Finally almost final prototypes of the next generation boxter which will try seduce people away from the new Z4 and the mind blowing new SLK from mercedes...
Can porsche beat them? tell it urself.....

The new Boxter does resemble the 911 even more now. I never liked the current Boxter atleast in the hard top form. Lets see how it does against the Z4 and SLK

guess its just a mix and match of 911 turbo's lower front-end with the carrera gt's lights and tail lamps. hell, it does look a bit mr2-ish. what happens with small sportscars and sedans is that with the passage of time, they get heavier and more complex.....finally ending in a bloated and expensive package which defeats the original purpose they were created for. i guess the boxster and the like shud stick to the original miata's concept of a small, simple and fun-to-drive sportscar.
