987 Boxster is here!

Recommended Posts

something looks really wrong with the fogs in the grill opening. It is as if they just forgot to put them in so they just glued (not literally) them into those openings. Very out of place.

And the interior is too busy (more specifically the center). Other than that no MAJOR changes that blow me away just like the 997. It is almost as if the 987 and 997 were released with slightly different lines, interior, and lights to satisfy the hunger for a new Boxster and 911 with something really great in the planning stages that we can look for in the years to come?

Everyone should look at the Porsche site for a complete view of the new Boxster, see the link noted above by Geoff. I agree that the the car would have been much better looking in front if the fog and turn signals were out of the grille area. They should be above the grille as on the new 997. But I can see why Porsche did it this way, they didn't want the new Boxster and the 997 to look the same from the front. So it looks different than the 997 but it is less than satisfactory, kind of like an add-on that they had to put somewhere. Another alternative would have been to continue to use the existing all-in-one light assembly, and have the two big air scoops on the front, like the 996 Turbo or the GT2 or GT3. Also, the diagonal body seam in front of the rear tail lights is not a clean look as in the earlier Boxsters. Notice that the roll bars seem a bit higher and thicker. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I hope that the new look is not as massive as on the BMW Z4. But the good stuff is more HP and ceramic composite brakes as an option on the "S". I wonder how much $ that will run. I guess my final conclusion is that my 2003 Boxster S looks at least as good as the new version. I'm glad I did not wait.
