Los Angeles Shoppers Can Satisfy Their Need For Speed With the All-new Porsche 718 Boxster

February 24th, 2016 by

Twenty years after the first Porsche Boxster made its debut, Porsche Riverside is pleased to announce the latest generation of its mid-engine roadsters: the new 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S. Both models pay homage to the flat four-cylinder engines that were used in the mid-engine Porsche 718 sports car that won numerous races in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The new 718 Boxster models feature newly developed, turbocharged flat four-cylinder engines. The Porsche 718 Boxster has the ability to generate 300 horsepower, while the Porsche 718 Boxster S offers Los Angeles Porsche shoppers even more power, at 350 horsepower. These newly developed engines provide 35 more horsepower than previous Boxster models, and are more efficient than their predecessors.

The 718 Boxster models, soon to be available at our Porsche dealer in Los Angeles, feature a new design that emphasizes their sharpened profiles; both vehicles are instantly recognizable. The front ends of each vehicle have been resculpted to have a wider, more muscular appearance. The redesigned rear fascia places greater emphasis on width, due to the strip featuring an integrated Porsche badged located between the taillights.
