Official – Porsche Boxster Spyder announced image

The German based automaker Porsche has recently announced its plans to introduce a Boxster Spyder, along with other vehicles made under the Volkswagen Group.

Porsche is getting ready to officially pull the wraps off yet another model, after the introduction of the 911 GT3 RS and the Cayman GT4, as this will be a Boxster Spyder. The model in question has been announced recently by the car manufacturer, along with other vehicles signed by the Volkswagen Group, including the Audi A4, Q7, the Skoda Superb, the Seat Ibiza and so on.

“This year, the Volkswagen Group brands will be launching 50 new models, successors and upgrades. These include key models such as the new Touran, the Audi Q7 and Audi A4, the Porsche 911 and Porsche Boxster Spyder, the ŠKODA Superb and the SEAT Ibiza, as well as the new Caddy and the new T6 from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles”, said the car manufacturer in its official press release.

Porsche was cheap on providing us with more details on the upcoming Boxster Spyder but as a small reminder, the current model has been officially unveiled at the 2009 Los Angeles Motor Show. This has been positioned above the Boxster S and it was the lightest Porsche on the market at the time, weighing 1,275 kg, 80 kg less than the Boxster S. The model was powered by a 6-cylinder boxer engine, rated at 320 HP (239 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft), 10 HP more than what the Boxster S was offering. The unit was connected to a manual or a PDK transmission.
