New chapter, new design
 
To launch the new model, Porsche also made changes in terms of design. The roadster receives a wider front section with larger air intakes in order to express the new concept of turbo engines. The 718 Boxster also features new bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. Four-point LED daytime running lights are available as an option. In profile the model features the new stylized wings, new sills and larger air intakes with two fins. The doors are now designed without door handles protectors. At the back the 718 Boxster has a wider appearance, especially due to the integrated strip between the taillights with the "Porsche" badge. The completely redesigned rear lights are distinctive thanks to the use of three-dimensional LED technology and the four-point brake lights.
