    987 picture

    This weeks Auto Week(dutch) there's a picture of a 987 S in red, it is WONDERFUL! Looks are way better than on the first picture we saw of the car uncovered. (RC is right, don't worry, you'll like it!!)

    The picture was made when porsche was making a promo-movie for the car.

    If anyone has that picture, can you please make a scan.

    Re: 987 picture

    bump!

    Re: 987 picture

    Please.....has noebody this auto week...

    I am to far a way from dutch, if not i were driven to buy it....

    Re: 987 picture

    What about this link of Autoweeks website:
    Autoweek 987

    However, the car is still camouflaged.

    Nothing really new to see; maybe a better view on the side intakes and the front indicator lights.

    Re: 987 picture

    No, not the same picture as the decription of the one we are being teased with is red.

    C'MON - WHERE IS THE PICTURE SOMEONE !!

    Re: 987 picture

    its not on the autoweek dutch site.

    http://www.autoweek.nl/

    Re: 987 picture

    if this help ?


    Re: 987 picture

    No, no new pictures.

    I have been to the Netherlands last week, if someone could've told me early enough...

    Should be on the web pretty soon though!

    Yah, where in NRW do you live? Too far from the border...?

    Praetorianer, what's up with that name?

    Re: 987 picture

    ok we've established no one can get hold of the dutch autoweek, how about auto zeitung, on their cover is the new boxster.

    Right, this is the only picture available on the web which shows the Boxster REAL thing, no camoflaged or photoshopped car.

    Re: 987 picture

    Much nicer front end than the current boxster.

    The 987 is a beautiful car, no doubt about it. I already saw it WITHOUT any camoflage, including the interior (which is somehow different from the 997 interior, especially the speedo cluster). Porsche used the same "evolution" process on the 987 like they used on the 997. The only thing which makes me worry is the power figure of the new 987.

    But there still is a rumor of a 300-320 HP Boxster Turbo...
    And I think somebody even saw this engine somewhere...

    Why would they bother with the complexity and turbo lag of a 320hp Boxster Turbo engine, when the 3.4L or 3.6L 996 engine could be dropped right in without changing a thing with the same power figures???

    Re: 987 picture

    Doubt it, this motor is not strong enough to handle that kind of extra power as far as I know...right guys?

    Re: 987 picture

    Didn't Ruf drop a 996 engine into the Boxster for the 3600S?

    Re: 987 picture

    Both good point Grant/bostonmini. Its as simple as increasing the bore on the boxster engine and what you have as result is the M96.03 996 carrera engine in the boxster and that engine is already available, instead of putting a small turbo with the turbo lag, coping with the increase in engine's stress of an engine that its not designed to cope with forced induction, etc. And there is no problem with packaging since its mid-engined and they would need maybe only a 3.2l for those HP numbers. The M96.03 3.6l engine and M96.01 3.4l has already been used in the Boxster already with no problems, RUF does it in their RUF 3400 and 3600 for example.

    Re: 987 picture

    OK, I ran to the bookstore right after work today, and they had the most recent issue of dutch autoweek, but nothing in it about the new boxster.

    Re: 987 picture

    I am starting to sense a wind-up here!

    Re: 987 picture

    I belive the front end of the 987 is better looking than the 986 and 997. I am a current 986 owner and did not belive anything could look better but this 987 looks sharp.

    Re: 987 picture

    And what about these?

    Re: 987 picture

    Thanks for the pics

    Re: 987 picture

    It's a photoshop image.

    Re: 987 picture

    I agree, these all look photoshopped to me.

    Re: 987 picture

    Right... it's photoshopped. The lady in the car was also "used" for the red 997 phototshop picture in the german car magazine "Auto Zeitung"

    Re: 987 picture

    These are not from the dutch magazine eh?
