What type of headlights would you guys like to see the 718 come with?

I always liked the quad LED headlights as seen on the new Macan on the new 718, not many people like them, but I sure do. Here's a picture of them:

I don't think that we are going to get the quad headlights for the 718. i think they are going to give us something that is closer to the headlights on the Cayman and Boxster.

I don't know, its plausible we get the technology from the MAcan in a similarly styled package to Cayman... ITs really not all that costly regardless. However keep in mind an LED setup would be optional not standard...

It would be a good thing to include as an option on the 718, but I doubt it would be standard. We haven't seen these lights on anything other than a CUV, so I am also wondering if they would look awkward at all on the little 718.

not true, the 911 uses a similar setup, simply dual, not quad, of course the housing is much smaller...

They do look cool in the the 911, but its not quite the same effect as the Macan. I wouldn't be opposed to them being in the 718, but I still don't think it is going to happen. I wouldn't bet on it.

Since the 718 is going to be an entry-level model that sits below the Boxster it's possible it may not get headlights as nice as what all the other porsche models come with.
wouldn't be totally surprised to see that happen.

So you think it might be something that haven't even seen before?
No, something we haven't seen before would be beyond the current headlight tech they have on any of their vehicles, and that's not something likely to happen to the 718. If anything it has a chance of getting a headlight setup that's not as high tech as what they currently offer, something cheaper, that of course would be something we have seen before.

Sharks got it right, theres going to be a trickle down. The only thing that will be exclusive to the 718 will be the 4 pot boxers...

I don't think we should expect anything too exciting from the 718 headlights. They will be pretty standard and in line with the headlights on other Porsches. That keeps with they styling of the classic 718's headlights too, so it is being true to the 718's history.

Even i can't say if i'm right or even wrong, just what I think could happen. Still, I can see how they can justify coming out with an LED headlight setup for it as a standard feature.

Well point being they're not. They already have LED setups on the rest of their models so why re invent the wheel....
