Porsche shows off new Boxster

Automaker Porsche is to give the motor industry a glimpse of its new mid-engined Boxster roadster at the Bologna Motor Show next month.

The company believes that the RS 60 Spyder version of the model is representative of the design principles and its sporting character displayed in its Type 718 RS 60 and Boxster S vehicles from the 1960s.

However, performance differs from the original, with a modified sports exhaust engine, dual tailpipes and 19-inch diameter alloys.

A Carrera Red leather interior and GT Silver Metallic paintwork decorates the interior and exterior respectively.

"In its distinctive design, features and philosophy, the Boxster RS 60 Spyder echoes the classic motorsport era of the 1960s, and in particular the success of Porsche sports cars during that period," said the firm.

Meanwhile, Carpages is reporting that a 42-year-old Volkswagen Beetle recently beat a Porsche 997 Carrera S at a race meet at Santa Pod in Bournemouth.
