If you’re looking for a new Porsche for sale, we know exactly where you can find a Porsche in Indianapolis, IN – Tom Wood Porsche. We also know the exact Porsche vehicle you’ll want to look at, the redesigned 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster.
While you may be familiar with the previous versions of the Porsche Boxster, the Porsche 718 Boxster incorporates several noteworthy changes, including its name. As Porsche dealers, we’re impressed that the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster is the first Porsche sports car to have a four-cylinder engine in several decades. The brand made the change from the six-cylinder engine it used to use as part of its ongoing effort to reduce emissions and improve efficiency.
When you arrive at our Indianapolis, IN Porsche dealership, you’ll learn that this isn’t the first time the Porsche brand has used “718” in the name of one of its vehicles. The brand used 718 in the name of a lightweight sports car built from 1957 through 1962 that also had a four-cylinder engine and went on to win several high-profile races, including the Targa Florio, the European Hill Climb championship, and the 24-Hours of Le Mans where it won its class.
