Porsche, the high-performance auto manufacturer in Germany, is seriously working for the early release of the 2018 Porsche 988 on the global market. The 988 model is expected to come with an attractive and a bit different design than we used to from Porsche, we would say it reminds a bit on Ferrari 488 if you check render images. With the intention of increasing the performance and better fuel economy, Porsche is going to outfit its new coupe with very powerful engine. Also, it should get a well-equipped cabin, including the most up-to-date technologies in its equipment section. The automaker expects that these features and changes in design will attract customers both existing and prospective.

2018 Porsche 988 Exterior
Although the automaker has not yet revealed the external cues of the future 988 Porsche, it is expected that it should come with the recognizable face, meaning it is going to have the same front part as that of the existing 918 model. However, it will be slightly longer and wider than the 918. The increased width allows the new vehicle to accommodate a powerful, huge engine.

The body will be made out of lightweight materials, like carbon fiber and aluminum with the intention of reducing its overall weight, thereby improving its performance. New Porsche 988 2018 will have a lower bumper in the front and its air intakes have been well designed to improve the aerodynamics. Both headlights and taillights will be designed with the LED technology to offer it a luxurious and attractive front and rear looks.
New Porsche 988 2018 Interior
As we used from Germans performance models, the interior is always simple, but beautiful, luxurious, and comfortable, this model should follow the same pattern. As a result, it comes outfitted with several up to date functions and premium materials. The 2018 Porsche 988 seats will be prepared from high-quality leather to offer a comfortable ride. The control panel will also be made out of premium leather and carbon fiber, whereas the info panel(probably with latest Porsche communication management) will come equipped with a big touch-screen. Some of the other interior features should include the latest version of the navigation system, air conditioning, premium audio device, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, traction control, seat belts, and airbags.

The engine section of the 2018 Porsche 988 gets more updates when compared to those of the body and cabin. As we heard, the new vehicle should come with a new powerful engine, which will keep up the conventional horizontal position. It is possible to be outfitted with a V8 engine with the capacity of 4.0 liters to deliver the vehicle the power of 600 ponies. This should be more than that of its class competitors, such as Mclaren 650S and Ferrari 458 Speciale. The powertrain will be mated to a seven-velocity double clutch transmission system to offer better performance figures and fuel economy than those of the earlier models.
