More like what the Porsche 718 Boxster would have looked like if it came out in the 1980s. Someone must have been curious because X-Tomi has recently released a rendering of a 718 Boxster with design elements from the 1980s.
The Boxster’s bumper and side skirts seems to have been blacked out or replaced with plastic parts. Closest Porsche design from the 1980s with a similar paint scheme is probably the 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo with the top half of the car painted one color and the bottom painted black.
Topping the odd bottom coverings are the rims. These days you’re more likely to see a set of alloy rims than the steel wheels found in the rendering. Actually looks very similar to most steel winter wheels without the hub cap. They may not be the best looking but if they’re anything like your winter rims, they’re designed to take a beating.
The interior may look exactly the same as the current 718 Boxster but if it was built in the 1980s, many of the cabin features we have today would have been left out. Maybe you would have to wind your windows in order to have them close or open and the infotainment system would be non-existent in cars back then. Aluminum interior accents would have been dropped for the cheaper plastic alternatives.
As for the engine, maybe the 1978 3.3 Liter turbocharged engine from the Porsche 930 with a power output of around 300 PS.
This is all purely hypothetical based on a rendering. So what does everyone think?
