Whether you love or hate the changes revealed in the new 2013 Porsche Boxster, expect much of what you see to migrate over to the next-gen Cayman. In typical Porsche fashion, the new coupe will be an evolutionary transformation, especially from the side, which, aside from the door-mounted side-view mirror, appears identical to the current-gen model. The front end should get the 2013 Boxster’s more narrow headlights, while the tail is expected to get the same dramatic spoiler and taillight design.
The folks at Motor Trend even managed to snap a photo of the interior, which, not surprisingly, mirrors the Boxster’s. Also expected to migrate from its drop-top sibling are its new mechanical bits including the base model’s 2.7-liter, flat-six rated at 265 hp and the S model’s 3.4-liter, 315-hp mill. Both will be available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Cayman will also grow a bit with a longer wheelbase and wider track, but we expect the curb weight to drop a bit thanks to added use of lightweight aluminum in the chassis.
With the 2013 Boxster expected to go on sale later this year, the Cayman should follow soon after. As always, stay tuned for more details and head over to Motor Trend for more photos.
