This mid-engined Boxster-on-the-cheap is planned for a late 2007 launch with four and six-cylinder engines. Besides the four/six configurations, few reliable details are out there floating around— fortunately, AutoWeek has their butterfly nets handy. The suspension will most likely use parts from the Golf and Polo models, and three specific powerplants stand out as candidates: a 2.0 liter 148-hp four-banger, a 2.0 liter turbocharged FSI quad-cyl, and a 3.6 liter, 280-hp V6. Transmission choices will be a standard six-speed manual or optional DSG with those funky paddle shifters and no clutch pedal. And, to wax aesthetic, if the Concept R even retains 50 percent of its gorgeous concept silhouette, it's going to be one ruthless heartbreaker.
