718 Boxster S VS Cayman GT4 On Ignition

Fans were unenthused when Porsche first introduced the new 718 Boxster/Cayman powered by turbocharged flat-fours, but even critics canít deny just how fast the new Boxster is.

The one driven by Carlos Lago in the latest episode of Ignition was a the Boxster S with a turbocharged 2.5 litre engine, delivering 350 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque from lower revs. Thatís enough to have the Boxster S sprinting from zero to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds and its top speed of 177 mph can quickly tear through the race track.

Paired with a seven-speed PDK transmission, the Boxster S has a broader power band compared to its predecessor and itíll provide ample power no matter which gear youíre in. Another bonus for track orientated drivers is just how tight the gear spacing is, so you never have to second guess which gear the carís in even if youíre shifting manually.

Power isnít everything and Porsche is aware of this, thatís why the Boxsterís balance was designed to be both neutral and playful. Thereís a little bit of trailing throttle oversteer right when you want it going into a corner.

Itís so much fun to drive that lap times become a secondary concern, but for those who are interested, the 718 Boxster S came in 2/10ths behind the 2016 Cayman GT4.
