Porsche reveals Boxster Spyder, will debut Los Angeles Auto Show, video included | Rpmgo.com

Porsche has revealed yesterday that its Boxster lineup will receive a brand new model next year, the Spyder convertible, which will make its first appearance at December’s Los Angeles Motor Show in California.

Described by Porsche in three words: “light, efficient, open” the new Boxster spider will have a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine, which will produce 320 HP, beating the Boxster S’ 310 output. Porsche’s already famous PDK gearbox will be offered as an option, making the car spring from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds, and to a top speed of 267 km/h (166 mph). What’s more interesting is that it will support such a speed with the roof down. Even more attractive is that it will consume just 9.3 liters/100 km (that’s 30.4 mph) in the New European driving cycle benchmark (NEDC)

Don’t go thinking that switching the roof with a soft top one would make the new Boxster fatter, as Porsche boasts that at a weight of 1,275 kg (2,811 lbs) is the lightest in the whole vehicle lineup. An all new sports suspension has been added, as well as new styling touches like revamped front and rear bumpers, 10-spoke alloy wheels and new air intakes. on the inside, the new sport seats awaits the drive, as well as sill plates with Boxster Spyder inscriber on them.

The new car, as I’ve said, will debut in December in Los Angeles, and go on sale in February 2010, for around €53,100 ( around $79,000). You can hit the jump to see the promotional video that the German company released for this model.
