Porsche Teases New Roadster – Is It The 718 Boxster Spyder?

Porsche has released a new teaser video that previews an upcoming model.

While the clip only provides a few glimpses of the car, it’s based on the 718 Boxster. The company didn’t have much to say about the model, but described it as “perfectly irrational.” Porsche also suggested the car will be introduced soon.

While the company is keeping details under wraps, the model is likely the 718 Boxster Spyder. That remains unconfirmed, but Porsche has been testing undisguised prototypes since August of last year.  This means an unveiling should be right around the corner.

Set to follow in the footsteps of the original Boxster Spyder, the all-new model is slated to an aggressive front bumper that echoes the one on the 718 Boxster GTS.

Bigger changes occur farther back as the roadster has a unique rear lid with a double bubble design. The two ‘humps’ are connected by a floating third brake light similar to the one used on the 911 Speedster.

Previous spy photos have shown the model will also have a massive diffuser and a dual exhaust system. Other highlights include a new rear bumper and lightweight alloy wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system with red calipers.

Like its predecessor, the 718 Boxster Spyder is expected to be powered by a six-cylinder engine. Rumors have suggested it could produce anywhere from 395 hp (298 kW / 400 PS) to 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS). That’s a pretty wide range, but we should find out the final numbers soon enough.

Are you ready?
