The final bow for gasoline models

In a move that marks the culmination of an era, Porsche bids farewell to its combustion-engine versions of the beloved 718 Boxster and Cayman in Europe. This strategic pivot comes as Porsche gears up to electrify these sports car legends. Further cementing their commitment to green mobility, this transition follows suit with the discontinuation of their top-selling Macan's gasoline counterpart, influenced by new EU cybersecurity mandates. By July 2024, these gasoline models will vanish from showrooms, making way for their electrified successors.

  • 718 Spyder RS remaining in limited editions

Porsche's seamless shift to electric

The regulatory landscape applies equally to internal combustion and electric vehicles. Porsche anticipates no bumps on the road to introducing its electric version of the 718. The upgrade costs for gasoline versions are not justifiable when a logical shift to electric beckons—a sentiment echoed by early sightings of Porsche's electric prototype braving Arctic tests. The near-final characteristics of this model hint at an imminent reveal scheduled before year-end, with full-scale production set for 2025.

Porsche's accelerating electric ambitions

Under the leadership of Oliver Blume, Porsche isn't merely converting existing models but also expanding its portfolio. Plans include rolling out an ultra-luxurious electric SUV that will sit above the current Cayenne. Described as a ‘highly sportive interpretation' of an SUV, it reinforces Porsche's mission to blend luxury and performance within the burgeoning era of electrification.

In spite of some manufacturers backing away from the EV market, Porsche maintains its bold target: achieving an 80% share in electric vehicle deliveries by 2030. This strategy underlines not only Porsche's belief in electromobility's potential but also represents a steadfast commitment towards a sustainable future.
