Okay, pink is a choice that might not suit your personal sense of style, even if it does look flaming hot. So, Porsche’s latest 718 Style Edition can be ordered in colours other than the gorgeous Ruby Start Neo. And you’ll get high-gloss black 20″ Spyder wheels with Porsche crests on the hub covers, black sport tailpipes and high gloss silver Porsche lettering to ensure you stand out from the crowd.
If you choose the Boxster Style Edition, you won’t forget what it’s called with the exclusive soft-top labelling.
Yep, this is the Style Edition so it’s all about unique design touches that make your pretty little beast perfect. Choose either a black or white contrast package that delivers decorative stripes on the luggage compartment lid at the front and “Porsche” decorative lettering on the side, as well as black and white high-gloss paint finishes for the wheels and model designations at the rear, respectively.
Inside, the Style Edition models feature a leather package in black including contrast stitching in Crayon, illuminated door sill panels in stainless steel and the Porsche Crest on the headrests.
Both Style Edition models use the same powertrain and chassis. Both are based on the entry-level versions of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman with the 220 kW (300 PS*) two-litre boxer engine behind the seats. The turbocharged four-cylinder generates 380 Newton meters of torque and takes the Style Edition models, which are manually shifted through six gears as standard, from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds (with optional seven-speed PDK: 4.9 seconds). Regardless of the selected transmission, both models reach a top speed of 275 km/h on the track.
In Australia, the new Porsche 718 Style Edition models also come standard with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), a 64-litre fuel tank, Tyre sealant and electric air compressor, Lane Change Assist, Porsche Entry & Drive, Alarm system with interior surveillance, 14-way Sports seats with memory package, Light Design Package, Porsche Connect with Navigation and Digital radio. Furthermore, the Power steering Plus feature is a no-cost option. The new Porsche 718 Style Edition models are available for order now and start at $125,800 for the Cayman version and $128,600 for the Boxster version – plus on-road costs.
Australian deliveries are expected to commence from the second half of 2023.
