Duel of generations: Porsche 718 Boxster S vs Boxster S 981
Porsche brought important developments in the new generation of the Boxster. A change of philosophy in its thrusters well deserves also a change in their denomination. That’s why the Boxster became 718 Boxster as soon as it arrived the downsizing: smaller engines, less cylinders, more powerful and efficient.
Now the guys from Motorsport Magazine have not hesitated to show us a video in which face to both generations of the Boxter S in a duel of acceleration up to 250 km/h.
Both sports are very different especially in its interior: The classic Boxster S 981 has an engine of six cylinders while on the other hand we have the 718 Boxster with a new block of four cylinders with turbo of higher power. Let’s look at their technical differences:
