Cayman or Boxster

This guy pretty much converted his Boxster into a Cayman (less the top).

I actually kind of like it. The badging on the back definately needs to go, but otherwise not bad.

Hi,
Your link isn't working....let me rephrase that. Your link does work. Unforunately, the vehicle has been removed.

Hey Chills,
Looks like we posted simultaneously!

The entire car looks bad too me. Looks like an eBay sponsered Boxster.

Hmmm...the badges are definitely overkill! It's too busy for me, especially the interior....doesn't know whether it wants to be silver, black, or woodgrain..etc...

I am not liking the wood on the interior. It clashes with everything else. The badges are also a complete overkill but other than that I think it looks okay. Not my cup of tea and I get a bad feeling when I see the car but looks okay.

1. The wood clashes with the interior silver highlights.
2. Stock S bumpers look pretty good to me. I think if they came on the Cayman and the Cayman ones came on the Boxster, people would still be doing a Cayman 'upgrade' -- bcause they can.
3. Not even mentioning the badges.

I'd take my stock S over this one, even if it wasn't $30k+ cheaper.

I'm in agreement with the masses, here. I don't like the wood, the extra chrome trim, or the badges. Too much on the car.

It's a Boxster, not a Cayman, and should look like a Boxster.



lol@dcporsche99 Yep, but you barely beat me to it.

"Looking for that extra flare in the Boxster..."
Get a Boxster S

"...or perhaps a desire for a Cayman Roadster;"
Get a Boxster


"The original MSRP of this Boxster was $71,600.00; cost to replicate this car would be over $90,000.00."

So what exactly brought the total up $18,400? Oh right, a conversion at the dealership. Smart. Seems like it'd be cheaper to chop the top on a Cayman...

The Boxster is just not a woodgrain car imo. The rear diffusers looks terrible, especially a different color.
