05 Boxster last picture

notice the upper part of the tail light (signal and reverse light) do not go all the way to the edge anymore, they are sculpted up toward the ends.

Did any of the test drivers approach you regarding your picture taking? Any comments when they saw your Boxster.

I know it's hard to top perfection but doesn't the view from the rear end of the new boxster look a whole lot like the 986?

Outside of the taillights I see very little difference.

Remember, there's a lot of "camo" on the back of these boxsters...might be that we aren't seeing something.

If that's the case, it might be a nice surprise. Otherwise, yes, I agree, it looks very similiar...but I'm willing to bet the end result will have slightly different lines, a little more aggressive. Mais qui le sait?

I was in my 04 Wrangler Rubicon when I took these pictures.

I sure wish I was in the Boxster at the time I took these pictures.

I probably would have more up close and personal pictures.
