Now that Porsche has officially confirmed that the baby Boxster (also know as the 550 ) is not dead, we have created a new rendering inspired by the new generation Boxster unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It is still not known when the new 550 will officially be unveiled on the market - "Now? Three years from now? Six or seven?" - but the good news is that it will come.
The new baby Boxster (550) will be powered by a mid-mounted, turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that will deliver around 200 HP. This engine will be mated to a dual-clutch seven speed transmission. Porsche will also offer an S version that will be powered by a 2.5 liter flat four turbo engine that delivers a total of 360 HP and 350 lb-ft.
When it does go on sale, the new Porsche Baby Boxster will be priced about $10,000 below the current Boxster.
