Folks over at Porsche are pretty confident about the financial crisis but extra insurance is always welcomed. That’s why they are planning to release on the market a cheaper version of the already famous Boxster.

The Auto Motor & Sport website wrote that Porsche is thinking about using the Audi TTS engine. This powerful 2.0-liter baby can deliver 272 hp and 258 lb-ft. In other words, this new Boxster will bring 17hp and 45 lb-ft of torque into the game.

The most amazing thing about this piece of news is that the price for this vehicle will drop down from €46,500 ($64,000) to €40,000 ($55,000).

It’s true, the TTS engine is not a boxer engine but even so, this seems to be a pretty nice idea and we can’t wait to see it on the streets.
