2013 Porsche Spyder first pics

CarAdvice has today received two renderings of what we believe to be a very near representation of the Volkswagen BlueSport Concept based 2013 Porsche Spyder.

Rumoured to share many of its components with the Audi R2, the much loved Spyder will return to roads boasting a “reputation for unrivalled driving dynamics, but in a much lighter, fuel efficient and affordable package than any model in recent memory.”

With a folding canvas roof like that of the current Boxster, the Spyder will also be significantly smaller than the current entry-level Porsche.

Power is expected to come from a tuned version of VW’s four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0 TFSI engine (think Golf GTI) but with a slightly more exciting 210kW.
