Old school with the fried eggs, but they're from a 996, and the slight difference in the bezel looks more premium than the original headlamps.

An amateur photog grabbed some snaps of my Boxster from Cars & Coffee and Cars und Kaffee a couple weeks ago.

I tracked him, Anthony Greene, down on IG and he sent me the pics.
His instagram is @theautorama

They show the road grime incredibly well.

Great minds, RE: Pegasus.

I like how the Cayman retrofit looks on this color.

Maybe someday...

hey, I saw you had one too. I like it - subtle nod to Porsche racing heritage (not that a full set of martini stripes wouldn't be cool too). the z-top is a must-have for me and yeah, seems to work that much better in arctic silver.

So official terminology is Z-Top.

Got it. lol

the first iteration was called the zeintop after the vendor. he was a flake and someone else is making them now (drop-shipping from china I believe) and has shortened the name to z-top. $3k + paint.

Yeah, just looked it up on eBay, holy wow!

Lol I don't think I'm ready to drop that kind of loot on this car.

Kind of saving up for a 1983 SC or a C4 964/993.

The look like 18" Cayman S wheels. There was a 17" version that came on some base Caymans I believe, something like 17x6.5 and 17x8, but they looked slightly different. OK just looked them up, looked like they are:

17x7 ET55 987.362.125.03
17x8.5 ET ?? 987.362.127.08

Here is one of the fronts - it almost looks like these wheels have good offsets for Boxsters, I've never seen this wheel in person before:

09-12 Porsche Cayman 987 7x17" ET55 Front Wheel OEM | eBay

Edit: from this Japanese Amazon page it looks like the rears might be ET 40. Good looking wheels
