well... if you don't already have the US spec lighter/recepticle (narrower & deeper to hold plugs better)... just order the upgrade kit from Sunset Porsche. Should be < $25. Might be your only way to order a new light to being with...

Now, if you lived on the other coast, I'd say order from Suncoast but w/ Sunset in your backyard, you cannot go wrong.

Here's a link to the item on Suncoast's site

Good luck

Mine was also missing and went to the parts place and bought a cheapy to fill the hole. Learned that the Boxster lighter is not the standard size. Found a nice replacement on eBay that is on it's way. Hopefully this fits better. If not, I will go with the kit mentioned above.

Sunset was cheap

I bought mine from Sunset for around $15 bucks.

Radio shack has replacements. I put in a extra power point in black on drivers side of radio.

If you don't need a lighter the power point was $7.

Do I need to remove the dash to replace the lighter/power point socket?

no, the panel that the lighter is in will pop off. Start under panel with a flat head screw driver (wrapped in cloth) start prying off and working up. It is held on in middle by a post recessed in a hole. (rough explanation but you will see once it is out).

That should give you enough room to work if not then radio will need to be removed.

I was in process of radio swap and seen need for second power point since this is my portable office. I added it then and was simple.
