In Porsche's long and storied history, the 718 - a mid-engine sportscar from the 1950's and 60's - stands out as one of the most powerful and impactful models in the brand's deep line-up. Now, after nearly half a century, the Porsche 718 is coming back, albeit in an entirely new form. Taking the innovation and classic appeal of the vintage racer, Porsche has decided to rebrand them as part of the Porsche Boxster and Cayman models for 2016. And while the technical specs are light at this point, Porsche says the two models will share more similarities than ever before, including some touches of the vintage racer that helped to shape the brand. Both Porsche 718 models will be unveiled throughout 2016--check them out in more detail below.
