Starting with the Porsche 1 in 1893, Porsche has used numbered designations for performance coupes, roadsters, and convertibles. From the 901 prototype of the 1960s to the present day performance models, numbers have special meaning to Porsche. Currently, Porsche has two numbered models available in the current lineup: The Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman, and the Porsche 911 performance coupe lineup. Both numbered models are available at Beverly Hills Porsche. Browse through our current inventory to discover the numbered Porsche model that you want to experience.

What Does The Porsche 718 Offer?

The ‘718’ designation was first given in the 1950s as a racecar for the F1 and F2 circuits. Porsche retired the designation in 1964, but it was recently revived for the development of two production models.

The 718 Porsche Cayman and 718 Porsche Boxster offer designs inspired by the 718 RSK models of yesteryear. However, they are engineered with the absolute best that modern technology and aerodynamics have to offer. Both the new 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster have several key similarities that Porsche aficionados should know:

  • Both models start with a 2.0L turbocharged boxer engines rated at 300 HP and capable of 0-60 MPH acceleration of 4.9 seconds
  • The Boxster and Cayman models have top speed of 170 MPH
  • The two popular roadsters are rear-wheel drive
  • S models are available for each 718 to add even greater power and handling to your driving experience

Why Is 911 A Special Number For Porsche?

Porsche 911 models have been in production since the early 1960s. Since then, 911 sports cars have developed a reputation for offering a racetrack-level driving experience in a vehicle that can also be driven daily. The current Porsche 911 lineup ranges from the 911 Carrera that’s capable of taking on the Los Angeles freeway system to the new 911 GT3 that produces 500 HP and a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 3.2 seconds. Key features available with the current generation of 911-designated models include:

  • Porsche Active Suspension Management providing electronic damping control adjusts the force on each wheel based on road conditions and driving style
  • Available Sport Chrono package to enable the highest levels of sport-tuning for the chassis, engine, and transmission
  • Every new 911 model comes with a turbocharged engine for greater power when you want it
  • A rigid, lightweight body design to reduce weight, while still providing the strength required for a stable driving experience
