Porsche has already said the 718 Boxster and Cayman are going electric.

Now a prototype has been spotted out on the road.


Autoblog has the shots, which are claimed to have captured the car on a test circuit. It looks to be an early-stage prototype.

We'll second AB in noting that, as per usual with prototypes, camouflage is being to good use to disguise the looks, though the car is still clearly a Boxster.

The spy shots do seem to show that the Boxster will gain in both wheelbase and overall length, and the rear taillight appears to be a full-width unit. There's a center exhaust cutout that is almost certainly a fake-out to try to get observers to think they aren't seeing an EV. Other observable details include wide tires -- there were actually two testers spied, and one appeared to have summer tires and the other winter -- and large, drilled brake rotors.

Other specs remain a mystery at this time.
