Where do I find this splitter

I saw this image of a splitter. Do any of you know where I can source it?

Looks like the one I have on my Boxster with a 996 GT3 front bumper cover . I purchased part # 996 505 986 91 and the fasteners were part # 999 507 497 40 .

wonder if this fits a stock 986 bumper? Would be a cool addition for roughly $100

I would add one also. This looks like a stock bumber not a gt3 cover to me.

Thanks for the response. Do you have an image of your front end that you can post?

When I first saw this image, I thought it was a stock S bumper as well, but upon further inspection of my ‘01 S, it is not.

The bumper pictured, is not the same as my stock, OEM, bumper on my ‘01 S. Close, but slightly different. I am not sure if that is due to the picture being a GT3, or a later year model 986 S.

I am trying to post an image of mine, but am having issues with file extensions.

The bumper pictured is the 2003+ 986 stock bumper. Search around and you'll find some people who have the 2003+ bumper with gt2 or gt3 lips installed. It works pretty well.

Well that certainly cleared up the confusion. I have a 2000S, wish that would work on my bumper like the look.

Great but Id like the link to the "roughly $100" splitter like that. That number comes up over $400
Am I missing something?

Go to your Porsche dealer and ask for prices of the 996 and 987 GT3 spkitters. From memory one is expensive and the other isnt.

I see the cheap one, $200, but it's doesn't look the same. Just a black plastic flap. O well got excited there for min.

I put an "All Fit" lip spoiler on my '02 base. Only 49.95 - I figured if it looked bad I'd just remove it. I'm happy with the results. Looks better in person.

I'm not sure Id like the anti-gravity effects of your splitter. How the hell do you get it off the ceiling?
