Rumors about an entry-level version of the Porsche Boxster are not new and it appears that they will become reality. Although the model wasn’t officially introduced, Porsche Belgium website is already showing the vehicle together with specs, price and photos.

What’s more interesting is that the vehicle doesn’t get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and comes with a detuned version of the current 2.7-liter flat-six engine used by the standard model.

As we said, the engine was detuned from 265 hp (195 kW) to just 211 hp (155 kW) and 280 Nm of torque. When equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.4 seconds, while top speed is 245 km/h or 152 mph.

Urban fuel consumption is 11.8 l/100 km while outside the city the vehicle needs just 6.4 liters of fuel to travel for 100 km, with CO2 emissions of 195 g/km.

When using the PDK transmission, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and in 6.1 seconds in Sport+ mode, while top speed is 243 km/h or 151 mph.

In Belgium the model using the six-speed transmission costs 52,030 euros while the PDK-equipped model is priced at 55,150 euros.
