    • The new 2012 Porsche 981 Boxster pictures leaked before official reveal, looks spectacular

      You have to love the internet. Makes waiting for details in magazines or at shows seem outdated. Case and point, we already have pictures of the new 2012 981 Boxster before it is officially revealed at the Geneva auto show. And boy, does it look good. While the 911 continues to be held in the past styling wise due to Porsche purists the Boxster continues to evolve without constraint. The car looks much more aggressive than it did previously with excellent updates to the front and rear lights. The side intakes also give the car a new hint of aggression.

      Porsche, the car looks spectacular. All that we ask is that you do not hold it back to protect the 911. Let it finally be what it can be. If the Boxster looks this good we can bit wait to see what Porsche does with the Cayman.

        It has lines similar to a Carrera GT in my opinion, I like it.

        Not yet, but based on this it should be BADASS.

        I wish they would ditch the idea that the 911 has to be above the Boxster, the Boxster should be the hardcore, nimble little car the 911 used to be and the new 911 can be the more comfortable and luxurious car that the rich guys who buy them want it to be. My dad had a 997 Carrera S, his main complaint? Ride comfort because he has a bad back so for him a 991 would be a huge step forward. For me? No. I much prefer the 930 and 993 era 911s to the one we had and I would love a Boxster or Cayman that wasn't worried about stepping on the 911's toes in terms of outright performance.

        Why is there no Boxster/Cayman Turbo? A GT3-esque model would be out of this world.

        Preaching to the choir.

        A cayman with the gt3 motor and pdk would be... Well it would spell the emd of the 911's dominance in the porsche lineup for the best drivers/track car.

        Maybe I should have @Wild-Speed get on a rendering of the new Cayman?

        Looks awesome!! Especially from the side view. And much more aggressive than the current model! The regular Boxster seems to come with 265hp and the S with 315hp.
