China Unveils Boxster Prototype

Autoweek is going to publish this spy pic of the 2006, 1 calf powered, high torque coupe in response to the growing need for luxury sport coupes in China.

Selling points:
- Comes with driver, who has excellent visability just behind the calf. Should the calf relieve himself, no fertilizer will be overlooked for others to find and use.
- All emissions can be used for drinking or fertilizer. The most environmentally friendly vehicle of its kind.
- Uses a wide variety of fuel, easily found on the side of the road. Never get stranded again!
- Room for ten inside the passenger compartment if calf is fully fed and rested and passengers are of average weight and size.

Now here's a good idea for this new thread... what selling points would you add for the marketing brochures and TV commercials?

So that would be base model with 1 horsepower? Wait, that's not a horse! At any rate, I'll wait for the '06 convertible with twice the donkeypower.

I like it! It's retro, but not too much, yet has a fresh updated look. And its got a glass rear window, which is something mine doesn't have.
Bet it would really look smooth with a set of the bizarre tail light kits recently posted
Have a good Fourth of July, & be safe on the highways.

This is clearly the 'S' trim, as indicated by the centrally located air intake below the front fascia (although the space seems to be occupied...by a man) and the use of a red-coated Guernsey instead of the traditional black and white Holstein-Friersian.

From the press report:

The production model will replace the ambers shown here with euro-spec clear corners and 190 inch rims to fill the mammoth wheel-wells and alleviate the nose-dive when breaking, that's been characteristic of the test model.

funny but China is producing a roadster and they hired a big auto industry guy from Mazda to start selling them in America.
It like the Miata but is going to be sold new for $20K
