2017 Porsche 718 Boxster / 718 Boxster S Unveiled: Zuffenhausen Goes for Four

-Rumors flew for years that Porsche’s Boxster and Cayman would get turbocharged four-cylinder power at some point in the future. And to place the cars in line with the brand’s historic mid-engined, four-cylinder racing machines, Zuffenhausen announced late last year that the new cars henceforth would be known as the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman. And furthermore, that the cars would switch places in the company’s lineup, with the hardtop Cayman anchoring the bottom end of Porsche’s sports-car range, while the convertible Boxster would command a price premium. We now know the price of the Boxster—although not yet its premium, since the figures for the 718 Cayman are not yet out.
