Porsche will stop producing the 718 Cayman and Boxster with ICE from 2025

Demand for EVs is currently not meeting manufacturers’ expectations, and some have already changed their plans by postponing the discontinuation of models with internal combustion engines. Porsche is not one of them, and the decision that the 718 Cayman/Boxster will be completely replaced by electric versions from 2025, stays.

Porsche will offer both ICE and electric versions of the 718 Series, at least until the fall of 2025 when the combustion engine versions become a thing of the past. In this way, Porsche wants to ensure that in case of a change of decision, it can continue to offer ICE versions of the 718 Series.

Porsche’s 718 Series currently consists of the Cayman/Boxster with mid-mounted engines with four and six cylinders, and from next year it will join the Porsche Macan whose Macan 4 and Macan Turbo versions are powered by electric motors only.

Macan 4 is powered by a dual motor with 408 hp (300 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque, the Macan Turbo has 630 hp (470 kW) and 833 lb-ft (1,130 Nm) of torque. However, all these figures are implied with overboost, which means that this power is available for a limited time even when using Launch Control. The Macan 4 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph), while the Macan Turbo reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 260 km/h (161 mph).
