Peugeot is preparing the replacement of the current 307 dubbed 308. This, however, will not be just one successor, but a true full all new model range.
The first in line for launch will be the new four door in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which will arrive in the dealerships in 2008. It is followed by a three door, station wagon, coupe-convertible in 2009 and finally – as a surprise – a so-called 3008. This one is – like Peugeot’s 1007– another van derivative from the 308 with a large rear door.
The first photo is showing a computer image of how the 3008 could look like upon its release. The second photo is a first long lens shot of a heavily disguised prototype of the 3008 during a secret test drive.
The third and fourth photos are showing a latest prototype of the four door 308 model. Power will come from a 2.2 four cylinder turbodiesel engine delivering 170 HP as well as the new generation 1.6 litre petrol engine delivering between 75 and 170 HP. It was developed in co-operation with BMW. A particularly sporty RC version performing 210 HP is to follow some time later.
