Well, sure looks like it physically fits.

From aesthetics, I think it appears a bit heavy, particularly for a Boxster.
(in full disclosure, I had a 997 w/ this aerokit front bumper and though it look fantastic on the car... there was always a touch of it looking a bit heavy in my mind even on my vehicle. It became blatantly apparent when I first put the factory painted lip on but was softened much when I put the black 'flex' lip on).

But if you like for the 9x6 then go for it!

Good luck

Was it a KDB brand polyurethane? I was wondering about the fitment of their bumpers.

Yeah, that’s a whole lotta bumper cover for the Boxster. Might look a bit out of place?

I've been thinking about that but actually it's about the same size as a stock 986 bumper 👇
My stock bumper:


The same bumper in red:

SORRY! i actually like the bumper and think it works well with the direction you are taking your car. i've always felt the look as porsche designed it has a bit of 'underbite' however. so, more of a comment on the aesthetics of the porsche design, although i'm sure the aero is very good.
