New 550 Anniversary Spyder Edition Boxster for 2004

with a bit more hp(266), new color(Carrera GT silver), and a double-decked exhaust tip(which I like).




Here are more pics.

I like it... But, I truly don't think that the differences are that extreme... Subtle, but then again why over do perfection?

Wait, are you serious, is that really a chocolate brown interior? (I'm guessing so because the car will also have a brown roof) I saw a picture of a Carerra GT in Christophorus a few months ago with a chocolate brown interior and it looked AWESOME!

If you don't think it looks good in this picture I could agree with you, but only because it isn't nearly as nice as the picture in Christophorus. Trust me, if this is what I think it is, then it will look great in person.

Too bad, though, that this edition is virtually all about looks. Too bad Porsche didn't make a turbo WAY back in the 50's so a turbo Boxster would be needed to make this "authentic"!

Great, I did have the most poweful porsche roadster on the road,

Until this thing came along. Now I want 264 instead of "just" 258hp. I wish we could just get a 300hp boxster and get this over with. Too bad porsche doesn't want to give the customers what they want. But, what can you do.

Well, there is one thing you can do... Make your own unique 300hp boxster :-)

That is true, Iwas thinking of of doing some mods next year

I will definately consult you before I do anything. I can see that you have quite extensive experience on modifying boxsters. How do you like your mods? How about that 3.2L, its pretty nice isn't it. How do you like the 3.2 compared to the 2.7 you had?

FYI Adam, you can twin Turbo the 986 and give it about 450 Hp in the long run. (Me still saving my cash for it )

Hey Jfmiller, I did not know about the twin turbo setup.

I imagine it costs a handful, just curious, what does it cost? I'm guessing around 8-10k. I've never heard of aftermarket turbo setups for the box, only superchargers, but then again I know basically nothing since I'm a box newbie. I want to upgrade my 03 S when I make alittle $$, but I've heard its a tough proposition doing it yourself. I dont want to give the dealer $1,000 to do it. The gemballa sounds like it is very nice setup. What did you say you were making at the rear wheels? I bet you would probably have my S beat. Hey btw, are you going to tweeks porsche fest? I only live 40min away, so I'll definately be there. I would like to see what thing sounds like and what it can do.
Adam.
