Porsche: Porsche

Is there 6 types of all Porsche models? Is there a distinction between Cayman and Boxster?

Porsche full lineup session 2019

I think that there are many people who received DM from Porsche, people who saw advertisements on the Web etc., but the following event that Porsche will hold under the name of "special 2 days to meet one of destiny" ↓

Porsche full lineup session 2019 holding outline

Day: October 5, 2019 (Sat) -October 6, 2019 (Sun)
*Porsche Center Shizuoka and Porsche Center Hamamatsu will be held from Saturday, October 12th to Sunday, October 13th, 2019
time: It seems to be the same as the business hours of each Porsche center (for example, PC Ginza from 10:00 to 18:00)
place: Porsche centers nationwide
Official site:Porsche full lineup session 2019 

This event (is it fair?), In other words

"All Porsche models are waiting at each Porsche center, so you can see all the models at once! You will definitely find the one you want from all the models!"

Feeling like ... I wonder. It's my own interpretation, but ^^

All Porsche models. In other words, that is

  • 911
  • Cayman
  • Boxster
  • Cayenne
  • Macan
  • Panamera
  • Taycan

There are 7 types, right?

However, this time it is still early, so considering that Taycan will not come in, there should be 6 types of Porsche lineup prepared in Japan at the moment, without Taycan.

However.

This photo was posted at the beginning of the guide, which was in the DM received from the Porsche Center, and also to symbolize this "all model lineup".

Looking at it, I felt something strange ↓

Expansion.

Hmm? ?? Isn't it strange that there are still 6 types of Taycan? ?? But ... to me ... I can only see 5! !!

Let's take a closer look again.

From the left, Cayenne Macan Panamera Cayman 911.

that? Where is this person ...?

Yes, isn't Boxster? ?? Boxster Come on! !! !!

For me, "Cayman" and "Boxster" were treated as independent models, but by seeing this picture,

"From Porsche's point of view, maybe Cayman and Boxster are no longer separated as a general model, but a kind within one big model?"

that's what I thought. Oh, I'm sorry if I said the obvious thing again ^^

Cayman and Boxster are models called "718"

Thinking about it and remembering, when selecting the model of the car you want to see first on the Porsche site, it seems that the choice did not have the letters "Cayman" and "Boxster", but "718" ..

I'm curious, so check.

Ah! !! !! After all it is "718" ~! So, including Taycan, all Porsche models are "6 types".

If you look further inside this "718", "Cayman" and "Boxster" will appear as "718 model types" for the first time.

Well, both Cayman and Boxster are the model of "718" from Porsche, and among them, "718 coupe is Cayman" and "718 open car is Boxster".

At the time of 981, I think that "Cayman and Boxster were separated as a general model" (I'm sorry if it is different), then "718 Cayman" "718 Boxster", this time"718 Cayman GT4" "718 Spider"At that time, as a model, I wonder if these two units have already been combined as "718". That's why I didn't dare to put the name "Boxster".

This photo ↓ is the one that Porsche was used around May 2018.

In the photo at this time, both Cayman and Boxster are listed as one of the lineup, so "Cayman and Boxster" still existed (recognized) as "models" respectively. I thought it might be ↓

And the photo below ↓ is the full lineup of Porsche models that are currently (September 2019) appearing on Porsche's US site etc. After all Boxster is gone!

The spider model that was called "981 Boxster Spider" at the time of the 981 Boxster of the previous generation is not "718 Boxster Spider" in this 718 Boxster, but the name Boxster is no longer the model name and it is called "718 Spider" I also feel a big change in that.

In this way, there are currently 6 types of "all Porsche models" as "718, 911, Taycan, Panamera, Macan, Cayenne", and in the "model" separation, it is already with Cayman. I don't even see the name Boxster.

Ha ~. I was deeply convinced that "718" was the model name from now on.

Of course, I think that the names Cayman and Boxster will disappear, but I feel that I can understand that the way each model is handled in Porsche has changed slightly.

Porsche exhibited at the Porsche Center

So, apart from the above picture, the following cars are also posted on the DM, and the car in red is "No exhibition at the store".

In other words, it seems that cars other than red letters will be exhibited at each Porsche center.

  • 718 Cayman
  • 718 Boxster
  • New 911 Carrera
  • New 911 Carrera Cabriolet
  • Panamera
  • Panamera Sports Turismo
  • New Macan
  • Cayenne
  • Cayenne Coupe
  • Taycan

If you are considering purchasing Porsche, please come to the Porsche Center from October 5th to 6th ^ ^

I'd like to go there this time, but it's difficult. Hmmm.
