It’s not to early to start taking a look at an all-new Porsche Boxster for 2011. Although the 2009 Boxster has barely broken cover, it’s just a refreshening of the current car. So the next full leap forward for the Porsche roadster is just around the corner.
Latest spy shots reveal that the next Boxster (code 988) will be wider than the outgoing model and will share some of its interior design and pieces with the upcoming Panamera. Rumors have also suggested the front of the 2011 car may be changed substantially due to pedestrian crash standards that are going in effect in Europe.
The new mid-engined car may be offered for the first time with a four cylinder engine. Also available should be the direct injection six-cylinder engines from the 2009 Boxster. The six-cylinder 2011 car’s performance should still be an improvement over its predecessor because Porsche is focusing its engineering resources on reducing the Boxster’s weight.
