Funny you should ask. Just last night I was remarking to my wife how the Boxster has a much better profile than a 911 Cab. Having said that, if I had the money, I'd have a turbo in the garage. And, if I had more money I'd have a late 80's 930 coupe right beside it.

Of the 3 shown.....
Front bumper of turbo with LED in grill is sexy
Add that to the boxster

Vents on turbo rear....add that to the boxster

While we're at it..take motor from turbo
Put it in boxster....
done...the perfect porsche boxster!

Darn they are starting to look so much alike!

Turbo from right front, Boxster from left rear

Personally, I think the Spyder is the best looking Porsche of ANY at this moment!

I've always thought the rears of all the later 911 variants looked too "humpy" in the back side; likely why I don't care for the look of Boxsters with the humps. Therefore, the best looking cab is the Boxster. Now when you compare coupes...different story.

I agree.

The Boxster S has more bells and whistles and options so we chose the Boxster S. For instance you cannot get a power top, Bose, XM Radio or ventillated seats on a Spyder. The Spyder is more of a car for the track versus a daily driver IMVHO.

But it is the best looking Pcar made today.

Ya that is what I was thinking...that hump is kindo like a insect...well at least in the picture . The tail does help hide it.
