    Spy Shots: 2012 Porsche Boxster

    With the arrival of the new Boxster Spyder in showrooms late last year, Porsche’s entry-level convertible range is now complete and due to be replaced by a brand new model over the coming year.

    The latest photos show the Boxster badly in need of a defrost cycle, but also revealing the new LED taillight design, which mimics those of the next 911.

    Development of the next-generation 2012 Porsche Boxster is well underway as the images and video of the prototype demonstrate. However, a rumor alleging that Porsche insiders are talking about a lightweight, turbocharged four-cylinder platform for the next-gen Boxster recently began making the rounds. The thought coincides with possible rumors of a revived 914 that could be co-branded by both VW and Porsche, which means the new Boxster could certainly be fitted with a highly charged four-banger. If that’s the case, we're sure Porsche will still offer a six-cylinder option for upper range models.

    Such a design premise might offer more room to launch a detuned entry-level Carrera also aimed at improving emissions ratings. Even the current six-cylinder Boxster and Cayman, the most efficient in Porsche's line, emit about 222 g/km of CO2--about 100 g/km more than the projected 2015 limits.

    Whatever Porsche has in store for the new car, we’ll have to wait until its expected arrival late this year to find out.

    I can't really see the differences in black very well. The headlights are smaller correct?

    It looks like there's camo around the headlights so it would be hard to judge the actual shape and size.
