How to find the used Porsche 718 of your dreams
An Approved Used Porsche Cayman or its convertible sibling, the Porsche Boxster, looks a million dollars and excels when it comes to handling and driving fun. What’s more, its sublime steering, superb control weights and exceptional ride quality make it a brilliant long-distance sports car. The driving position is absolutely spot on, while the cabin oozes style, quality and ergonomic excellence.
At Dick Lovett Porsche, we can offer you a great choice of used Porsche 718 in prime condition. Just follow the steps set out for you here to work out which used 718 could be your next car.
First, decide whether you’d like a Coupé or a Cabriolet
Either a used Cayman or a used Boxster will give you a four cylinder engine, a choice of manual or automatic gearbox, rear wheel drive and trim and spec options. It’s the cabriolet roof that gives the Boxster added appeal in the summer months, while the Cayman scores points for its similarities to the 911 Coupe, considered the ultimate Porsche by purists.
Next, work out your budget
Naturally, Porsche Approved used cars represent excellent value. For example, at Dick Lovett Porsche we currently have a used Boxster GTS available for £59,990, whereas a brand new Boxster GTS costs £66,340. This is slightly more expensive than a new Cayman GTS at £64,480, as the Boxster is a highly desirable convertible. View this approved used Cayman GTS here priced at £53,850.
Third, choose a trim – standard, S, T or GTS
Beyond the roof, the main differences between Porsche 718s are in the engine size and speed. Standard and T models have 2-litre engine with 300 PS, capable of reaching 0 - 62 in 5.3 seconds. S models feature a 2.5-litre engine with 350 PS, achieving 0 - 62 in 4.9 seconds.
A new Porsche 718 GTS has a 4.0-litre engine with 400 PS, capable of 0 - 62 in 4.5 seconds. A preowned 718 GTS may not quite match this, but it is still an awesome performer and a great choice. Take a look at this Approved Used Porsche Boxster GTS.
Decide how important mileage is to you
There are two ways to look at mileage on a used car. Low mileage on the odometer is a good indication that the car has been someone’s pride and joy. The mileage on some Approved Used Porsche 718s we have in stock are so low the car is nearly new!
At the other end of the scale, high mileage can be an indication the car has belonged to a driving enthusiast who has made sure their Porsche is well looked after. And don’t forget, every Approved Used Porsche has been subjected to rigorous checks to ensure its in the best possible condition. High mileage cars are usually priced more competitively, so you can get yourself a really good deal.
This 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman example only has 324 miles on it!
And finally, narrow down the incredible array of colours and interiors on offer
As you know, Porsche is not a brand to skimp on quality and style. You can find used Porsche Boxster and Cayman in a selection of exterior colours, with interior finishes ranging from premium Alcantara to high quality Sport-Tex cloth and leather.
The Porsche 718 also comes with many features as standard. Including auto start-stop, sports exhaust, driver information and assistance technology, connected communications packages and high quality safety and security – to list just a few.
You may also find some of Porsche’s great range of optional extras already fitted in a used Porsche. Such as technology, performance and body kit upgrades, saving you the trouble of having it installed or having to pay full price.
