This is the third Boxster model from Porsche and it will make its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, December 2, 2009. Like its sister Boxters, this Porsche convertible shares the same mid-engine roadster concept and features a 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine with Direct Fuel Injection upfront of the rear axle.

This new Porsche convertible is available for sale on Febuary 2010 starting at an inexpensive price, for a cool sportscar: $61,200.
