      The next-generation Porsche Boxster will get a longer wheelbase and measure nearly 173 inches long (4394.2mm) overall, British magazine Autocar says on its Web site.

      Why is the Boxster growing? To create room at the bottom of the Porsche lineup for a new two-seat model based on the Volkswagen BlueSport concept shown at the Detroit auto show in 2009, the report says. The current Boxster is 4342mm long.

      VW needs Porsche and Audi to sell versions of the BlueSport, along with a VW version, to make the project financially viable.

      Oh bluesport, you keep taunting me, like a US bound Polo or Duke Nukem 3D or Starcra- oh wait...

      I know we will never really get to enjoy your teutonic styling, magnificently textured soft plastics, or joyful turboed 4. Please come, you siren of Saxony. I wouldn't even mind if your window regulators were faulty.
