    Boxster Coupe

    Anyone heard anything about the proposed Boxster coupe. I heard it was testing on the 'Ring last week . . . dressed up to look like a 911 Carrera!

    It looks darn close to 997 in disguise to me. But given the mid-engine advantage and more HP this new Boxster could win a lot of 911 owners towards itself.

    Re: here is the boxster coupé...

    Ron, there's a good chance this thing is gussied up with that 997-Turbo-like treatment just to disguise it. Looking the rear shots in the article, you notice the rear window is smaller (and tinted), so it's not exactly the same as the 997 Turbo pics. I'd imagine the huge side intakes are just covering the real body underneath.

    Could you imagine the backlash from Carrera diehards if this were not the case?

    Re: here is the boxster coupé...

    No doubt. This car is, in fact, in a heavy disguise but what I was saying is: given the longer wheelbase and lighter weight and more HP it could be a nice car to own.

    I'm sure it'll never get close to a 911 but a very capable mini 911 wanna be

    Ron, try to look at both pictures very carefully and then try to look "through" the camouflage.
    I know this is difficult but if you look at both pictures very carefully, you can see where the camouflage begins, where it ends and where it is applied.
    I'd say that the 987 will look much more different to the 997 than the current 986 does vs. the 996.
