The Boxster is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and Porsche is marking the occasion by launching a Boxster 25 Edition, which features cues from the original Boxster concept.

The company is now taking a look back at the concept, which debuted at 1993 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The story starts two years earlier as development for the Boxster was already underway. The company decided to preview the model with a concept, so they tapped Grant Larson who was responsible for advance development in the Design department.

Larson says he was given “full freedom” in regards to design and noted “all drafts were produced as 2D drawings … not on a screen like today.” A number of sketches were created including some that bear little resemblance to the Boxster we know today.

The design was honed over the course of a year and Larson noted his boss, Harm Lagaaij, really pushed him to focus on “detailed forms.” In the end, the concept incorporated a number of cues from the 550 Spyder and 718 RS 60. Among them were a mid-engine layout, a short rear overhang and a center mounted exhaust.

Porsche originally planned to unveil the concept at the 1993 Geneva Motor Show, but its introduction was moved up a few months because the company didn’t “want to waste any time.” Furthermore as Larson noted, “Our focus with the roadster was on the US market, where Porsche was weak at the time, and where Mazda with its Miata and BMW with the Z1 were already present in the roadster segment.”

The reaction to the concept was overwhelming positive and this caused Porsche to rethink their plans for the production model. As Larson explained, “Shortly after the presentation in Detroit, we were instructed to stop series design development for the Boxster immediately. The instruction instead was: ‘Please build the concept exactly like that.’”

在不久之前受到外界高度期盼的新世代Sportage偽裝原型車才被海外狗仔給捕捉到讓人耳目一新的帥氣樣貌,其實另一款目前還未得知正式車名的Kia神秘電動跨界車款日前也同樣被神通廣大的海外間諜照小組給捕獲,而與它同行測試的還有當今全球最暢銷的人氣電動車Tesla Model 3。

事實上目前Kia旗下最為大眾所熟知的Niro EV以及 Soul EV兩款電動車產品都不是以特別為電動車款所開發的平台進行打造,不過隨著近年來車壇電動化趨勢興起,Kia也將比照同集團Hyundai,推出以電動車專屬E-GMP (ElectricGlobal Modular Platform) 平台為基礎打造的全新電動車作品。

根據海外媒體所掌握的資訊,目前正加緊腳步進行測試的Kia電動跨界車款,在造型設計方面將會以先前於2019年日內瓦車展所首演的概念作品Imagine by Kia Concept為藍本,而目前包覆厚重偽裝的C柱與車尾部份,預期將以深受時下消費者喜愛的Crossover Coupe樣貌呈現,整體車身尺碼比起較接近傳統轎車設定的Model 3似乎要略大一些。

在與預計今年初登場的Hyundai Ioniq 5同採E-GMP (ElectricGlobal Modular Platform) 平台的基礎下,這部神秘的Kia電動跨界車款也被預期將擁有上看500公里的續航能力以及在20分鐘內進行的快速充電技術,但比起 迫不及待想和大家見面的Ioniq 5,系出同源的神秘Kia電動跨界車款可能得等到2021年底、甚至2022年初才有機會揭開神秘面紗。

海外即將於 2 月發表新一代三菱 Outlander,日本媒體第二次捕獲測試車身影,於雪地進行測試的大改款 Outlander,似乎在暗示擁有不俗的四驅越野性能,順便告訴全球車迷,睽違已久的大改款就快來了。

從雪地路測觀察,新一代三菱 Outlander 仍保留四驅系統。

Mitsubishi 先前已釋出預告,將在明年 2 月率先於美國、加拿大和波多黎各等地進行發表,而日本以及其他亞洲市場則稍晚一點。動力配置上,將會採用與大改款 X-Trail 相同的 2.5 升四缸汽油引擎,能輸出 188 hp 最大馬力,淘汰掉原本的 2.4 升引擎,整體輸出功率提升 13% 之多,並擁有前輪驅動與全時四輪驅動選項。

因應其他歐洲市場能源政策,招牌的 PHEV 插電式混合動力也不會缺席,採用 2.4 升引擎配合電動馬達,最大續航里程將來到 430 英里(約 692 公里)。

海外媒體其實早已捕捉到無偽裝 Outlander。

事實上,新世代的 Outlander 先前無偽裝身影早已先行曝光,具備 Dynamic Shield 的設計語彙,採用分離式頭燈組,上方為細長的 LED 日行燈,下方則是類橢圓形的頭燈,下方更有獨特圓弧形燈組。整個外型和 Engelberg Tourer 概念車幾乎相同。
