#3 It's the usual story: more performance, more efficiency - and 10% more expensive, of course

#4 But the truth is that the new Boxster has lost its most compelling feature.

Would that be the flat 6 howl? I'd miss that too.

Thanks for the post.

Your guess is as good as mine. That's an area code for telephone calls in NYC.

The Porsche 718 from 1957 also had a 4 cylinder boxer engine.

Why not 550 then? Too famous?

Also, they both have four wheels. I still fail to see the connection.

One is a bare bones, minimalist race car. The other - slightly overweight lifestyle car.

The 550 is associated with James Dean right?

That's approaching the problem with calling the new M version of the 1 series the M1, except the 550 is way more famous than that.

I'm sure it was suggested, and those opposed to the idea were too embarassed by it so argued that it was too famous a name, so compromised and went with 718. So they ended up with a name that no one likes, and kept the old names tacked on the end to make sure that people know that they're actually just the new versions of those cars.

Or, someone thought that 718 would evoke the 918, because branding and marketeering again.

The new name only makes sense to the boffins at Weissach.

It sad to lose the flat six.

I'd still have one though.

That sounds about right.

Also, Sniff Petrol has a spot on explanation about the 718 marketeering: Porsche reveals details of entry-level defensiveness Sniff Petrol

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster T - Images, Specifications and Information

With the 718 T, Porsche has transferred the puristic design of the 1968 911 T to its range of two-seater sports cars. The new model in the Boxster and Cayman ranges combines the 220 kW (300 PS) turbo four-cylinder flat engine with a particularly emotional Porsche driving experience. The high-performance character of the T models is emphasised by an extensive equipment package, which includes 20-inch alloy wheels, the PASM sports chassis lowered by 20 millimetres - which is being offered in combination with the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine for the first time in this range - the shortened gearshift, on which the gears are emblazoned in red, and the Sport Chrono package. These features can only be enjoyed in combination with the basic engine in the 718 T. Porsche is offering both the Boxster and Cayman variants with six-speed gearbox and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), including mechanical rear axle differential locking. Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) is also available as an option.

Traditionally, "T" stands for "Touring" in Porsche models, and is synonymous with driving pleasure in its purest form. The 718 T will be most at home on winding country roads, offering the joy of dynamic driving as its ultimate goal. The two-seater accommodates this philosophy through a pared down range of features. These include black door pulls in the door panels and sports seats with electric two-way adjustment, black Sport-Tex centre sections and the "718" logo embroidered on the headrests.
