Engine Performance and Top Speed of the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster

As far as high-strength automobiles go, Germany is noted for being one of the top manufacturers of the sort on the entire planet. The vehicles that come out of this nation are well-regarded as being some of the strongest and fastest in their class, which extends through every body style and type out there. If you’re in search of a well-built, durable and speedy convertible, then we want to show you the engine performance and top speed of the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster. Keep reading with McDaniel’s Porsche to see how fast this model can race!

2018 Porsche 718 Boxster performance specs and combined fuel economy

There are two available engines that accompany the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster, both capable of some of the best power ratings this side of the Atlantic. More specifically, this convertible offers either a 2.0-liter Inline 4 (which can handle a maximum output of 300 horsepower) or a 2.5-liter Inline 4 that can produce 365 horsepower. Those are ratings that you simply don’t see in even larger vehicles, much less a compact roadster!

Even so, the 718 Boxster is able to handle itself quite well between visits to the gas station. Its base models can achieve fuel economy ratings of 22 miles per gallon in the city, 29 on the highway, and 24 combined (25 if you opt for an automatic transmission). That’s plenty of capability to keep the good times rolling for as long as you need them to!
