Watch the New Electric Porsche 718 Boxster Lap the Nürburgring
Porsche confirmed in 2021 that the next-generation 718 would be fully electric. Since then we’ve seen plenty of spy shots of the engine-less roadster out testing. Now, we get to see it on the move for the first time thanks to this spy video from the Nürburgring.
CarSpyMedia on YouTube caught this 718 Boxster prototype lapping the Nordschleife during a recent industry test pool session. As with previous test mules, we can see updated front and rear fascias and a lack of side air intakes, indicating this is very likely the upcoming electric 718 under wraps.
Porsche has yet to release any data or performance specs on its upcoming electric 718, so there’s no telling how much heavier the batteries will make the car, or how much the electric motors will improve performance. The company says it plans to unleash the car in the “middle of the decade,” so we shouldn’t have to wait long to learn more.
