I don't like the "spears" decals but I like everything else.

Can you post bigger pics?

Apparently it must not rain in the Piedmont as they've removed the convertible top altogether and rendered the side windows useless.

Don't get my negativity wrong, as the renditions are good looking, I just find a greater beauty when cars are modified but remain functionally viable.

There's a few other cars I'd buy with my spare $231,000.00

So how would you pump fuel into the car without having the fuel hose all over the fender?

Now thatís a messy situation.

Who puts a gas tank opening on the hood of a car?

I'm with SD on this one....Very impractical and definitely not "User Friendly".

Hey you guys, these Boxster are suposed to look more like the ORIGINAL 550 SPYDER. Which DID have the gas tank/opening in the midle of the hood on the car. Same as the rear "spears." It's suposed to be a retro style of that car. As for the windows, thats just the designer being creative.

If you want to see even better images of the black spyder go to this web site:

Better yet, just go to RUF's web site. THEY ARE STUDIO TORINO

Thanks for noticing. I went to the RUF shop where I live here in Dallas. I took some measurement off of the RK Spyder. They had it in thier show room. It's a 987 frame and not a 986, so I still had to make some adjustments. The shape of the rear on the 987 and 986 is slightly different. Especially around the tail lights. I used Adobe Illustrator to do a vector drawing on my computer then had my local Fast Signs cut the vinyl for me. I installed it myself. I used to work there in college, so I know how to install them. I did not want to have them painted on in case I decide to sell my car one day. They can be removed easily if I change my mind later.

Let me know if you want my Vector Artwork? I can e-mail it to you if you like. I was going to sell my designs on e-bay but never got around to it. You will need a shop that uses Adobe Illustrator to do thier cutting. Most all vinyl sign places use it.

$231,000? Screw that! I believe that's just enough for a C16 (as yer track car) and a Boxster with a 3.8 swap (as yer fun car).

The original Spyder! Notice the gas tank location, in the center.
