Miata vs 986 : settled

Came across this when I googled 986 body kit images. Not what I was expecting.

It's cool that someone aspires to a greater sports car but . . . . really?

That's a super rare Porsche. Not many front engine Boxsters out there and zero IMS issues in that model.

Comes with a template to show you where to cut the side vents.

They probably made those kits when a 986 cost more than a Miata.

Even has a hardtop, making it suitable for driving year-round.

They need to install Fred's projectors. But that would be an insult to Fred.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Besides the money involved, that must have been a lot of labor hours.
