Porsche using three electric Boxsters for testing

Porsche is rapidly ramping up its vehicle electrification program, ranging from the top-level plug-in hybrid 918 Spyder concept and the 911 GT3R Hybrid racer to the new Cayenne hybrid that has now entered production. But the latest addition to the electric drive program is a group of three experimental Boxsters that are all electric.

Porsche is keeping closed lips on these new Boxsters for now and no technical details have been released. The Boxster prototypes will be used to test the new electric drivetrain systems as well as see what infrastructure is required to facilitate them. It’s no secret that Porsche is interested in a production version of the 918 Spyder and is likely using these Boxsters to evaluate the battery systems, along with the motors and power electronics.
