Feng shui? Hygge? All well and good but sometimes less is more and means more time to breathe. Which is precisely why the design of the new 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T is focused on three things: driving, driving, driving. Meaning: excellent ergonomics, short distances between steering wheel and gear lever, and direct access to all the important functions.
So, hands on the GT sports steering wheel! In easy reach: the mode switch, where you can select your preferred driving mode – from Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Individual. The shortened gear lever reinforces the sporty appeal of the interior with its shift pattern in red.
The interior: black and pure. On the steering wheel and gear lever: smooth-finish leather for a comfortable feel. On the doors: understated door pull loops. The trim strips on the dashboard and centre console painted in Black (high-gloss), harmoniously round off the design.
Switch off: yes. Slack off: no. Made possible by the Sports seats Plus (two-way) with elevated side bolsters and seat centres in durable Sport-Tex – or, optionally, the adaptive Sports seats Plus (18-way). Could it get even sportier? Yes – sports bucket seats or ultra-lightweight full bucket seats in carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) are also available as an option. The headrests on all seat variants feature the ‘718’ logo.
With the optional interior packages, you can choose your own colour accents: with contrasting colours in GT Silver, Guards Red, Racing Yellow or Lizard Green. These accents can be found on the seat belts, decorative stitching, door pull loops, the ‘718’ logo on the headrests and on the stitching – as well as the Porsche logo on the floor mats. Highlight: the decorative stitching of the seat centres with Sport-Tex stripe pattern, also in the contrasting colour.
You can even add Alcantara® elements, tried and tested in motorsport, upon request.
