To make this a street car part, the mold would need to be severely modified, more frames added, sound proofing, glass windows, door seals, a completely new shape around the windows to match the Boxster window shape instead of 996 etc. The price of the top would exceed the value of the cars it is made for, and that just isn't very practical for the manufacture or the consumer.
ah that's too bad, maybe we can outsource to china? but you're right, no trunk access would kill it for most consumers.
