Default rendering of 2011 boxster

With the first generation Porsche Boxster introduced in 1996 and second generation under the 987 platform designation in 2004, the third generation Boxster is due for launch in 2010 as a 2011 model. This time-line coincides with the recent announcement by Valmet Automotive Oy and Porsche AG to extend Boxster production in Finland until 2011.
Since the changes between the first and second generations were a modest warm-over, although Porsche claims only 20% of components were shared, the third generation is expected to be all-new with a more dramatic design while maintaining its core Boxster identity. Judging by the rendered interpretation above by Lars Saeltzer, the third generation Boxster will resemble Porsche's discontinued Carrera GT V10 supercar. We certainly hope so!

the car looks great like pointed out by my friends here it has taken inspiration from the R8 and the carrera gt. the car none the less very good and definately has a more powerfull look to it. four years more for this car to release, is a bit too much they should hurry up with the production. i am not much of a boxster fan but would definately look forward for this one.

This is just a rendering right. I dont think this is what the new boxter will look like.
