I think you should get the mac schnell. Also, you can go through this old thread for other ideas...

That's what mine says, "Mach Schnell." For the German impaired, it means hurry up in the vernacular.

Ney ney ney! Does a Porsche actually need more badging? My opinion a Porsche needs less, always. I think the crest on the front is all that is really needed. However, every car that I have had, I have always looked to remove as much "signage" as possible.

Too much signage...most know it's a Boxster and those that don't, could care less.

If I were purchasing a new model, I would opt for badging delete...Porsche puts way too much on the rear of the cars these days.

OP, I like your sticker. I got the same but it reads PORSCHE (arc shape) in 90% gray over black.

I think a sticker in that Boxster font that says "Hybrid" in red would be fun

Why not the old "don't laugh, your daughter may be in here (if she's not too fat, it's a small car)" if we're putting stickers on our Porsches now?

If this Porsche's a rockin, don't come without M030 kit!

Bad cop, no doughnut?

I brake for IMS failures

Cash magnet

Gas, grass, or IMS. No free rides!

Base but heavily modded......

Haters gonna hate!

If the spoiler is up, then it's doubtful anyone would be tailgaiting at 75+mph.

I disagree sir! Crest on the front, model number on the back.
A Porsche with a blank rear looks weird. That delete stuff only works on slick Audi, BMW and Merc tuner cars.

Most Porsche people maybe. Otherwise I would bet that 9 in 10 non-car people today don't know that the Boxster and Carrera Cab are two different cars.

I have lost count at the number of times people asked me if my car "was a 911" or those who didn't know that "Boxster" was the name of a Porsche. And out of say 30 compliments maybe one will be "Nice Boxster", all others are "Nice Porsche" or "Nice car".
Which is partly why I don't mind the PORSCHE lettering on rear trunk with the model number. Unless they know that these cars have unique fender and rear quarter panels the model number isn't enough for them to go on.
But mixing the classic PORSCHE font with that caligraphy model name thing Porsche love to do on Panamera looks belts and suspenders in colors that don't match.
