Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder: new pictures show bespoke roof setup
Lightened drop top will swap turbo-four power for high-revving unit of its sibling
Development of the most driver-focused version of the Porsche 718 Boxster is now at an advanced stage, suggesting that the car is due for reveal later this year, before arriving on roads in winter.
The upcoming sports car has been caught on camera wearing almost no camouflage, showing that engineers are finalising the settings of the model, which will use a naturally aspirated, flat six engine in place of the regular Boxster's four-cylinder alternatives. Development cars have been spotted with the roof up and down, showing the bespoke roof and rear deck.
The next Boxster Spyder, which will be heavily related to the 718 Cayman GT4, will use a 911 GT3-sourced 4.0-litre engine in place of the current hottest engine in the 718 range, the turbocharged 2.5-litre flat four, in order to stay more closely aligned with its predecessors — which have all been hailed by enthusiasts as excellent driver's cars.
