    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    MMmm interesting, most interesting!

    Would be very interested in a CS version, although shame to see it will cost more for less!!! If I remember rightly the old 968 CS was cheaper than the regular version??

    Should be a nice motor though, surely its gonna out handle the 911??? Lighter, better distribution of weight???

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    Very interesting indeed. As far as I can remember CS versions of any Porsche model were not cheaper than the regular version. The money Porsche saved on taking things out was quickly replaced by items such as uprated suspension, better chassis, slight engine mods, bigger wheels, etc.

    Does prove a point that I have held onto for a long time though......there will not be a 300HP Boxster anytime soon.

    No biggie for me, just bring on my 280HP S coupe at a reasonable price and I'll be waiting with cash in hand!

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    I think, the boxster coupe will come to end of next year.
    I also think, there will come a turbo version 2006.

    Believe me..., but don't tell anybody

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    I wonder what someone like Ruf or Gembella could do with this?

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    I have a letter of intention in for the Boxster S Coupe Club Sport should they ever make one.

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    According to an OPC (UK) coupe will be revealed at Detroit in January and will be launched in April 05.

    Right now I have autumn 2005 as an unofficial launch date. Detroit is the place for the 997 Carrera Cabriolet and 997 Carrera S Cabriolet.

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    I too have it on good authority that there will be a CS bersion of the 987 (from Porsche GB). He's even seen the technical sheet on it

    Re: Boxster Coupe CS?

    It all seems like a silly marketing scheme.

    Boxster CS? Well what trophys will those be racing for

    Will there be a factory 987 race car to do battle? If so against what? Other Boxsters at PCA autocrosses??

    I think its all a clever attempt to lure a certain age buyer who doesnt want a convertible and isnt comfortable with the 997 ownership thing. So Porsche tweaks the software, adds a modified PSE, stiffens the ride, deletes A/C and charges silly prices to ageing codgers who buy the Porsche romance but are too tired to do anything with it,
    but who find the model designations CS, GTS, RS etc, reminding them of their youth.

    Add the projected costs up for a Boxster coupe and it s CS option and you are up to 997 money with out the performance of a 997!

    I doubt if Porsche has any genuine sporting plans for any Boxster. Its another money pit for a customer segment they have identified through careful analysis of customer data.

    Arrrgh to software controls! Boxster buyers will get the dubious distinction of three types throttle response
    control options! Standard! Sport Chrono on/off! or CS ! Its a shame that all three are not standard, or that at least the CS version is the "sport" setting with sport chrono!

    Thats it!


    Of course a "Boxster GT3 RSR" would be a nice car... but some are not going to spend 100 kEur and more...
