Porsche Selects Hankook Tire as OE for 718 Models

Porsche 718 models to come equipped with Hankook’s ultra-high-performance tyres from Spring 2021. The 718 Boxster and Cayman models will come equipped with tailor-made Ventus S1 Evo 3 tyres. Hankook already supplies the Ventus S1 Evo 3 as original equipment tyres for the Porsche Cayenne and Taycan models.

The high-strength bead core with the reinforced sidewalls of the Ventus S1 Evo 3 tyre ensures high driving stability, straight-line stability, and steering precision in addition to sporty, dynamic handling. The use of light rayon carcass and the aramid composite material for the belt enhances the driving experience by reducing unwanted expansion by sixty percent.

Moonhwa Hong, Vice President, OE Development Department, said, “Our engineers aimed to ensure that the Ventus S1 evo3 would outperform its predecessor in almost all areas and become the most successful original equipment tread for Hankook on the market to date. The result of their work is an ultra-high-performance tire that can provide optimum support for the excellent dynamics of sports cars such as the Porsche 718 Boxster”.

Aleix Alcaraz, development driver, Hankook Tire, said, “The result is a tire that is in perfect harmony with the vehicle. Good grip in every situation, the necessary lateral stiffness and high steering precision, all of which are essential for both safety and driving pleasure with a sports car. This is exactly what our tire delivers.” (MT)
