    Boxster(987) production...

    Boxster(987) production stops this summer to offer more capacity for the upcoming new 991.

    So if you want to order a Boxster(987) to your liking, you better hurry.

    The new Boxster is coming out mid 2012.

    You can pre-order now if you want to, at least at german dealers. Not officially of course but as soon as the car is in the order system... Smiley

    RC, noooooo, now you have opened up a new opportunity for bluelines.... 


    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    RC I assume this includes the Cayman as well as the Boxster Spyder?

    I don't know anything about the Cayman but all Boxster models are affected by this, so I suppose the Spyder too.

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

     A full year without Boxster?


    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    Ooh, good and bad news...

    The good: we're drawing closer and closer to the 991, so it's good to see that Porsche will open up more space at Zuffenhausen for it. More 991s = happy me [and lots of others, I'm sure].

    The bad: doesn't seem like too smart an idea to end 987 production this early; what if prospective customers want to place a custom order for one before the 981's introduction in 2012?

    RC: is the 991 already in dealer systems? Reps at Porsche Kuwait told me that they're taking tentative pre-orders for the car, but no other details are available as yet. Will Porsche unveil the car before the IAA or do we have to wait until September to see it?

    Cheers!

    I think the new Spyder will be exactly what I want, but not necessarily need Smiley

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    RC - u seem somewhat all knowing - any idea how long they will take orders for the 997.2 turbo coupes? i have one spec'd close to my liking but thinking of ordering exactly how i want it and then into 2nd year get the new Boxster. there is much less in the news on the 981, but the pic's i have seen are very interesting.

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    I've been told that the AWD models will be produced for another year. I don't know however if the Turbo is included but I'd say yes. Check with your dealer, he should have certain allocations for certain models.

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

     And the production from the Finland Valmet plant?


    Re: Boxster(987) production...

     And the production from the Finland Valmet plant?

    When the Valmet contract runs out this year,  Boxster assembly will be switched to the Magna Steyr plant in Graz Austria. Magna Steyr were chosen in 2008 to replace Valmet.

    thanks RC - i will talk to them about allocations. my hunch is that we will get another year out of the 997.2 Turbo although they could blow it off and only overlap the turbo S as it only has 1 tranny choice and generally a bit more uniform.

    Haven't we read here in the meantime that the contract that was initially to be awarded to Magna Steyr has been reallocated to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück after the latter was bought out by VW?

    You are most probably correct.

    This seems to be the latest development

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    Thanks RC..Makes sense given that dealers have significant inventories of 987. Should allow Porsche to clear out the inventory without offering significant incentives.

    Re: Boxster(987) production...

    I just got my 2011 Boxster S in February 2011 and during my extensive West Coast search,  there's not a lot of 2011 Boxster S' on dealers' lots - at least compared to previous years.  So, if you do want a 2011 Boxster S, yes, you should act soon.

    Good news is my 2 year lease will end a few months after the 981 should be in showrooms! :D
