End of an Era! Porsche Boxster & Cayman to end production by mid-2025

Porsche is set to end the production of its iconic 718 Boxster and Cayman models by mid-2025.

This decision marks the conclusion of a storied chapter for these celebrated internal combustion engine sports cars, which have been a staple of the brand’s lineup since their inception.

The 718 Boxster and Cayman, known for their impeccable balance and driving dynamics, will make way for the next generation of Porsche sports cars, which will be exclusively electric. This transition is part of Porsche’s broader strategy to innovate and meet future environmental standards while maintaining the brand’s reputation for high performance.

The new electric versions of the Boxster and Cayman will be built on the Volkswagen Group’s new SSP (Scalable Systems Platform) architecture. This platform is designed to be highly adaptable, capable of supporting everything from city cars with modest horsepower to supercars boasting over 1,600 horsepower. The electric 718 models are expected to carry forward Porsche’s commitment to driving excellence, featuring design cues inspired by the futuristic Mission R concept and incorporating advanced technologies to enhance both driving dynamics and efficiency​ (The Drive)​​ (Autoblog)​.

Spy shots of the upcoming electric 718 Boxster and Cayman have already surfaced, revealing sleek, updated designs with elements borrowed from Porsche’s latest electric vehicles, including the Taycan and Macan Electric. The new models are expected to feature lightweight construction and optimized aerodynamics to ensure that they deliver the performance and handling that Porsche fans have come to expect​ (The Drive)​.

This move towards electrification aligns with Porsche’s long-term sustainability goals and reflects a growing trend in the automotive industry as manufacturers adapt to stricter emissions regulations and the shift towards greener mobility solutions.

As production of the current 718 models winds down, enthusiasts have a limited window to acquire these beloved sports cars in their traditional form. The transition to electric is bittersweet for many, marking the end of an era but also heralding a new beginning for Porsche’s storied lineup.
