Porsche 718 Boxster GT4 Rendering Brings GT3 RS Elements, Because Why Not?

The Porche 911 R has done much more than offering 991 units of a Zuffenhausen machine focused primarily on pure driving. With the R, the German carmaker has shown that it has the ability to build special editions on the move and get them done within a year.

You see, the 911 R was born as a response to all those voices complaining about the GT3 and GT3 RS coming in PDK-only form. The German automaker rolled its sleeve, started searching through its delightful parts bin, and came up with what is now the second most expensive model in the 911 line-up (after the Turbo S Cabriolet).

Given Porsche's demonstration, we can now open a whole new chapter when it comes to dreaming about the kind of machines the company could offer. And here we are, talking about a potential special edition that would unleash the 987 Boxster's full potential. The rendering above, which comes from Hansen Art, shows a potential Boxster GT4.

Porsche's engineering genius can only limit the dynamic drawbacks of the Boxster's open top form up to a point. This is why the company has always bet on the Cayman when willing to prove a mid-engined go-fast point, while the Boxster special editions were not 100 percent focused on going fast.

This is also true for the pre-revamp Boxster and Cayman, with the first's Spyder incarnation also playing the styling card, while the Cayman GT4, with its 911 GT3 suspension, is an all-out dynamic effort.

However, we're here to show you what could happen if Porsche ever reached the conclusion that it needs to make the most out of the 718 Boxster platform.

This digitally manipulated image shows a 718 Boxster wearing 911 GT3 RS-inspired elements, such as the louvres on the front wings or the rear wing.

While the 718 Boxster will obviously get its swansong when the time is right, don't expect Porsche to come up with a model such as the one we see here, as the Boxster-Cayman split mentioned above still stands. But a tuner such as Ruf could come up with such a proposal.
