Spyshots: 2011 Porsche Boxster Speedster

Following weeks upon weeks of discussion over the new Panamera, Porsche comes back to remind us that the company's fourth model is not the only one to be found in its stables. Thanks to these new spyshots, we are now able to take a peak at the Porsche Boxster Speedster.

Mildly camouflaged, the Boxter Speedster is said to follow the tradition set by the older Porsche Speedster models. The new Speedster will feature a dome behind each headrest plus a lower windshield and a modified canvas hood.

The biggest questions about the future Boxster Speedster come to mind when trying to find out what it will hide under its hood. The most likely candidate for a place under the Porsche's hood is the engine found on the Boxster S Porsche Design Edition Two.

This unit, a 3.4l engine flat six, develops 303 horsepower (eight horsepower more than the series S model). It is also though that the German manufacturer also set its sights on fitting the Speedster with a turbocharged four-cylinder unit.

Porsche kept itself busy over the past few months. Apart for the overdiscussed Panamera, the Germans have also released, late last year, the updated versions of the Boxster and Cayman. A Boxster Speedster seems not to be a bad idea, despite the difficult times the entire industry is going through, because Porsche saw its sales go up by 42 percent in the US, as far as the Boxter and the Cayman are concerned.

Despite the sketchy technical specs we have at our disposal at this time, the prospect of the Boxster Speedster being launch possibly by the end of 2009 makes us confident that new information will become available shortly.
