Default SCOOP: Third-Generation 2012 Porsche Boxster Caught Working Out

The next iteration of the 911 series, codenamed 991, isnít the only new model undergoing development by Porsche these days. The Stuttgart-based sports car maker is also busy testing a brand new generation of the Boxster, as these latest spy photos reveal. However, expect to see some styling influences from the Panamera at both ends of the car, as well as in the cabin. As you can see from the scoop pictures, the prototype model keeps the current versionís electrically operated cloth top. Despite the evolutionary design, itís all new under the skin as the 2012 Boxster will ride on a modified version of the new chassis underpinning the upcoming 991. Its wheelbase and overall length will both grow and as a result, improve passenger and luggage space. The larger dimensions will not lead to an increase in weight, with the new Boxster is expected to be marginally lighter than the current model. The engine range will include a newer version of Porscheís flat-six in both the standard and S models with improved performance as well as fuel economy figures, but weíve also heard that the German company is developing a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will eventually be offered in both the next Boxter and the Cayman's replacement. It remains to be seen if Porsche will choose the Frankfurt Motor Show in September or, as some sources suggest, the 2012 Detroit Motor Show next January for the world premiere of the third generation Boxster model.
