Default Spied Porsche Boxster Speedster

is planning to drop an updated version of its Boxster early next year, but it looks as though the German sports car maker has more in store for the popular drop top than just a refresh. Our spy photographers just spotted a Speedster version of the Boxster undergoing some shakedown testing.
Following the tradition of the former 911 models, the Boxster will soon be available as a Speedster, featuring a dome behind each headrest plus a lower windshield and a modified canvas hood.
The Speedster variant looks to be wearing unique wheels as well as a few extra aero bits.
Under the bonnet, we expect the car to get the engine of the Boxster S Porsche Design Edition 2, developing 303 horsepower. No word on when we might see the production version of the Boxster Speedster, but with the standard carís unveiling just weeks away, we donít expect the Speedster to stay under wraps for lon

Default Porsche Boxster Speedster (2010)

We've caught more photos of the new Porsche Boxster 'Speedster' testing in Germany. It's the new 2010 version of the Boxster with a speedster style chopped top and power domes.

These new aerial photographs afford a peek inside the new Porsche Speedster; you can make out the ramped power domes behind the front seats nestling under the disguise. We also hear the speedster, which will be launched in 2010, will have a lowered windscreen for more al fresco entertainment.

In a U-turn from our last story, we now think this is the Speedster, not the new Porsche Boxster 'R', which is a separate, harder version of the sports car that will be revealed by the end of 2009, probably at the LA show. We don't yet know the definitive name of the new harder Porsche, although insiders have referred to the go-faster version as the Boxster R.

And how does this new Porsche Boxster R differ from any other Porsche Boxster?

Externally this special edition differs from its banal brothers thanks to a lower front bumper (with single rather than double strakes across the intakes Ė all important to the people that might buy this car), plus new side intakes and a bigger rear spoiler. And beneath that disguised rear deck is thought to be a double-bubble Speedster-style hump.

Under the skin this new Porsche is expected to use the 3.4-litre flat-six currently found in the Boxster S, but with a few tweaks to lift power closer to 320bhp. This Boxster also sits lower on sports suspension, features new alloys wheels and comes with Porscheís PCCB ceramic brakes as standard. There will also be interior tweaks akin to the cabin of the fettled 911 Sport Classic unveiled earlier this year.

There's no word on the price, but the 250 Sport Classic 911s each cost over £140k, so this Boxster could end up being pretty costly. Expect to see it unveiled at the 2009 LA auto show in early December, one year on from the revealing of the facelifted Boxster and Cayman
