Porsche has introduced its new turbocharged 718 Boxster at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The German automaker is revamping its lineup by offering turbocharged four-cylinder engines all over the place, meaning the 911 Turbo is now pretty much a misnomer. To avoid further confusion, the Boxster now proudly wears the 718 nameplate and is powered by an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The more powerful 718 Boxster S is bolstered by a larger 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, providing 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque.

According to the automaker, the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster will go zero-to-60 mph in 4.5 seconds while the Boxster S will do it in four seconds flat. Fuel economy has improved by 14 percent compared to their predecessors, although that is on the generous New European Driving Cycle.

    Very hard to tell the styling changes. More of a refresh if you ask me.
