    Potential Boxter Coupe Photo?

    After reading RC's message about the Boxter Coupe "not being a coupe" but a possible retractable hardtop, I couldn't resist posting this find. Thanks to GermanCarFans.com for the photo.

    Re: Potential Boxter Coupe Photo?

    I'm not sure what this picture has to do with the Boxster Coupe (or whatever the name will be)???
    I understand the message (although I do only because nberry and others did a similar thing regarding the 997 and the Beetle) but if you want to jump into nberry's boots, you'll have a difficult time. He's far ahead of you.

    But the funny part is actually: the Beetle and the 911 have common grounds, this is no secret. But I'm talking about the early cars in the 50's and not now.
    Put a Beetle next to a 997 and there is no similarity whatsoever, although it might look differently in pictures.
    Same applies to the Boxster. So posting this picture might be funny up to some point but only because there has been so much talking in the past regarding the Beetle and 997 design. And it is very interesting that people who don't have a clue about the 997 and the 911's "heritage", like my wife, her friends or people on the street, don't see ANY similarity between the 911 design and the Beetle.

    Maybe comparing the Beetle with the 911 or Boxster is just that typical mass paranoia phenomenon which comes up from time to time on the internet...

    DAAYUM! Thats one mofo'ing ugly piece of design.
    What are they...smoking hair at Volkswagen now?

    :-)

    Re: Potential Boxter Coupe Photo?

    I actually quite like it - sort of a modern interpretation of the ZZTop hotrod...

    Re: Potential Boxter Coupe Photo?

    Only problem is it looks like its melted..??

    Re: Potential Boxter Coupe Photo?

    RC,

    No harm intended. Just thought it was a bit funny.

    Don't worry, I enjoyed the picture...especially because I never saw it. I'm sorry if my English sometimes indicates a certain "tone of disagreement" which I actually didn't mean. My native language isn't English, so please have mercy with me.

    Re: Boxter Coupe Photo?

    Whatever it ends up looking like, I bet it is positioned above the soft top Boxster.

    My guess is that the "standard" Boxster coupe will
    have the S engine with a pricier versions having
    25bhp more, and that both version of the coupe will
    initially offer greater handling and breaking ability
    than the convertibles, hence the higher asking price.

    A Boxster coupe at 10-12k less than a std 997 could
    capture a lot of "almost" 911 customers or be a sales
    handgrenade. I think Porsche will gamble on it being a
    new money winner.

    Re: Boxter Coupe Photo?

    RC,

    I'm fine with your comments. No offense taken.

    I must say, my German isn't anywhere close to your English writing skills.

    I will try to keep my posts more on-topic though.
