New redesigned Boxster in 2004!

It is looking more and more official... the rumours are getting stronger... the latest "911 and Porsche World" magazine (it's a UK magazine, more reliable rumour info than U.S. car mags) reports that BOTH the new 911 (997) AND new Boxster (987) will be revealed in 2004. Most likely at the Paris auto show in September.

So hold off on buying an 03 or even 04 Boxster! It will be "obsolete" in less than 12 months! With customers complaining of measly 8HP upgrades and with the competition pumping out more HP, I think we will be pleasantly surprised with the new Boxster's HP. Also I am almost certain Porsche will address the 'S' tranny issue, and the 'S' will have a tranny with different gear ratios optimised specifically for the 'S' than its big brother the 911, ... and if this is true I WILL buy the 'S'

They'd better not wait until September to announce it. I've been hoping to find out some news sometime in January or February.

Ahh man, I just got an 03 S. I hope it doesn't come out next year or i will kick myself. Well, probably not the new box s I bet will start at around $60 g's.

Why keeping chasing the next model?

I have owned six Porsches (own two now) and just don't understand this issue. My 1999 suits me just fine. I have driven an S and for me the extra money has never made it worth while for the switch. I am very happy with my car. In fact, I don't like most of the body changes to the front of the car. Just really use and enjoy your car. My 99 has 54,000 miles of smiles.
