Porsche considers releasing electric 718 in 2024
Porsche wanted to decide by this summer whether the next generation of the 718 series (Cayman and Boxster) would have an all-electric drive. According to media reports, the decision has now been made in favour of a purely electric 718 in 2024. However, official confirmation is still pending.
Porsche to decide on electric Boxster by Summer 2021
Porsche has not yet decided whether the next generation of the 718 series (Cayman and Boxster) will have a fully-electric drive. Actually, the decision should have been made in 2020. However, it is clear that there will be a new generation of smaller sports cars.
Porsche’s batteries are too heavy for the 718
The electric versions of the Porsche 718 series, Cayman and Boxster, have still not been given the green light for production, according to Michael Steiner, Executive Vice President for Development. The Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer is therefore continuing to postpone the decision.
Porsche 718, Cayenne & Panamera may go electric
Within the next twelve months, Porsche intends to make a final decision as to whether the next generation of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman will be solely manufactured as an electric series. This was stated by Porsche boss Oliver Blume in an interview.
