Porsche 718 Boxster And 718 Cayman Nears The End Of Its Cycle



It’s almost over and done with the Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman. At least in Europe. Brand new copies of the Porsche duo will become unsaleable as of July, so Porsche will almost completely remove the duo from its European delivery range. Two extreme versions may remain.

At the end of 2023, it was announced that the Porsche Macan, the model without combustion engines, would disappear from the market in the European Union this year. The electronic architecture of the Macan would no longer meet the requirements set by the EU in the field of cybersecurity as of July 1. It would be considered too expensive to adapt that basis for the ageing model. Something similar seems to apply to the Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, according to reports from Motor1.

The Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman are now also quite old and were therefore developed before the soon-to-come-to-effect requirements for digital ones and zeros were known. They will not be modernized for the EU market alone, which means that the pair will no longer be available to order. New copies can no longer be registered in the EU after July 1. Stock cars that have already been registered will undoubtedly continue to be offered for a while. AutoWeek understands from Porsche that the GT4 RS and the Spyder RS ​​may remain.

Just as the Macan with combustion engines in Europe was followed by a fully electric model with the same name, the 718 will also have a fully electric replacement. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
