Anyone can follow the straight and narrow. Only the corner is the true test of mettle. Only in the corner does a sports car really become a sports car. So it’s all the more important to have a chassis that can master any sporting challenge. And be a match for the high power output of the engine.
The axle components are for the most part made of aluminium, which keeps the vehicle weight and unsprung masses low. The wide track, long wheelbase and specific chassis construction help to deliver particularly precise and agile handling.
The direct steering system of the 718 models has a perceptibly more immediate ratio than that of the previous models. The results are agile turn-in and an even sportier driving experience – with a customarily high level of comfort.
The comfort-oriented Power steering Plus is available as an option. At high speeds, the steering is as firm as you would expect. At low speeds, the steering ratio adjusts for much easier manoeuvring and parking.

* 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 www.porsche.com/wltp. 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.
