Kind of fugly in my opinion, but it seems like a valiant effort towards producing a limited edition model that is Porsche caliber (no Eddie Bauer or King Ranch edition for the Boxster)...

fugly? understatement why on earth would you put those 911 round lights on a futuristic concept like the 1993 Boxster?
But those silver accents on the GT3 seats remind me I should try the Ebay guy about paiting them to match the silver center console. I asked bumperplugs do paint those seat belt loops and I got a quote of $800!

what a wonderful place for a gas cap - that car will be all dinged up the first time it goes to the gas station...

They said it's a 97 but has a 2.7l engine... wonder if it's a mistake.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

I didnt think it was that bad either. I have never been a fan of red interior and I do think the gas cap is in a terrible spot. That gas cap may not be functional, I dont know. Overall I liked it.

The article said it was functional - I had the same thought and had to scroll through it to find out.

The panel gaps look like genuine GM quality parts... sorry, I'm still astonished about the gaps on a C6 I owned.

With the exception of the taillights, I don't hate it.

Did I see leather buckles on the back? Little silly lookin' for me... Looks like someone got crazy with a glue gun and old parts on that ride.
