What makes these vehicles so special? Their mid-engine layout. Each 718 model’s four-cylinder engine is positioned no further than 12-inches behind the driver. As a result, these vehicles have extraordinary dynamic cornering capabilities—thanks to their low and central centers of gravity. The arrangement of the engine’s cylinders helps to reduce oscillations, resulting in a smoother ride and concentrated engine power that’s transmitted directly to the rear axle.
