Photo of "Baby Boxster"

Hi,

not sure if that has been posted before but I found a picture of the 4-cyl "Baby Boxster" in a German car magazine. The car which will be based on VW "Blue Sport" platform and is planned for 2013, it is planned that the same platform will also be used for a Baby-Audi-TT.

Opinions please

Wasn't this project put on hold indefinitely or scrapped altogether? VW is going ahead with the BlueSport Roadster, but with VW being Porsche's new boss I'm not sure what the new plans for the baby Boxster will be.

Unless this is new news and I have outdated information. I hope they build this car, looks nice.

I believe that is just one of the old artist renditions. I thought it was going to look like a 356.

At least the body is impact and scratch resistant with a diaper proof seating.

Yeah, I thought this was scrapped too. a bit disappointed. A baby boxster would have been sweet.
