Precise, not fanciful. Self-assured, not restrained. Low, wide and sleek. The exterior design of the 718 is distinguished by sporty edges and clearly defined formal contours.
The horizontal geometry of the air intakes makes the front end appear even wider – and lends it added bite. The wings? Unmistakably
The side profile emphasises the midengine layout. The wheel arches are large, designed for wheels up to 20 inches in size. One thing is clear: the 718 models were not intended for the shelter of the garage, but for the pleasure of driving. That’s precisely why the contouring on the doors purposefully directs headwind into the large air intakes on either side of the car. This provides the optimum supply of air to the turbocharged engines, a basis for their powerful forward thrust.
Another sporty detail: exterior mirrors with v-shaped mirror base.
When closed, the fabric hood of the 718
The rear of the 718 is an expression of superlative sporty performance – and of the superlative performance of our designers. It is more cleanly defined, more pared back.
And yet it’s anything but conformist. The taillights are slimline, their inner workings fashioned three-dimensionally. Four LED brake spot lights are incorporated into each of the horizontal rear driving lights. Between the two taillights, an accent trim makes the rear end look even wider.
The wing above extends automatically at a speed of 77 mph, reducing lift to provide even better roadholding performance.

* 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.
