There is not an easier way to say this but the new Porsche 718 Boxter has a smaller four cylinder engine and has turbo chargers in them. This might scare people off the brand but there is more to it though. Sometimes, companies like these take major decisions not to ruin the brand value to progress and somehow down the lane, they make it work very well for them. The Boxter S version puts 350hp and 420Nm of torque letting this car hit 100kmph in 4.4 seconds and a 177mph top speed which is respectable despite the size of the engine.
There is retuned suspension and some tweaks to the car that makes it stiffer than before. Without a doubt, the Porsche 718 Boxter is faster and better than before and the chassis is just more alive with the increase in torque. The throttle response is crisp and without any turbo lag while the road holding of this car as it has been in the past is wonderfully eloquent. Gone is the six cylinders howling engine that used to get more delectable as the revs climbed but the car has still improved to a step above the previous car minus the engine.
This means that the personality of the car has changed quite a bit from being delicate to being a thug. The car is brilliant in the corners as Porsche has done some engineering for decades with this chassis. It handles excellently well and goes flat through the corners without anybody roll. With slip differential, this car is a lot of fun, accurate and predictable making it an amazing handler with a much more economic engine and increased power.
