The early models used rivets vs the later design which used clips.

From what I can tell, the spoiler cover (the pretty piece) basically blew off. LoL. So what's exposed is the lower portion of the spoiler cap. It also reads that the 97-02 had the plastic rivets, and the rivets returned for the 05+ installation.

Wonder if a 986 Cayman spoiler would fit on the 03-04 boxster boot? Hmmmm. Here's a picture of the cover and the mount that I found while digging through the net.

You are exactly right. The beauty piece is missing. It wouldn't just get blown off. It has to be removed (with some effort I might add). Find out if the owner still has it and the driver side rollbar mesh (these can get blown out.
