    New Boxster?

    Is this it Part1

    Re: New Boxster?


    Another photoshop, I suspect. I don't believe that Porsche will put the turn indicators inside the air grill like that ... it looks sloppy.

    It'd better be a photoshop job 'cause if this is the real thing Porsche is off to a bad start, at least for the Boxster line.

    Don't worry. It is a photoshop job. Look I found the originals in my collection.

    Re: New Boxster?

    It is a photoshop job but VERY close to the real thing.

    And surprise, surprise, the Boxster isn't far away...

    9 months, ooohhh that is such a short amount of time!

    I assume still shortly after the 997 intro, right RC? Or has this changed again?

    Also, can we finally put to bed the Boxster Coupe? WW cited below current model range when he discussed the "other model", and I'd hate to see the sedan come there. That would be a huge disappointment.

    9 months?

    Re: New Boxster?

    9 months because reports are saying January 05'. 9 months excluding the one we are in now.

    1. It would be unusual for Porsche to launch a completely new model range at the beginning of a year but of course this can't be completely excluded.
    2. the new Boxster and Boxster Coupe will be shown to the public earlier than most people can imagine.

    Re: New Boxster?

    The anticipation I have for the Boxster coupe is overwhelming!

    How often is RC correct with his predictions? Because I've got a deposit down on a 987 Box and the wait is killing me.

    Well, ... you pay your money (in this case nothing for the info) and take your chances.

    My money is on RC.

    I feel flattered but PLEASE don't make your buying decisions based on what I post here or what other people post on this forum.
    I try to explain a little bit the rumored strategy behind the 987 "delay": the Boxster should have been renewed almost a year ago but Porsche did nothing. Why? There are speculations that Porsche wanted to concentrate on the Cayenne launch first because the Cayenne is actually a model they make a lot of profit with. The Boxster is rumored to make only 10% of Porsche's profit, so it isn't actually a very important model for Porsche, as sad as this might sound.
    Now add the strong Euro and the weak US Dollar, then add the economic situation in the most important Boxster market and the hope that it'll recover by 2005 and you'll have your answer why the 997 comes first and the Boxster afterwards or...it is still possible...at the same time.
    I give you one hint: if you happen to be in Paris, don't miss the Autoshow there this year.

    Perhaps if Porsche didn't let the model slip so badly, it would do better. MacPherson struts, a mere 168kw, the perception that it is the "Porsche with panties" and the cost of entry being what it is doesn't do the car any favours.

    I can't help but think of the irony - they let the model with probably the most potential drag out for years, and concentrate on building an SUV!

    It's just bizarre... Are we in the Twilight Zone?
