In the year 2022, the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman are known to everyone. With its 350-horsepower turbocharged engine, this car is a complete package, and with its passion for handling at high speeds, it is very popular among all of us. Porsche’s CEO stated in his speech at the recent official meeting that the next version of this magnificent Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman would be powered entirely by electric power; which would be a good thing because, in the future, it will be possible to use all-electric power.
Moreover, the officials have also confirmed that the upcoming electric model will use a new platform developed specifically for two-door sports cars of this type, as well as a design inspiration borrowed from last year’s track-only Mission R concept that we were given a chance to drive.
Uniqueness of 2025 Porsche 718 Boxster/ Cayman
It has been confirmed by the Porsche CEO that the Boxster and Cayman models of the 2022 Porsche 718 will be upgraded to electric power as part of the General Motors Electric Vehicle Initiative. This new beautiful sports car will join the Porsche Taycan and the new generation Macan which are in the development stage as a part of the electric sports car family, thus adding a new dimension to the Porsche sports car family.
Considering the design of the Mission R concept on the new 718 Porsche Boxter and Cayman, the standard layout of the vehicle will look a lot like the layout of a mid-engine sports car, with the batteries being the heaviest element of the vehicle, just ahead of the rear axle, which is usually where the engine is located.
There is a possibility that Porsche will be developing this new 2025 model on a new innovative sports car platform that is to be much more than just a simplified version of the current model. Electronics and invisible components will be able to benefit from economies of scale, but there will still be a lot of components that remain unique and related to dynamics.
- There is no doubt that there are a lot of technical specifics involved in the conversion of the new 718 into an electric sports car, but ultimately whether it will be worth the effort and expense ultimately comes down to the bottom line.
- It is clear that Porsche’s decision to turn the next Boxster and Cayman into electric-only models will likely prove highly profitable, particularly if government legislation continues to squeeze combustion engines in the future.
- The shrinking market for traditional sports cars and the growing popularity of high-power electric vehicles suggest that Porsche’s investment could be well worth it.
- Porsche will also have the opportunity to continue the internal combustion engine in the 911, which may be combined with a hybrid option – especially if synthetic fuels continue to receive investment and development – allowing the company to keep its fleet average of CO2 down even when EV sales are under pressure.
Designs for upcoming 2025 Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman
The Mission R concept car, which was unveiled at the Munich Motor Show, is the first glimpse we have had of the new 718’s design. It cannot be denied that the Mission R starts to show some of the characteristics that could be found in a production 718 Cayman, even when stripped of its wild aero, and scaled back in its aggressive demeanor.
Interior Designs of 2025 Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman
Our knowledge of interior design is still limited at this time, but we can assume that this will be the most futuristic interior design the brand has ever produced, offering a more forward-looking approach than the Taycan, as well as being a huge leap from the conservatively styled current 718 cockpits.
With regards to the design of the user interface, Porsche is keeping the needs of the customer base in mind: in China, the largest market for the 718, the average age of the 718 buyers is just 31 years old. A Porsche 718 in 2025 is also expected to have a very futuristic interior, being one of the most modern and futuristic cabins in the automotive industry.
Even though neither the Boxster nor the Cayman offers a true storage area, they do at least come with a large cargo compartment that can be accessed from the front and rear. The back of the vehicle can accommodate one carry-on suitcase and the trunk can accommodate two. Maybe the designer of the vehicle has removed the side air vents in order to conserve space since an electric vehicle does not require the same amount of ventilation as an engine-driven vehicle with internal combustion.
Exterior Designs of 2025 Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman
In accordance with the hints that have been given by the officials, there is a high probability that the Boxster will retain its fabric top rather than be given a fixed-roof option. Porsche’s new electric front design will feature wider headlights, just like Porsche’s design for the Taycan, which is based on the company’s new electric front design for the new car. The body style will remain relatively close to the current model.
A project has also been started by the group with the aim of developing a unified design for battery cells, which should be able to be used for almost all the electric vehicles it manufactures. The fact that this would still leave room for cars to use the mid-engined layout of the potential new platform in the future, which might be required in order to fit a battery design that is different from the traditional design currently being used by the current battery.
Moreover, the Mission R concept has been designed to ensure a more even distribution of weight and balance. This is due to the fact that both of the electric motors installed on the rear axle of the vehicle will be biased towards rear-drive power. In contrast to the Mission R concept which is based on an entirely new production platform that has been specially designed for it.
Average expected weight of 2025 Porsche 718 Boxter / Cayman
Porsche’s new 718 Boxter and Cayman of 2025 are likely to be extremely heavy; after all, a Taycan, despite its not-so-spacious package, weighs in at 4568 pounds for its entry-level model with a small battery, and 5199 pounds for its Turbo S Cross Turismo model, so it is expected to be excessively heavy. Unlike the 718, it will be almost a miracle of lightweight technology: the goal is to achieve a weight under 3600 pounds as the target weight for the car.
Engine and power of 2025 Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman
It had already been revealed that Porsche would be releasing a new version of the 918 Boxster and Cayman in the near future. With a 429 hp front motor and 626 hp rear motor setup, this magnificent yet powerful sports car is expected to produce a horsepower of 1,073 hp in qualifying trim, and 626 hp in race trim. However, when production begins in late 2024, it will be possible to find a less powerful, single-motor, rear-wheel-drive 718 to accompany the first-ever all-wheel-drive 718 models.
Moreover, the officials have assured us that the top-end versions of the car will go well beyond the limits of the 911. Porsche is unconcerned about overlap because there are fundamental differences between the technologies used in the gasoline-powered 911 and the electric 718, which Porsche believes are fundamentally different technologies.
The Porsche 911 will remain the same as it is since Porsche is not considering modifying the vehicle into an electric vehicle in the future, as the company does not intend to do so.
