The Porsche 718 Boxster S is a mid-engined compact sports car produced by German automaker Porsche that is part of the fourth-generation Porsche Boxster/Cayman (718).

Description

Released in 2016, the 718 Boxster/Boxster S features two new horizontally opposed flat-4 turbocharged engines at 2.0L (1,988 cc) and 2.5L (2,497 cc) displacement with increased torque and horsepower, higher redline, and lower fuel consumption.

The 2.0L F4 produces 296 hp (221 kW) and 280 ft·lb (380 N·m). With a six-speed manual transmission, 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) occurs in 4.9 seconds along with a top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h). The seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission produces a faster 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds and the PDK Sport Chrono version produces 4.5. The 2.5L F4 produces 345 hp (257 kW) and 310 ft·lb (420 N·m). Paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the 718 Boxster reaches 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h). The top speed is lower for both PDK transmissions, though, with 172 mph (277 km/h). The PDK has a faster 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds, while the PDK Sport Chrono does the same in just 4 seconds.

The 718 Boxster weighs 2944 lb (1335 kg) with a manual and 3010 lb (1365 kg) with the PDK transmission, resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of up to 258 hp per tonne. The Boxster S weighs 2988 lb (1355 kg) with a manual and 3054 lb (1385 kg) with the PDK transmission.

Summary

The Porsche 718 Boxster S was added in the Porsche Update. It is a Championship-unlockable car.

The Porsche 718 Boxster S has a starting rank of 1236, a MAX rank of 1390, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1496 (PRO rank: +106). The car receives +39 from Tuning Kits. Due to having a low increase in the rank when upgraded, the 718 Boxster S has one of the lowest Tuning Kit gains in Class C, only higher than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series (+37) and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (+26).

Performance

The Porsche 718 Boxster S is a nitro-focused car and has a unique nitro efficiency combination of 7/11.5/13.

It can reach its maximum total speed of 243.2 mph (391.5 km/h) in a quick 2.6 seconds. Just like the Porsche Cayman GT4, the 718 Boxster S has a lower total speed than what its rank would otherwise suggest, which poses a large problem on top speed-focused tracks. Due to being nitro-focused, the 718 Boxster S only gains up to 6.2 mph (10.0 km/h) with the top speed maxed out.

The 718 Boxster S has an acceptably decent steering capacity, and while it doesn't have a wide drifting radius, it loses a lot of speed (but not too much) during drifts, again due to its extreme emphasis on nitro, much like the Cayman GT4 and 959.

Usage

Despite being heavily nitro-focused, like the Cayman GT4, the 718 Boxster S suffers the problem of not being competitive enough, as even with an upgrade configuration of 0004 0003 with a rank of C1289 and a total speed of 220 mph (355 km/h), the 718 Boxster S is unable to compete with the BMW M2, Shelby Cobra 427, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, or even the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Similarly, another tune of 0205 0205 gives a rank of C1339 and a total speed of 230 mph (371 km/h), which isn't as competitive as some other similarly-ranked cars.

In terms of Events, the 718 Boxster S isn't recommended either, as there are a huge lack of Events in which the 718 Boxster S can excel at. If pitted against a MAX+PRO Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, the 718 Boxster S only has the advantage in acceleration, while the Evoque has a higher total speed, nitro efficiency, and sharper drifting radius.

As of Hot Wheels Update , the Boxster is now required for career mode, with a Gate Drift event in Season 4, set in Barcelona. The Boxster replaces the delisted Scion FR-S, the car the event originally called for.

Price

According to the game's internal data, the Porsche 718 Boxster S costs A8Tokens 2,000 to purchase. Outside of buying, the only way to obtain the car is through its Championship, with 25 Common Porsche 718 Boxster S BP cards being awarded. Assembly takes 2 hours to complete with a maximum skipping price of A8Tokens 195.

The car costs A8Credits 869,350 or A8Tokens 6,540 to max out. The 718 Boxster S's Pro Kits require A8Credits 537,800, 11 of each Class C Parts card, 20 High-Grade Engines, 10 Initial Tech cards, 10 Early Tech cards, and 8 Mid-Tech cards.

Availability

The Porsche 718 Boxster S was made available in the Garage from July 10, 2017 onwards.
