Porsche set to revive the 550 Spyder with VW/Audi shared platform roadster
Remember that entry level Audi R4 we reported was coming? Well, the Porsche version of the same platform is set to revive the 550 Spyder nameplate. Autoexpress reports the motor will be a turbocharged 1.6 liter four cylinder boxer motor with 200 horsepower or so going through a PDK gearbox. Porsche is aiming for around a 2600 pound curb weight which should make the car a ton of fun to toss around. This will slot in below the Boxster which will be allowed to move more upscale.

In this class Miata is the king, with a few thousand dollars spend on mods that car will fly.
