wow, alot of time and money went into that car, i think the wing is too much. But i have not seen a wing on a boxster that i like.

But every one (including myself) over mods their car beyond some peoples taste. As long a he loves it then i am fine with it.

Get out and drive.

Horrible in every respect. Why do Porsches continue to attract owners that do this kind of garbage? Poor car.

I like the hood a lot, reminds me of an 80's 911.

The wing looks like crap and probably increases the drag co-effecient enormously.

Yeah, I noticed the Smart car, but what kind of car is right in front of it? It's nearly as small as the Smart Car....

Also, it looks like this pic might have been taken at a wheel shop. Notice the wheels mounted up high on the pole? And the fact that every car in the picture (except the white van) has aftermarket wheels?

This car looks like he gave it to the "pimp my ride" TV show. Especially the front bumper.

Did you ever drive one?

I always take it as a rental when I go to Munich.
Great car, lots of space inside (a friend of mine is 6 1/2 feet and he bough one after he test drove my rental). Can't beat the car for finding parking space in downtown Munich. Yes, it's no Porsche or not a drag racer, but I looove the car.
The only problem are the long shift lags when you put the car in automatic transmission mode, but it's fine if you manual shift it.
