Hankook To Supply Tyres For 2021 Porsche 718 Models

Global leading tire company Hankook Tire will equip the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman with its ultra-high performance (UHP) tires beginning this spring.

The tires are tailor-made Ventus S1 evo 3 tires in sizes 235/40 ZR19 (92Y) N-0 for the front axle and 265/40 ZR19 (98Y) N-0 for the rear axle.

This is in addition to the Porsche Cayenne and Taycan models, which Hankook already equips with Ventus S1 evo 3 premium tires in SUV and EV specifications, respectively.

“Porsche stands for particularly high-performance sports cars, delivering a high level of driving pleasure and, at the same time, full suitability for everyday use. However, this also makes tire development very complex,” says Sanghoon Lee, President of Hankook Tire Europe. “We are therefore very pleased with this original equipment, as it demonstrates the impressive performance of our products across the entire range.”

About Ventus S1 evo3

The Ventus S1 evo3 is ensures high driving stability, straight-line stability and steering precision in addition to sporty, dynamic handling. To further enhance driving stability and steering precision, a particularly light rayon carcass is used, along with a special aramid composite material in the belt area.

Together, this reduces the unwanted expansion of the rolling circumference by up to 60 percent, even at very high speeds, compared to conventional materials. The special tread compound using high-performance natural resins ensures the necessary grip and excellent traction and braking performance on both dry and wet roads.

Klaus Krause, Head of the European Hankook Development Center in Hanover explains: “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.”

“Sports cars with a mid-engine are always something special. That’s why the special driving experience of the Porsche 718 Boxster played a big role in the test drives,” confirms Aleix Alcaraz, development driver at Hankook Tire, responsible for the sports car division.
