2012 Porsche Boxster snapped totally undisguised

Our crafty spy photographer have managed to set lenses upon a completely undisguised 2012 Porsche Boxster S out and about in the light of day. With all of the vehicle's camouflage removed, we can clearly see the body lines of the new convertible. Though the familiar Porsche face hasn't gone anywhere, the side of the vehicle now wears a dramatic side strake and sizable air inlet positioned just forward of a set of equally bold wheel arches. Those openings are filled with massive, multi-spoke rollers. Toward the rear of the vehicle, we can clearly see a new integrated lip spoiler that spans... Read More

    Here's a chance to acquire a celebrity-owned vehicle, and this time at a discount instead of a premium.

    Video: Porsche Boxster S takes on 911 in possible patricidal throwdown
    1349481600

    In the 2013 Boxster, Porsche has created a supremely fun, supremely capable sports car. But is it good enough that it has negated the purpose of the 911? To address such a debate, Car and Driver has pitted the iconic 911 against the Boxster S in the latest edition of "Car and Driver: Abroad." The gestation of the Boxster is essentially encapsulated in ...

    Video: Porsche's legends can't wait to play with new Boxster on the track
    1347893100

    Porsche has gathered topless legends from its history, and one notorious hardtop, to show off some of the metal that inspired the 2013 Porsche Boxster. Unfortunately, they sat in the garage on the first day of filming a promo at the Barber Motorsports Park because an all-day rainstorm also decided to enjoy the track. On the second day the sky made nice, ...

    1338392700

    Seeking Porsche's Purest Sports Car In 1996 when Porsche only offered the 911 Carrera for sale, choosing its purest sports car was easy. But today, Porsche offers five different models and the answer is rather muddy. None of its high performance vehicles, from coupe to roadster and sedan to sport utility, are easily dismissed, as each is capable of ...

    Report: 2013 Porsche Boxster rated at 10.6/5.8L/100km
    1336575540

    If you put us in charge of Porsche Boxster development, we'd have demanded more power, less weight and improved fuel efficiency. We now know that the new 265-horsepower, 2.7-litre boxer six was capable of 10 more ponies than the outgoing model, and overall tonnage was slashed by 25 kilograms, so the base model is already two-thirds of the way toward our ...

    A Reminder To Drive After five days in Europe, I'm finally able to count the number of hours I've slept on both my hands and feet. I've been stuck in this sort of schmoozing fugue state for the past few days, part hapless journalist, part aimless wanderer. The Geneva Motor Show is over. Covered. Done. But my trip isn't even halfway through. There's one ...
