The 718 Concept

Precise, not fanciful. Self-assured, not restrained. Low, wide and sleek. The exterior design of the 718 models is distinguished by sporty edges and clearly defined formal contours.

What is it that makes the 718 models so special? Their performance, their handling, their design, their generous amount of space with two luggage compartments. But most of all: a mid-engined layout that makes all this possible in the first place.












Design

At first glance: sporty. At second glance: blown away. Striking design: the unmistakable silhouette with the flyline typical of a mid-mounted engine. A broad rear with black accent trim. The cockpit is fully sports-orientated.

Exterior Front

The horizontal geometry of the air intakes makes the front end appear even wider - lending it added bite. On the 718 GTS 4.0 models, this impression is further enhanced by the larger air intakes, black external airblades and black front spoiler. The fenders? Unmistakably Porsche. Higher than the hood, they have been styled to give prominence to the design of the headlights, with impressive inner workings and integrated LED daytime running lights. The 718 GTS 4.0 models have tinted front lights.

Side Air Intakes

The side profile emphasizes the mid-engined layout. The wheel arches are large - for wheels up to 20 inches. In the 718 T models these are in Titanium Grey; in the 718 GTS 4.0 models in Satin Black. One thing is clear: the 718 models weren't built for the garage. They were built for unrestrained driving pleasure. So, naturally the lines on the doors direct the air stream to the large side air intakes. To optimally supply the engines with air and produce powerful thrust.

Exterior Rear

The rear of the 718 models is an expression of maximum sporting performance - and also the top performance of our designers. It is clear, reduced, and anything but conformist. The taillights are flat and also clear in the 718 GTS 4.0 models. Their interior is of a three-dimensional design. Four LED brake lights surround the horizontal taillights. An accent trim between the two taillights makes the rear end look wide.

Interior

Intuitive handling, performance-oriented ergonomics, a clean design. The interior of the 718 models is also fully geared towards sporty performance.












Performance

Transmission

The 718 models are equipped with a smooth 6-speed manual transmission optimally matched to the respective engine characteristics. The gear lever in the 718 T models is shortened for fast, sporty shift throws. The result: short shift times and an even sportier and more authentic driving experience.

The 7-speed PDK with manual and automatic mode is available as an option. For extremely fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power. And all with even better acceleration performance. In manual mode, the shift direction simulates that of race cars - to the rear to shift up, forwards to shift down. For a race track driving experience wherever you are.

Chassis

The optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is an electronic damping control system. The system continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on driving style and current road conditions. The body is also lowered by 10 mm (0.39 in). PASM has two modes, which can be selected using a button on the center console: 'Normal', which is a blend of performance and comfort, and 'Sport', where the setup is much firmer. The results are  tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.  

All 718 models are equipped with enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) - an automatic control system helping to maintain stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. PSM improves traction under acceleration on inconsistent road surfaces. The result is a high level of driving stability - and extraordinary agility at the same time.  

Electromechanical power steering. A direct steering system that lives up to its name. The direct steering ratio ensures agile turn-in and a sporty driving experience - with the usual high level of comfort. The comfort-orientated Power Steering Plus is available as an option.

Sport Button

The Sport button enables you to select a suspension set-up where the emphasis is on either comfort or sporty performance. At the push of a button, the engine dynamics become even more direct. In addition, the Sport Exhaust System is automatically activated. In vehicles with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), upshifts take place at higher engine speeds and downshifts happen sooner.
