Welcome to the forum DJ!

Also, add a $1 to the pot. The simple answer is no 11" wheels will not fit your Boxster. The 11's are from a 911 and the combination of width and offset will not work on a 986.

If you do a search on offset, you'll find plenty of information about wheels (and this same question asked many times - hence the $1 to the pot). Your current wheels will have the offset stamped on them and you want to stay fairly close to that number when replacing the wheels with aftermarkets, unless you're willing to add spacers.

You did a wise thing by asking before buying, though. Porsche wheels are expensive and you don't want to make a mistake. Also, be careful of ads that claim their wheels will fit a boxster. Be sure you know what the offset is before hitting the 'add to cart' button. Boxster wheels have different offsets (esp in the rear) than 911s, so you need to be sure the wheels are for Boxsters.
