A bit more power and style.
One of the four sports cars that MTM – Motoren Technik Mayer took to the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show was the new Porsche 718 Boxster S. While many aftermarket brands are focusing on the twin-turbocharged engines of its 911 sibling, MTM took advantage of the new force-fed powerplant in the 718 Boxster S..
Casting aside the naturally-aspirated flat-six engine in the previous generation Boxster is the new turbocharged 2.0- and 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-fours in the 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S, respectively. The new force-fed nature allows for greater levels of power to be achieved with relatively simple upgrades.
MTM engineers gave the 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four in the 718 Boxster S some fresh life with a new MTM M-Cantronic tuning module, downpipe with metal catalytic converter, and rear muffler with dual valves.
Thanks to the new upgrades, the new MTM-tuned Porsche 718 Boxster S produces 402 horsepower at 6,500 RPM and 361 lb-ft. of torque at a low 2,800 PRM. That’s good for a 3.8-second 0-62 mph acceleration time and 13.5-second 0-124 mph time. Top speed is all the way back at an impressive 185 mph.
Sitting in front of the carbon ceramic brakes on the MTM Porsche 718 Boxster S are new MTM Bitmoto wheels. These lightweight forged alloys keep rotating mass to a minimum and measure 20 x 9.0 up front and 20 x 11.0 at the rear with 245/35 ZR20 and 295/30 ZR20 Michelin Pilot Sport tires at the rear.
The full upgrade program including the base price of the Porsche 718 Boxster S is 68,900 euros from MTM. The engine upgrades are priced at 8,450 euros while the wheels are available for 4,850 euros.
