We found some new spy shots of the next-generation Porsche Boxster. Have a look!
The next Boxster spied here may show a car similar in appearance to the current model, but in fact, like the next 911, every panel in the Boxster will be new, as will the fabric roof. The new panels will be lighter, too, to keep weight to a minimum.
Next year’s Boxster will also be longer and wider than the current model to make room in the Porsche range for the new ‘baby Boxster’, which will share its platform with the VW BlueSport and Audi R4.
The next Boxster will also be a showcase for Porsche’s downsized petrol engines as it bids to cut its overall CO2 fleet emissions. Boxster model line director Hans-Jurgen Wohler told Autocar earlier this year that a four-cylinder engine and a turbocharged three-cylinder engine were under consideration for the car.
“A Boxster with a four-cylinder engine, or maybe even a three-cylinder turbo, could produce between 180bhp and 200bhp and emit just 180g/km of CO2,” said Wohler. “Given the Boxster’s history – that it started with a 200bhp, 2.5-litre engine – I think this is possibly something that customers could accept.
