Negative. I would rather see racing stripes from hood to trunk.

i think the car has to look like that to put the stripes. the car has to be modified done up, to be able to put stripes. you can just put them on a plain base looking boxster. slam it, rim it, body kit, n then stripes..............

very true you don't need to put 50 grand into it. but if you put 50 grand into it, you can do anything and it will look good was my point....

i think our cars look good just simple. keep the stickers off, your car looks so good! you were talking about attention, well you'll get lots of attention with those stripes. it's like putting racing stripes on a mini.

The stripes look ugly to me. They look like you had it parked under a truck and scraped the paint off.

Its just my opinion but I think it looks like something you would buy at Wal-Mart next to the furry steering wheel covers.

Seems like a difficult area to place stickers/decals. At any rate, it makes it look like the car is wearing a cape (and I'm pretty sure that's not cool -but decide for yourself).

RUF seems to be losing the plot. I don't like those accents on their car and I really wouldn't like them on mine either. They did the same thing with the other RUF 987 orange with black striping.
Seems out of place on a Porsche. More like what you would see on an import tuner.
The Martini Cinzano stripes on the old 911's were cool but then again graphics on competition cars always seems appropriate.
