That looks sweet ......... not the sticker . I would think that mods like that, as long as they have been installed by an OPC, would have the full 4 yr factory warranty.

Cheers, good find

It should have a 3.8L carrera S engine for that much coin. I can't believe that they want that much for a boxster S with some bolt on's and a carrera gt look alike body kit. I'm not a fan of the looks. Porsche 997 turbo please.

With today's exchange rate that is $129,666 US dollars. So that's a nice discount for us Yanks!

Holy cow! Nothing special inside and I'm not a fan of that pointy frontend treatment, but the engine intakes look good though.

Thanks for the other pics. And yeah, that's going to sit, unless they decide to bail and take a loss ...... Somebody could probably pick that up on the cheap at some point.

Cheers

I love everything about that car except for the front sides of the bumper...get rid of the points and that car looks like perfection. Price....that is friggin insane!!

Would love to find some body panels like that for my car!

I LOVE the rear body panels/ intakes!!!

Ug!

So let's see, bolt-on body panels and a few bolt-on engine parts, and that doubles the price? I would guess all those parts add up to less than $10k -double that if you want to pay retail.

Customize the vehicle to the point of significantly narrowing down your potential buyers, then cut that number in half for people that can actually afford it, then cut that number in half by people that lack common sense to take this over a plethora of cars that are far more superior/better looking/better performing... smart move.

It only takes one sucker I guess.

My list of cars that makes this Boxster meaningless:
GTR
M3, M5
GT2, 911 Turbo, any 911, Cayman S
Z06
R8
Used 355

I am a new Boxster owner and I am still learning about pcars, but aren't they charging about $60k for that body kit? i know TechArt is expensive, I just bought some TA side skirts for $1,500 but damn $129k seems a LITTLE high.

To each their own as far as style but that doesn't work for me.

Hey! though you could be right.

I like the front bumper and wheels, but wheel flares on a Box always look tacked on to me. The flares on this kit are the worst ever.

That is just senseless.

What a waste of time & money ... I am surprised that the dealership even took it back as a trade-in. Can't wait to see the character who buys this on the forum ...

"Hey guys, I just bought the coolest boxster ever! ...

hahaha
and the worst part is that all that stuff just bolts on, if it was maybe molded in or something, but just glued/bolted hahah


and btw, they could have at least painted the car green

Porsche for people with no taste and lots of $$

This looks horrible!

the car looks like it was put together like a jig saw puzzle. the rear fender looks so artificial and ricey...Id be embarased in that car. the wheels look good on a mustang, very similar to Foose wheels.

Damn, and to think the 911 I was drooling over at the dealer was only $105k.

Seriously, for that much money for a Boxster it better drive itself. I honestly like the way my plain ol' Boxster looks better personally.
