Tail Light Questions

Hi been lurking and learning for a few months and pick up my first P-car, a '02S tomorrow.

Anyway, I'm seeing what appears to be different tail light versions and even after a search can't decipher the info. How many different versions are there? For example I see this one which looks like a stock tail with either translucent red vinyl cut-out over the yellow signal or painted with metal cast maybe?






Then there is this one.






Are these the ones in the picture above?



And finally, these ones I really like. What version are these?






Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers,
Rick

I have those same tail lights that are on the bottom one. I got them through e-bay. They are called euro-tail lights or something like that. I like them. The LED's are very bright. Looks great too!

Just get the Boxster already man! You'll love it much more than the Tiburon!

BTW, I still have the normal tails with amber turn lenses. Eventually I'm planning on going clear, and will also replace the sidemarkers with clear. My headlights and front turn signals are already clear... so I'm part of the way there already.

I like the euro tail lights too, I even ask a friend to put his euro lights on mine just to see and it look really good but i got scared of how much will it cost me to replace the LED's.

Congrats on the purchase.
I'm a little worried for you though, based on the weather.
Plans still on?

like this:
That's likely what I'd start with and put my money towards Litronics. I did my current car with the translucent spray paint called 'Metalcast', but then went with a translucent self adhesive red vinyl that is much better. I was suprised not to see that available for the Box. Maybe I can make that happen.

Thanks for the help everyone.
Cheers,
Rick

I used MetalCast red spray to paint them all red, I love it. Makes the ocean blue paint on my box look alot darker and richer somehow.
