250 HP for the Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman less powerful, only for China

The new family ‘718’ Porsche is already on sale throughout Europe and in many other markets: both models -718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, roadster a convertible or a coupe, respectively – were not exempt from a certain amount of controversy, after saying goodbye to the traditional six-cylinder to resort to the inevitable ‘downsizing’.

Less cubicaje and two cylinders less, also lower consumption and pollutant emissions, but without detracting from the performance: this is the intention of Porsche, which used as input to a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder in the new Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman.

In both models, this 2.0-liter turbo reaches 300 HP, offered with 350 HP in the ‘S’ versions through a 2.5-liter engine, also of four cylinders. In China will be a little different: Porsche will offer a model of access less powerful, with 250 HP, specific for the asian country. This will seek to increase their sales.

In essence, it will be the same engine ‘deflated’ in power through the electronic. Porsche 718 with 250 HP will have a price of less than 600,000 yuan, some 80,000 euros at the exchange, which is a psychological barrier for many chinese customers. The forecasts of sales of both models will trigger at to 4,500 units in China during the 2017, almost double the sold in 2015 (2,500 units).

The Porsche 718 Cayman will start its marketing in China in December of 2016. As is apparent in the light of these numbers, Cayman and Boxster are not particularly popular in China, a market where to send the sedan and the large SUV while the sports have sales very reduced: there are sold 16 units of the Porsche Cayenne by each of the Porsche 911.

Spain have already supported orders for the new Porsche 718 Cayman, with prices that depart from the 58.148 euros. Here will not be sold with less than 300 HP, but in the future it will come versions more sports and powerful, around 400 HP. As a curiosity, the previous generation Porsche Boxster was launched from the 211 BHP in Belgium, although it was another exception is very particular due to the tax rates of the country.
