Porsche will equip the extreme 718 718 Boxster and Cayman robot


“Track” 718 sports car family – the Cayman GT4, the Boxster Spyder, Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS 4.0 4.0 – can be ordered with a robotized gearbox PDK double clutch starting from the end of 2020. The decision to include in the range of “Junior” models of the atmospheric “six” robotized transmission was reported by the British magazine Evo.

Since the start of sales of the RWD sports cars “seven hundred vosemnadtsati” line boxer naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine can be purchased only with a six-speed “mechanics”.

On versions of the Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder engine produces 420 horsepower for the Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS 4.0 4.0 – 400 horsepower. Versions with “mechanics” scored the first hundred from standstill in 4.4 seconds and 4.5 seconds respectively. It is expected that the version with “robot” will be 0.2-0.3 seconds faster.


Thus, after stocks limited-edition 911 Speedster in the current Porsche range there will be models that we could not buy in two pedal drive performance. However, no alternative “mechanics” may appear to “track” 911 coupe eighth generation of the line GT3.

It is possible that the emergence of robotic transmission will not be the only improvement for the Porsche 718 with a 4.0-liter “aspirated”. Judging by the tests of prototypes, the German firm is preparing a more “charged” modification, which may be cited as the 718 RS Cayman.
