Porsche‘s $630,000 918 Spyder isn’t the only new sports car the company is seeking to add to its lineup. According to reports from Bloomberg, the German sports car maker is set to debut a new line of smaller roadsters set to slot in below the current Boxster.

A sub-Boxster model has been rumored for years, but the Bloomberg article contains the first concrete evidence pointing towards it, quoting Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn as confirming the new model.

Winterkorn’s assertion lends credibility to the rumors that one platform will spawn not only the new Porsche, but the Volkswagen Bluesport roadster and the long-rumored Audi R4, albeit with different engines that are representative of their respective brands.
