New Boxster + Martini stripes = cool

sorry can't resize on my current device. Sure someone else will.

I think it would look better on a white 981

Wow - the red 981 looks similar to a Ferrari California from the front 3/4 angle....maybe it's because it's red.

Umm...I would buy that Martini look Box in a heartbeat.

Was that from the factory, or did someone just do that?

Hennessy Porsche posted these pics up yesterday. They were at Skip Barber in Birmingham.

If you are on Facebook, you can "like" Hennessy and see all the pics. The Gulf painted 981 was very cool.

Still.....the one thing thats going on mine upon deliver are those damn amber side markers...come on USA, why are we still making Euro imports do this?

Gulf livery is more awesome than I imagined. The white mirrors is a nice touch.

I might have done the wheels in the Gulf blue with some gun metal on the inside of the spokes.
Doing the orange parts on vinly wrap to over a silver, white or black 986/987 would be prettty cool too.

p.s.

The tapatalk phone app works really well for the 986forum. I downloaded it on my old phone but never bothered to launch it until
I upgraded my phone (Razr Maxx <---insane battery life).

Hate to say it, but ditto that. You just have to sell your sole to the devil to buy one. Damn they are expensive now.
