Spotted: Porsche Boxster RS

Hair, January 23, 2015

That Porsche hangs a stronger version of the Boxster is not unlikely. In the past there was a special model called the RS 60 Spyder. It was intended as a tribute to the motorsport activities of the brand in the 1960s. In addition, the RS Spyder with 303 hp had 60 hp more than eight then " S " model.

More than 340 HP

A now finally caught Erlkönig show that it is again such a top model could crown the small series. The current Boxster is on the market since 2012. In addition to a basic version with 265 strong 2.7 - liter boxer there's the S with 315 hp from 3.4 liters and the GTS with the same engine, but 330 horsepower. The RS is expected to pump iron with at least 340 hp, but are also more feasible. The Audi TT Roadster, one of the main competitors of the Boxster has, in its top edition TTS currently 310 cents under the hood. However, the RS variant of the TT is still pending. You probably will not come before 2016 and have more than 340 hp, brings much that is already the current model on the road. And then would not the Boxster opponents BMW Z4 sDrive35i (340 hp ) and Jaguar F-Type Convertible ( 340-495 hp ) are kept in check.

Amended apron and spoiler

The conclusion that a strong performance lookup (and even higher performance ) also allows the skirt of Erlkönigs. With huge air intakes à la GT3 RS it points out that there is probably more cooling air is required. In addition, the higher rear spoiler fuels the suspicion of having more needs in terms of pressure. When the RS comes on the market, is not yet known, but we do not expect 2016 to him. (HD)
