Goodbye Base. Hello S.

...it was an offer I couldn't refuse (to give to a seller of a Boxster S. Ha)

The Base was an awesome car. I took really good care of it and we had lots of fun.
... but then this S came on the market.
It is a 2000, well cared by a fellow p-car enthusiast. It has some not-so common goodies like a supercharger kit and lsd. Came with a hardtop, ROW M030, GT3 LCAs...
Took it to the track a few times and wow. It pulls really well for a 986.
Goodbye Base. Hello S

Danke for the compliments. I haven't autocrossed it yet, but look forward to the next event to see how the the SC+LSD will do out of the tight corners.
I'm also curious as to how it will behave (under/over steer) at the very limit.
The SC is a self-oiling ProCharger and the kit was by Imagine Auto circa 2007, I believe.

I did some checking in on this. To me they look like Porsche OEM Aerokit 1 Skirts. Those are not cheap to buy. The lowest price I could find on them is $320.37 per side skirt.

I really like those, they don't have the "twist" most other skirts have. Picture of a Boxster with Aerokit 1.

Thanks for the info on the skirts.
I'm married now, so I haven't chased them in a long while.

?? I'd like to guess 260-270hp at the wheel, but don't know for sure. I plan on making a trip to the Dyno in the not-so-distant future.
