photoshop?

Hey you photoshop experts, I always wanted to see what the Boxster would look like with a Taco rear spoiler, but obviously smaller and more subtle (no wider than the rar trunk). The pedestal rear spoilers on the Boxster aero kit never looked right imho. Some have put nice looking rear spoilers on track prepared Caymans.
I think like the Carrera it can look nice without it or with one, if done tastefully. From the side with aero front bumper and side skirting the Boxter rear end looks like it sits too high off the ground, perhaps a Taco type soiler mike give it a sort of rake.

that looks terrrrible. Strange, because the taco wing looks good with all the other aero (bumper, skirts) on this 911 and many Boxsters have the same including these wheels. Just imagine this car without the roof and it could be a Boxster.
