2011 Porsche Boxster Spied on Nurburgring

New spy shots of the 2011 Porsche Boxster made their way to WCF headquarters today.  Although it is just ten months since the debut of the current Boxster Facelift, the Stuttgart-based automaker looks like it is well into development of the new vehicle.

Spied on the 'Ring, the Boxster is still showing off a cloth roof, and we get another look at the rear LED light clusters.  Beyond that, it looks evident that the front end is bulging and somewhat elongated, but not massively.  All around the car, it is more of the same: same spoiler, same third brake light, same sidesills, same vents, etc.  Instead, we expect there to be some solid differences to the mechanics, and possibly weight reductions, instead of a radical new design.  After all, the old design just came out.

Nonetheless, look for the 2011 Porsche Boxster to have a refined front and rear fascia as well as a new rear light cluster.  Something beyond mechanics will be needed to entice potential customers.  Hopefully, Porsche will finish with the mule, and begin testing the production prototype.  We'll bring you any new shots as soon as they appear.

Update: Spy video added 1st Spetember 2009

Even though it probably won't change drastically in design, this is a test mule, with current car's body panel (or lookalike ones).

Looks like it has finally got a new chasis since 1996.

What is with this lower and wider theme Porsche are doing? One day they are going to realise they made a pancake on wheels.

Hope this car becomes more masculine than it is now, otherwise don't really see this car doing well against the likes of Z4, SLK or the 370Z convertible.
