    Autocar article on Boxster Coupe

    Some info from the Autocar article...

    Nothing new really, except they say the 987 may not get any different engine than
    the existing ones (2.7/3.2), but again, everyone is speculating now...




    Re: Autocar article on Boxster Coupe

    I wish you guys would post smaller picture files.

    Regarding the Boxster: wouldn't make much sense to build a completely new car, design it completely new, develop it completely new and then use the old engines.
    The new engines will be definetely based on the old ones but I bet that they won't have many parts in common.

    I already saw some preliminary data for the new Boxster generation but I can't pass this information (please NO requests!) because it would unveil my source.
    Only one thing: surprise, surprise.

    Re: Autocar article on Boxster Coupe

    RC, you always have good information. Too bad you can't share...

    I will be interested to see how they further differentiate the 987 from the 997...

    Regarding picture sizes, these load fast here the US with a broadband connection and are on a high speed provider, but those IP packets take a long time to get from Germany to the USA.

    Well, the problem isn't loading speed (I have a 2.3 Mbit DSL line ) but the fact that the page gets "out of line", frankly speaking.
    But anyway, thanks for posting the article, very very interesting.

    Regarding the 987 and 997 one little hint (and I'll stop here!):
    the 987 will look a little bit more stylish and the 997 will look more classic. Satisfied?

    Do you mean the Boxster Coupe CS?

    Re: Autocar article on Boxster Coupe

    Hey RC, will it look stylish like this?

    Re: Autocar article on Boxster Coupe

    This is strictly my own hypothesis:

    Since Porsche already, officially or unofficially, has announced the following cars:

    Turbo Cab., C4 S Cab. GT3, GT3 RS, Cayenne (6 cyl.), '04 GT2, Carrera GT, and 40th Anniversary.

    The all new Boxster sneak peek could be their surprise at the IAA.

    Would make sense, Ron but I doubt it.
    As soon as they would announce a new Boxster, the Boxster would stay unsold in show rooms until the next model comes out (unless dealers are willing to accord substantial rebates ).
    The IAA 2003 is next month and there is a lot of time until summer next year, Porsche would cut their own 2003/2004 Boxster sales by doing that.
    This is the problem with expensive cars: people want to be sure to drive the latest model if they buy it new, model changes are always a problem.
