All Porsche 718 models can now be ordered with the seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK).

Porsche dual-clutch transmission for flagship 718 models

15/9/2020

Porsche Centre teesside is delighted to announce that the Boxster and Cayman 718 GTS 4.0 variants, as well as the range-topping 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 models, are now available with optional automatic transmission. With PDK, there are no interruptions in acceleration during gear changes which increases comfort and improves acceleration values. 

Compared with the same models with manual transmission, the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 now accelerate from 0-100 km/h half a second faster, in 3.9 seconds. They reach the 200 km/h mark in 13.4 seconds (0.4 seconds faster).

The 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and 718 Boxster GTS 4.0, both with 294 kW (400 PS), also improve in the standard sprint from 0-100 km/h by half a second to 4.0 seconds, and then reach the 200 km/h mark in 13.7 seconds (0.4 seconds faster compared with manual transmission).

In the 718 GTS 4.0 models, the standard Sport Chrono package adapts the gear shift characteristics of the PDK according to four different driving modes (Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual). In Sport mode, it operates with faster gear changes, shifts down earlier with automatic throttle blips, and supports optimal acceleration with later shift points. The even more athletic Sport Plus mode is tailored for maximum performance and fully exploits the rpm reserves of the naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine. Launch Control is also integrated within Sport Plus, which activates an automatic race start.

*Figures are intended for comparability purposes. The fuel consumption you achieve under real-life driving conditions and CO2 produced will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted after registration, variations in driving styles, weather conditions and vehicle load.

Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at  porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent, All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.

Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO2 values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO2 values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO2 emissions of a car.
