If you seek for the real pleasure of driving, all you have to do is to get on the new Porsche Boxster 718 that is now part of the Up Cars car fleet.
Thanks also to a new four cylinder-boxer turbo engine placed in the centre, the new German roadster offers exquisite driving qualities.
What makes the new 718 so special? Performance, driving outcome, design, a lot of room and a central engine certainly do.
The engine is placed less than 30 centimetres behind the driver and this produces amazing results such as a push well perceivable on the driver’s back and exceptional dynamism around bends thanks to the low centre of gravity. The boxer disposition of the cylinders ensures also a reduction of oscillations thus the engine can function more homogeneously. An extra benefit in terms of driving is that the pressurised strength of the engine is directly transmitted to the back axle.
The new 718 models are made for pure sportive pleasure. These are vehicles that combine the sportive spirit of the legendary Porsche 718 with tomorrow’s sportive cars in order to reach the goal of eliminating routines from everyday life. The design is, of course, brand new and more aggressive that previous models’ with a more sportive structure and a series of new assistance devices able to improve performance and comfort at the same time. Naturally, we are talking about a vehicle with a great power (350HP, 257 kW) with a turbo supercharging system and a clear reduction in emissions. The Boxter does not give up the traditional canvas roof that can be easily opened and closed electronically even when the car is moving up to 50 km/h. This roadster can thus be considered as a very quiet coupé.
This vehicle is available for rent on Up Cars in white with black interiors.
As soon as the central engine is started, however, the only thing that matters are the many bends waiting for you.
