2025 Porsche 718 : To Go Electric But Will Be Significantly Lighter Than The Taycan

2025 Porsche 718 – A while ago we speculated about Porsche’s plans to transform the 718 into an entirely electric car. Then, we’ve gathered more information from various sources inside and outside of the Porsche. We not only received confirmation that the 911 will be a fully battery-electric vehicle, but we also discovered the fact that it would be completely separated from the 911, which was revealed to continue to use its combustion engine until 2030, and may not even be hybridized.

The 718 will continue be offered in Boxster as well as Cayman form. Although the final word hasn’t been announced however, it is 100% confident there is a good chance that the Boxster will be sporting its cloth top rather than switching to a fixed-roof option. The body design will stay very similar to model that is currently in production, but it will come with Porsche’s latest “electric front” with wider headlights, similar to the Taycan. The design for the next 718 is being shown off with its Mission R concept car at the Munich IAA auto show. With no aggressive aerodynamics and reduced in its aggressive style The Mission R gives a good concept of what a final 718 Cayman might appear to be.

Interior

The interior hasn’t been revealed yet, but we’re sure that it will be most modern Porsche to date and more modern as it’s predecessor, the Taycan and a huge change from the conventionally designed 718’s cockpit. In the design of the interface for the user, Porsche is keeping the clientele in mind. In China the biggest market, the age of a buyer in the 718 is only 31. According to the press release “This will be the most modern Porsche.”

Fans of sports cars have expressed concern about the possibility that an electric 718 turn out to be too heavy. The Taycan is, after all is between 4568 pounds in the base model, with the battery that is small and 5199 pounds with it’s Turbo S Cross Turismo, in spite of its small size. The 718 on the other hand it will be an incredible feat of technology that is lightweight The weight of the target for the interior is just under 3650 pounds. Porsche accomplishes this by placing the 718 on a recently created sports-car platform, which is believed to be greater than a reduced model of PPE platform. Scale economies will be achieved through electronic components and invisibly placed ones However, many parts that relate to dynamics are distinct.

Engine

The power ratings are currently to be determined, however we’ve learned that basic models, which are priced to be significantly lower than the 911 but remain within the range of the current 718 will feature a rear-mounted motor. More powerful versions will have an electric front motor which makes an electric model the very first all-wheel drive version of the brand name. As with that of the Mission R concept and unlike the Taycan the 718 to come will have a single-speed drive. Insufficient range is the problem for electric vehicles. This is especially the case for vehicles that are primarily used for pleasure, such as the 718. It is said that 250 miles is the ideal minimum, as well as that “more is better.” Furthermore, Porsche is working hard at expanding both range and charging performance.

With regards to power and performance, top versions will go the 911 realm. However, Porsche does not care about the possibility of overlap since the choices of the electric 718 or the 911 powered by gasoline will be fundamentally different in terms of technology. We expect to see it remain this the way it is, as Porsche does not want to entertain the possibility that it will transform its 911 into an electric vehicle. Hybrid technology isn’t a good idea for the completely electric 718 model and is not yet determined for the future of the 911, and could be penalized with a substantial weight penalty. When it comes to racing related The Mission R could pave the way for an electric race series, however there is no decision yet.

The 718 model that comes next model, which is likely to be named after it is scheduled for the market launch in 2024. It is expected to arrive in its home in U.S. as a 2025 model at the earliest, unless plans are put back. The gasoline-powered version currently in production may be offered alongside the electric model for a short time. The length of the production runs will be determined by the forthcoming Euro 7 emissions regulation, which could cause havoc to the future development of gasoline engines.
