsche equipped the Porsche 718 Boxster Style Edition with the same powertrain. The Style Edition lives up to its moniker with six unique exterior colors, including Ruby Star Nero and Carmine Red. The top comes in black or red with the embossed Boxster logo. Standard 20-inch wheels enhance the sports car’s signature look.

Black or Bordeaux Red leather upholstery is standard. Porsche offers various interior styling options and premium furnishings, allowing buyers to tailor the cabin to their taste.

718 Boxster S

The Porsche 718 Boxster S has a 2.5-liter turbo variant of the horizontally opposed engine. This powertrain produces 350 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque. The S model races from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and boasts a top track speed of 177 mph.

A low, wide stance, soft curves, and chiseled sides give the 718 Boxster S a muscular appearance. Porsche offers more standard features on this model and provides access to additional upgrade packages, making it our choice for customizing.

718 Boxster GTS 4.0

Porsche’s top-tier 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 takes the style of the S trim and adds performance-enhancing features. The 4.0-liter V-6 engine with 394 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque will thrill driving enthusiasts. The GTS 4.0 has a slightly higher curb weight but still rockets from zero to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and tops out on the track at 182 mph.

Drivers love the premium fit and finish inside the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0. Leather-upholstered bolstered sport seats with Race Tex inserts provide luxurious comfort. Contrast stitching is available through the GTS Package, amping up the look.


Despite its pedigree and performance, the Porsche 718 Boxster is surprisingly affordable. The base model has a starting MSRP of $70,400, and buyers can choose from four exterior colors at no charge.

Porsche offers five metallic finishes, including Aventurine Green Metallic and Gentian Blue Metallic, for a mere $650. While many buyers of this model are comfortable with its quality furnishings, various upgrades are available for those wanting to personalize their Boxster.

The 718 Boxster Style Edition offers various unique exterior styling elements at a starting MSRP of $76,700. Distinguishing features of this model include the racing strip on its hood. Choosing a vibrant color option, such as Shark Blue, to complement the standard 20-inch Spyder wheels will create a 718 Boxster Style Edition that’s sure to turn heads.

Buyers opting for the highly customizable 718 Boxster S at an MSRP of $82,400 will get the more powerful 350-horsepower engine. Upgrading this model with the Carmine Red exterior paint and matching top, 20-inch 911 Turbo alloy wheels, and Black and Bordeaux Red Leather Package will still come in at a lower price than the standard top-tier GTS 4.0 variant.

If speed and power are the deciding factors, the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 is the obvious choice. At a starting MSRP of $97,300, buyers won’t quibble with the impressive performance. While many people are typically happy with the standard fit and finish, others may consider a wheel upgrade to make the car their own.
