997 Style Bumper

As the forum's self proclaimed "body kit guy", I thought that I would share a recent discovery regarding a 997 style front bumper for the 986 boxster. Its a German based company called Prior Design. From what I can glean from their site, their designs appear to be high quality TUV certified products at reasonable prices . Bold as they are, I thought that some members who are considering a facelift for their vehicle might like them .

Agreed. Schweeeet!

Although the kit is for the 996. I see nothing for specific to us 986 owners. Will the rears fit ?

From what I remember, the 996 and 986 skirts are not a dual-fit.. I believe one of them is slightly longer than the other.

You're correct on the issue of the side skirts . The boxster actually requires longer ones .
However, I was informed by a representative that they have skirts to fit the boxster.
