Porsche also announced two new Touring models to add to their 718 lineup. The Touring edition of the 718 will be available in both the Boxster and Cayman. Porsche Touring special editions are known to strip some of the non-essential items from the vehicle and solely focus on performance. The 718 T is no exception to this rule. What you are left with is a lighter, simpler performance machine that gives the driver a classic driving experience.
The new 718 T is said to come with a turbocharged 2.0L, 300 horsepower engine, and will be available in a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 718 T models will come with additional upgrades such as 20 inch wheels, the Sport Chrono package, Porsche Torque Vectoring, and Porsche Active Suspension Management, which lowers the 718 T about an inch lower than normal. The 718 T is sure to be a great edition to Porsche’s successful line of Touring performance editions.

The 2020 Porsche Macan Sport edition could be the most popular of the recent announcements considering the Porsche Macan was Porsche’s best-selling model in 2018. The 2020 Macan S also comes with improvements to performance and technology both inside and out.
The taillights and headlights of the Macan S feature LED technology that will be standard moving forward. The Macan S will come equipped with a 3.0L V6 turbocharged engine making around 350 horsepower. This engine is more powerful than ever before for the Macan model, and it will be paired perfectly with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and Porsche’s all-wheel drive traction management. These performance upgrades make the 2020 Macan S are very strong performance SUV, which is a growing segment.
