The new Porsche Boxster has been spied testing again.

The latest pictures reveal more details of the car, including some of the aerodynamic sculpting that is being used to make it the cleanest, most economical Porsche available when it goes on sale in late 2010 or early 2011.

In particular, the right-hand door is sporting a fin, which is being used to channel more air towards the side-mounted intakes.

Further economy gains are expected to be made from the use of lighter weight materials - every panel is said to be new - and revised engines. Reports suggest that a 200bhp, sub 200g/km of Co2 four-cylinder engine could be available on a new entry-level model.

The photographers are also reporting that the car is slightly longer and wider than the current model. The increased size should help high-speed stability, as well as giving occupants more room.

In addition, the increased dimensions have fuelled speculation that the company is looking to fit a new, even smaller model into the Porsche range at a later date, possibly based on the VW BlueSport concept.

Pedestrian crash protection regulations will also have a bearing on the car's design, with the front end being tweaked as a result.

The new Porsche Boxster is expected to be officially unveiled next spring, at the Geneva motor show.

The "fin" looks like a groove to me. The camo on the bottom of the door and rear quarter panel suggests to me that the groove is the height of the air intake and that the intake doesn't have anything blocking it at the leading edge. ie: a much bigger side intake.

Looking forward to the unveiling.

As it has been with the Boxster for some time now, Porsche's tendency to make fast cars faster year after year continues to impress.

^^^ well, by doing that, Porsche has gotten themselves into a hole. The Cayman is now SO good, that with just a hint of more power, it is better than a 911.

For people that want a Cayman. There will always be someone out there that wants more and can afford it. So to all the people buying higher models, they get more. It's not bad for the lower end Porsche buyers to get more too
