Physics tells us that of all vehicle configurations, the mid-engine sports car offers optimal conditions for the best driving dynamics. Now, with the 718 Boxster, Porsche is proving the practical benefits of this theoretical approach more convincingly than ever. In its driving dynamics, the new roadsters follow in the tracks of the original classic 718, which won its races with extraordinary manoeuvrability. The completely new chassis tuning once again improves cornering performance of the mid-engine sports cars. For an optimally equipped 718 Boxster S, Porsche is expecting lap times on the North Loop of the Nürburgring that are 16 seconds faster than those of the previous model. This puts the vehicle on the same level as a Boxster Spyder and nearly on that of a Cayman GT4.
