Next-generation Porsche Boxster coming to Geneva

Article by Christian A., on January 29, 2010

These are the latest photos of the new Porsche Boxster -- the cleanest and most economical Porsche available -- that were captured while testing. Clearly shown is the car's remarkable aerodynamic sculpting.

Specifically, the right-hand door is sporting a fin, which is being used to channel more air towards the side-mounted intakes. Lighter weight materials were used; every panel is said to be new.

The car also has revised engines, making it more economical. Reports suggest that a 200bhp, sub 200g/km of CO2 four-cylinder engine could be available on a new entry-level model.

The photos also suggest that the car is slightly longer and wider than the current model. Obviously, more room will be available for the occupants and the increased size should help high-speed stability.

There are speculations that the company is planning to fit a new, smaller model into the Porsche range at a later date, possibly based on the VW BlueSport concept. Pedestrian crash protection regulations will also have a bearing on the car's design, with the front end being tweaked as a result.

The new Porsche Boxster is expected to be officially unveiled next spring, at the Geneva Motor Show. It goes on sale in late 2010 or early 2011.
