On Saturday 25 March, Porsche Centre Tonbridge hosted a Porsche drive out day to the Poacher and Partridge pub in Tonbridge. Guests were invited to drive the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman around the beautiful Kent countryside to fully understand the performance and handling of both models.
Upon arrival at the stunning country pub, guests were treated to a delicious lunch before driving back to our Porsche Centre. The day was enjoyed by all and the hospitality provided by the Poacher and Partridge was excellent.
Both the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman are equipped with a 2.5-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed engine. This powerful unit delivers 350 hp at 6,500 rpm, with a maximum torque of 420 Nm. With optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Launch Control, the new 718 Boxster S accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 177 mph.
Autocar reviewed the 718 Boxster concluding: "It's hard to understate the importance of the Boxster, not just to Porsche but also to the way it and its peers have shaped the sports car market. The 718 Boxster’s trustworthiness and mid-engined poise transfer well to circuit driving. The car’s ability to deploy its performance has only been magnified by the engineers’ efforts to firm up the fundamentals."
Please contact our Sales Team by calling 01732 361222 for more information on the 718 range or to book a demonstration drive.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
