New Boxster to be unwrapped
Porsche will have one world premiere and two European premieres at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
The new generation Boxster will be unveiled at the Porsche press conference on Tuesday.
For its European premieres, Porsche will present the Panamera GTS and 911 Carrera Cabriolet.
The technical highlight of the new Boxster is the considerably lower weight, thanks to the lightweight body and a completely revamped chassis.
The mid-engine roadster's comprehensive revamping is also apparent in its looks - the wheelbase has increased, the track is wider and the wheels are bigger.
In the process, Porsche has not just significantly enhanced the driving dynamics, but the new Boxsters are 15% more fuel-efficient as well. Depending on model, their fuel consumption is less than eight litres per 100 kilometres. Thanks to a styling makeover with shorter body overhangs, significantly forward-shifted windscreen, flatter silhouette and expressive edges, the roadster's road posture is more muscular.
The interior offers more space and the interior concept reflects the new Porsche outline with the raked centre console.
Porsche is unveiling the 911 Cabriolet in Europe right on cue for the open-air season.
Intelligent lightweight design, even featuring the use of magnesium in the hood, ensures less weight and more sportiness, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort.
The second European premiere is the Panamera GTS, the four-door car for the racing circuit.
This most sporty of all Panameras has a top speed of 288km/h and sprints to 100km/h in a 4.5 seconds.
It features more power, upgraded brakes and a tuned chassis.
