Porsche Boxster 718 EV Caught With Final Headlights

Optional Requirements: Not Necessary?

We have been presented with another glimpse of the forthcoming all-electric Porsche 718 Boxster that features what appear to be production lighting systems in front and at the back. Moreover, this is also where we spot the distinct wheel style for the first time ever, which appears to be limiting the size of the tires. We suppose that these will likely be installed on the more premier version of the car.

Regarding the headlights, we can easily detect the signature daytime running lights, yet this certain variant seems to have Porsche’s HD Matrix LED lights. This type of headlight made its first appearance as an optional extra for 2023 Cayenne and should probably be included as a selection in the incoming Panamera refresh, also.

We can be certain that they are going to be optional for the 718, as it is the base-level Porsche offering. Powerful headlights will likely run buyers around $1,700 when put on the Cayenne; thus, it would be reasonable to have similar pricing for the 718.

The taillights are still obscured by their plastic wrapping, however it’s pretty clear that they will be slender models, possibly joined together with an LED light bar. After the Taycan was released, Porsche began reducing the size of their headlamps and honestly we aren’t too upset. On the whole, these slim fittings yield a sophisticated and sporty look.

The headlights and taillights may give the impression of being genuine, however, the front and back bumpers are far from ready-for-production. At the front, there appear to be air vents that have been crudely fastened onto the vehicle; these air vents appear familiar due to looking similar to those on the recent 718 model. In the back, a counterfeit exhaust is visible as well as several strange dents and dimples. Although this exterior is liable to be removed in due time to expose something much more attractive, it is highly likely that the central charging port will remain intact. It is hoped, nonetheless, that its construction will be adjusted for a smoother look.

We cannot ascertain whether the US version will contain either a Combined Charging System (CCS) socket or Tesla’s New System of Air Conditioner (NACS).

The 718’s rear-mounted charging interface is suitably situated for topping up at a Tesla Supercharger, although Porsche recently declared the availability of their own ultra-exclusive power outlets.

All in all, the electric version of the 718 looks to be an attractive automobile. It sticks faithfully to the styling philosophy of the Boxster and Cayman, while adding a unique look all its own, bestowed by EV design. Furthermore, Porsche has made sure this model keeps its mid-engine design while offering equal drive performance.

If you aren’t ready to exchange your Boxster for an electrical one or can’t get on board with its otherworldly sound, there’s good news! Porsche has recently implied that the existing combustion 718s will continue to exist in parallel with their electric counterparts, contingent upon the preferences of the current market.

The existing 718 Boxster and Cayman with gas-powered engines might be getting elderly, yet they still remain unbeatable at the peak of their form.

It is hoped that Porsche’s vehicles will remain in service until 2030, with an estimated 80 percent of their models fuelled by electricity and the remaining 20 percent powered by combustion. The renowned 911, however, looks set to be the sole exception, seemingly preserving its signature combustion engine.
