    Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Guyzz...... Boxster S RS Spyder 303Bhp on the way

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Details of this car are coming out tomorrow I believe.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    any links?

    price?

    With only 8bhp more than the 2007 version, I'm sure its even more fun sportscar, cant wait to see pics !

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Yet ANOTHER pointless "special" edition.

    Will be amusing to see what "included" options are on it this time.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    any news update?????

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    8bhp extra hardly warrents and RS name does it!!!!

    Sounds like another porsche rip off...

    NOw if its a lighter version with an extra 8bhp that would be fantastic... never going to happen though!

    Well, if the car would really deserve a "RS 60" badge, it should have close to 400 hp, not 303 hp

    The original 718 RS 60 had 160 hp and a curb weight of 550 kg

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    A RS version should have a LSD as well! Come on !!!

    Sure, Jeannot - LSD, Shortshifter and PSE would be a must, but the list of the items the car should NOT have is actually much longer:

    no Satnav
    no Bose
    no CD changer
    no electr. seats,
    no PDC
    no auto-dim mirrors

    And instead of the strange things which come with the CaymanS limited Edition (briefcase, wristwatch ) the car should come with a helmet, raceshoes and racegloves

    Only a dream....

    Fully agree only a dream

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Is this a hoax, or is this for the U.K. Market. In the U.S. Porsche's 2008 Boxster L.E. comes in RS Orange, but without the power increase (stock 295 hp).

    It would not be hard to believe that Porsche is planning a couple more "special editions" before the next generation boxster arrives. Especially due to the slowing sales of Boxster/Cayman. Porsche Design Edition 1 Cayman implies there will be an edition 2?

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    I didn't get any more info today on the car unfortunately. I'll keep you posted as and when I do. As Moogle says it is highly likely that Porsche will do a run out model seeing as the DFI engined cars are due in production from September 08. Porsche did this with the 986 in it's final year with the 550 special edition.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Well, the 550 came at the end of the 986 lineup, the 987 is still waiting for a facelift, which will be around for a couple years before the completely next generation comes around.

    Thanks Isuk. I didn't think there was to be a fundamental change until model year 2011. Next year we may see DFI and there is also talk of introduction earlier in the year. It is needed as the sales seem to be dipping and they need something special to revive sales.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    A 303hp Boxster with a 30% LSD is coming and already the Party faithful are nervous! Party discipline is severely lacking!

    So you would NOT want Porsche to increase hp? or do you wish hp gains only for the plots of Nissanites?

    Or maybe since there has been no confirmation of red painted side sills, red stripes and red spoilers front and rear so you are sad!

    Those who do not accept the scientific theories and practices of Porsche marketing doctrine should be purged!

    Any trivial hp Porsche hands out should be appreciated by the people! Those who criticize it are guilty of being Marque Wreckers, Brand Sabotuers and False Adulators!

    I plead guilty Your Honour
    I hope that the appropriate punishment does not demand to drive a Tiptronic car for a year or so

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Party judgement is swift! Appropriate punishment for you requires 5 years driving a Tiptronic John Deere Lawn Mower at the Porsche plant in the East...

    The fact that you are NOT a Porsche "Vegetarian" ie, a owner who does not use all of the power his car has...has allowed the court to provide you with this very lenient sentence! Others will face the electric Fussmatten!

    Porsche discipline will be maintained!

    Mercy I should have asked a lawyer (maybe Nick ) before pleading guilty

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    club sport package anyone?

    ..I am sure he would easily negotiate for you a nice Ferrari sticker to put on the lawn mover hood
    Would make it less of a punishment

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    I'm still waiting on info but I hope it isn't just a paint and leather exercise with side graphics like these

    Nahh, Nick would do better than that. Didn't you know that Ferrari lawn mowers actually exist ?

    You may have a look here:

    Not sure about the colour though - is it Scuderia Red ?

    Well at least this factory car may help to keep the dream alive
    BTW perfect camouflage without the Porsche badge on the hood

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Looks like that car is also fitted with the GT3 race style seats. Interesting...... nice find Porsche-Jeck

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Great pic, one of the better shots I have seen of the '09 facelift ala Cayman in this iteration. As for the Boxster S RS, well we're waiting...

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    That isnt the clubsport package, the is simply the tequipment rollbar, not even the latest version.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    some test cars has rollbar

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    More news. 303 bhp confirmed. Car will come in GT silver with Carrera red leather and have 19" wheels (probably Sport Designs). First cars should be out next March. That's all I have at present.

    Re: Boxster S RS 60 Spyder

    Sounds Great, do you know if this will be sent to the U.S. as well?
