Porsche Boxster GT4 Spied Testing

Porsche Boxster GT4 Spied Testing

Although we have caught the upcoming Porsche Cayman GT4 testing numerous times, we now have photos of its drop-top twin, the Boxster GT4.

This prototype is fitted with larger and deeper air intakes in the front thanks to a revised bumper while a small “duck tail” spoiler is seen on the rear.  Power is expected to sit between 370 and 400 hp, but the source is still unknown. The current car’s 3.4-liter flat six may be tuned to crank out more power, while the possibility remains that a four-cylinder hybrid setup will find its way under the hood of the GT4 cars.

The Boxster and Cayman GT4 are expected to fit into the lineup just above the base 911 Carrera when it comes to performance, marking the first time Porsche’s small sports car will be faster than its famed 911.

While the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission will certainly be offered, the prototype we caught testing was fitted with a manual transmission, suggesting that the production car will have a do-it-yourself option.

When are where these cars will debut is a mystery, but the 2015 Geneva Motor Show seems like a natural fit for the official launch.
