The next generation Boxster will feature center-mounted exhaust pipes like the current Boxster and restyled side mirrors. Take a look at the Panamera and you’ll be able to see the general idea for the exterior of the Boxster. The Boxster may take the center stack feature from the Panamera as well.
Under the hood the Boxster will use a slightly revised version of the 310-HP 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine, but rumors suggest that it might receive an advanced four-cylinder engine making about as much horsepower as the current 2.9-liter six (255). This new engine is rumored to debut in the new base-level Boxster. And like the 918 SPyder, the new Boxtser may also receive a hybrid version.
The 2012 Porsche Boxster will be built on a platform that is around 173 inches longer than the current one. This lengthening is vital to the lineup if Porsche wants to be able to squeeze in the future baby Boxster .
