Question Boxster Body Material

What material is the body of a 2000 Porsche Boxster S made of? I searched the web and found nothing.

The hood is made from high-tensile paper mache. All other body panels are carbon fiber wrapped in stainless steel.

Read this thread: High tensile steel components.

for things such as this:


The actual body panels, such as fenders and hood are steel.
