    R4 to share development with next Boxster/Cayman

    According to tomorrow's edition of German Autobild, Porsche is working on a baby Cayenne, based on the upcoming Audi Q5 and touted to be named Porsche Roxster. The name has already been copyrighted by Porsche.

    As an exchange it's also said that the rumored Audi R4 (starting possibly 2010), another sports car from Audi, is inheriting some technology from the next generation Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster which shall arrive 2012.

    (end of quote)

    Hmm. Porsche purists have been bashing the R8 (no offence, here) but I wonder, what can be said about the mid-engined R4 as it will be the next Boxster/Cayman's sister car? Styling? ;P

    Re: R4 to share development with next Boxster/Cayman

    The baby Cayenne is also the VW Tiguan and the Audi Q5.

    So, are two Cayennes better than one?

    And likely the 4 door Panamera will spawn a 2dr nuevo 928 coupe variant as well.

    And there is rumor of development of a small rwd sedan to be fight the BMW 3 series for sales volume.

    I think Peich wants to crush the Quandt families BMW world!

    Well, Porsche purists are already bashing the Boxster/Cayman, so what is going to change ?

    Re: R4 to share development with next Boxster/Cayman

    Yes, Porsches are no longer exclusive. Having said that, I would love to get a Porsche Roxster!

    Probably trying to do what BMW never managed, compete with Mercedes through the whole price range.

    Roxster sounds like a very weird and confusing name to me, maybe they just registered it to avoid "the Kia Roxster" or some other cheap car playing on the likeness of its name to the boxster

    Porsche's denial (regarding both Baby Cayenne and R4 inheriting 987 components) came promptly - even before AB's latest issue arrived at the newsstands

    Re: R4 to share development with next Boxster/Cayman

    Nothing is as frustrating as magazines peddling pure speculation (as if it were reliable) in order to boost circulation...it devalues the credibility of those magazines/newspapers...

    Re: R4 to share development with next Boxster/Cayman

    I would worry about the name Roxster...car companies copyright names all the time just to throw journies of the scent!

    They should've copyrighted the "Coxster". That would give the press something to talk about.

    "The new 'Coxster', as it is called, is the shortest member of the family, but very stiff and small enough to fit into tighter spots."

    Thats why the next car I'm getting probably wont be a Porsche, even though I'm one of their biggest fans.
    Theyr selling their soul to make more pfofits and that to
    me is unforgivable.
    Someone should give Mr. Wiedekin(?spelling?) a ass-wipping
