also, from Popular Mechanic mag:

"2003 Porsche Boxster Turbo
We've driven the new Porsche 911 Turbo and the Boxster S. Now we find out about the Boxster Turbo. The most striking difference is the enormous air intakes for the larger radiators in the airdam. The Boxster S uses a 3.2-liter 252-hp version of the 911's flat Six. Purportedly, the Boxster Turbo will add twin turbos to a 2.7-liter powerplant. So, with the 3.4-liter 911 engine rated at 296 hp, we assume the Boxster Turbo's output to be between that and the 911 Turbo's 420 hp—we'd say around 325. Like the Boxster S, the Turbo should share the 911's larger wheels and brakes. The ceramic-matrix brakes (around $7500!), soon to be available as an option on the 911 Turbo and 911, will probably be available as well. No date is set for the Boxster Turbo's introduction, but a facelift of the regular Boxster is coming this fall. "

Question Looks a lot like

Looks a lot like the original prototype for the Boxster doesn't it?


In fact it is the exact same picture. Are you sure this is real?

P.S. Your link does not work for the article.
