All 718 models are equipped with enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) – an automatic control system helping to maintain stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. PSM improves traction under acceleration on inconsistent road surfaces. The result is a high level of driving stability – and extraordinary agility at the same time.
The optional PASM is an electronic damping control system. The system continuously adjust the damping force on each wheel, based on driving style and current road conditions. The body is also lowered by 10 mm (0.39 in). PASM has two modes, which can be selected using a button on the center console: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’, where the setup is much firmer. The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.
Performance counts in sport. True for the engine. True for the brakes. That’s why the 718, 718 Style Edition and 718 S models are equipped with four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers. The brake calipers are Black on the 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman and 718 Style Edition models, and Red on the S and GTS 4.0 models. The brake discs have a diameter of 12.99 inches at the front and 1.77 inches at the rear. The brake system on the 718 S models are reinforced on the front axle.
In the 718 GTS 4.0 models the brakes were further reinforced and adapted to the high performance: the front axle is equipped with six-piston aluminum Brakes. monobloc fixed brake calipers in red. The brake discs have a diameter of 350 mm at the front and 330 mm at the rear. To make them tougher yet lighter and enable a more rapid response – even under extreme loads – the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction. The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are crossdrilled and internally vented, which helps to provide improved wet braking and optimum cooling.
Striking design: the unmistakable silhouette with the flyline typical of a mid-mounted engine. A broad rear with black accent trim. The cockpit is fully sports-orientated.

The 718 Boxster and Cayman models have 18-inch wheels – with a distinctive design. The S models feature 19-inch wheels, the 718 Style Edition and 718 GTS 4.0 models feature 20-inch wheels. All 718 models are on alloy wheels – as is typical of sports cars. The wide rear wheels ensure high stability and high cornering performance. Rolling resistance and tire weight are comparatively low. A selection of 20-inch wheels are optionally available.
