2010 Boxster on the cover of Road and Track...


Recommended Posts

So that is it for coverage in the Road and Track, just a picture on the front!?

Any other information on the web, pictures, specs etc?

This may be the one I start saving for! :D

I don't give the article any credibility. I was going to buy the mag then realised how misinformed they are about the Boxster.

"All that being said, there is no doubt the Boxster - which has been on the market with virtually the same clothes since 1997 (other than a minor freshening in 2005, in which Porsche reclassified the Boxster from its original 986 designation to the 987) is due for a redesign. We believe the new Boxster could be launched as early as 2009 for the 2010 model year. The car should see the first significant changes to its bodywork, though it will remain quite decidedly a Boxster throughout."

Well duh.. the 987 was a significant change to the 986 while retaining its appearance to the uninitiated. New body panels, roof, interior, engine, suspension, brakes, wider track are hardly minor freshening! Sounds like the author couldn't be bothered to do the research, so it makes me think their opinion is completely unreliable. BTW I think the "photo" is a computer generated graphic.

You may well be correct with errors like that, I was hoping for some substantiated information but I guess that it is too early for that...

The idea of a direct injected 3.x liter engine, more standard features including LED front and rear running lights make me wish that some of it is true.

Maybe all they needed was a sexy profile for the cover!
