Porsche unveils new Boxster, seven other new models expected by 2013
Friday 06 November 2009
German automaker Porsche is hitting the ground running after its recent sale to compatriot Volkswagen by releasing the first images of its 2011 Boxster Spyder on November 5, just one of many new Porsches scheduled in the next few years.
The 2011 Spyder, the lightest Porsche ever, has been redesigned with added power and is set to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, opening December 2. Worldwide sales commence February 2010 with a base price of around €50,000 for the latest edition of the Boxster line.
The iconic sports car manufacturer has big plans for the future as seven new models are expected to debut by 2013, according to the weekly UK magazine Autocar.
The Panamera line, consisting of Porsche's first sedan, was unveiled in Shanghai last April with a base price of nearly €80,000. But a Panamera for less well-heeled Porsche enthusiasts, thanks to a less-powerful V6 engine, is expected to be the first new arrival, with petrol and diesel models going on sale in late 2010.
A redesigned Cayenne, the company's first SUV, will also debut next year and is expected to feature more of the lush and aerodynamic curves which made Porsche famous.
Porsche's first hybrid models are expected to debut in 2011, with the enivronmentally-friendly technology going in the Cayenne and Panamera, Porsche's only four-door vehicles.
A redesign of Porsche's flagship model, the 911, is due to arrive in 2012 with all the acclaim due one of the world's great sports car lines. Every panel on the 911 coupe and cabrio will be remodelled but don't expect too great a deviation from such a classic.
A Rockster CUV, smaller than the Cayenne but bigger than the Panamera, is scheduled in 2013. The Rockster could allow the Cayenne to add even more luxury in an attempt to grab the upscale SUV market from models like the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and BMW X6.
Also in 2013, Porsche is expected to revive their ultra-luxe 928 model, in cabrio and coupe form, which would compete with the low-end models from Maserati, Aston-Martin and other less luxury-oriented carmakers.
