A spy shot of an almost undisguised Porsche Boxster GTS has appeared online, months ahead of its official debut at the Beijing motor show in April.
The picture, which was first published on automotive website Worldcarfans, follows recent winter testing images of the car and its Cayman sister.
This latest image shows what appears to be a near-finished version of the GTS, complete with the 'correct' 20-inch wheels from the 911 Carrera S and new front-end styling.
GTS versions of both the Porsche Cayman and Boxster, which will get performance upgrades in addition to cosmetic ones, are set to go on sale in April following their Beijing motor show debuts. Details of the cars were leaked last year from an American dealer conference.
Both new versions get a 15bhp power increase over the standard 3.4-litre S variant, meaning the Boxster GTS will have 326bhp on offer, while the Cayman GTS gets 335bhp.
The cars gain distinctive new bumper designs at the front and rear, a new sports exhaust, and the aforementioned 20-inch wheels borrowed from the 911 Carrera S. The Cayman GTS also gets new LED daytime running lights.
A manual gearbox will come as standard, but a PDK transmission will be available as an option. Reports suggest that Porsche's Active Suspension Management system will be standard.
In the UK, the GTS is expected to command a price increase of around £4000 over the S version. That means the Boxster GTS should start from around £50,000 and the Cayman GTS from close to £53,000.
