The newer gauge cluster will not work in your car. See this Pelican DIY for more information: http://https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/90-ELEC-996_Cluster/90-ELEC-996_Cluster.htm

I am not sure why Porsche made the switch, but the LCD displays in the older clusters were prone to defects. It is possible that Porsche determined that the dot matrix displays in the newer design would not break as often.
