    • Porsche 718 Boxster T Hockenheim laptime test

      Remember the 718 Boxster T does not have the larger 2.5 liter 9A2B4 four-cylinder but the base 2.0 liter motor. It is supposed to be a no frills 718 but really it amounts to a car with packaged options at a slight discount. There is not the same focus on weight savings and performance as there is with the Carrera T.


      Still, the Boxster T impresses on the Hockenheim circuit. Sport Auto pushes the car quite hard and ends up with a 1:58.8 laptime.

      A very solid number in context:

      53. Audi R8 V10 Plus (Mk II) unknown 1:52.90 610 / 1635
      54. Porsche 911 GT3 (991) unknown 1:53.90 476 / 1439

        So throw an S on sticky tires and beat this time... Crazy that it's faster than the 997 GT3 RS though. How far we've come.

        Or GTS... exactly. Points well to the chassis capability for sure.
