Hard to tell since there is no picture. Would be interesting to actually see one.

I'd like to see it too. I think it would look good on Silver or White Boxsters.

I don't see how they could incorporte the back-up lights into the bumper. I guess we have to wait until May.

I don't really mind the white/clear part so i don't think it looks much better. I like that my car is being used for examples. Maybe you should 'pimp my ride' on photoshop.

How 'bout some very inconspicuous white leds in the bumperettes for b/u lights? That would be cool.

Drburton- Pimp My Ride!!!

OK, Drburton, I hope you don't mind, but I photoshot your car today with a RUF engine conversion...how do you like it? The RUF 3.8 liter Boxster S conversion will yield you 365hp. Be carefull, and observe the new brake-in procedure.

I know...it is very subtle:

I keep flipping between the two images. I think the all red looks great - but then it also kind of reminds me of a 350Z (not good). I'd have to see it in real life to really say.

bmuss, love the photoshop engine swap. Too bad it isn't real - gotta like the 'sleeper' mods.

I don't know the answer to how the backup lights work, but those lenses are the ones from some special "550 edition" Boxster. I saw them on the Suncoast Porsche site recently.

Hmm.. so the choices are "red and white" or "red and pink", eh? I think I'll stick with what I've got.
