Smile Finally Back!

Been a Porsche fanatic for a number of years- had 1979 924, finally couldn't afford to keep it running, had a 1986 928, same issue. Always wanted a newer one ( in this century) Finally, found one I could afford- a slightly modified 2002 Boxter- apparently one of a kind.
Hope to modify it more and hope you all out their can help!
See pictures.

You have some nice bits on that Man!!! wowwwww!!!! My dream Boxster would be Like your but in black only, with the tail pipe flush to the bumper, lowered on 19" with the tires kissing the fenders and ditching the rear spoiler.

Nicely done. congrats!!

"Slightly modified?" - I love it! I'm not sure (actually i am certain) I could pull it off myself, but I love it. You should share some pictures with the new Boxster Outlaws facebook group.

Hmm, cool car. At first I thought it reminded me of this:


...Then I found the old thread I had seen it in:

Any time you go extreme, there's going to be lovers and haters.

I don't know.....it looks pretty stock to me Actually it's a little on the flashy side for my taste, but I think it's pretty cool. Have fun with your new ride

If you bring it to a Porsche concours, you’ll be competing in the JC Whitney division.

Sorry, just doesn’t appeal to me. At all.

Thanks, I was wondering about the history of the car- it appears I am the second buyer after the mods were done.

Funny you should say that, the car did not appeal to me at first, but when you see it in person and see that it is one of a kind its pretty cool.

Some parts I like, others I donít.


But I really really love the yellow stripe on the rear lid! I feel like a more subtle boxster with skirts and the same spoiler with that yellow stripe would look really clean.

When I look at my Boxster sitting lonely in the garage, I am consistently struck by the fact that while there are styling aspects in the lines and curves of the car, all the vents and bulges and holes and etc have a purpose for being on that car in that spot.

I do like the front splitter. If angled right, it could add a bit of balance when the rear spoiler (Hidden until it is needed) is extended and there is less than a 1/2 tank of fuel

I am reminded of the Fast and Furious.

BUT I can go eat doo doo because just because I like Subtle does mean other don't equally like flash.

Enjoy the ride.

Congrats on a unique Boxster. I’ve seen your car’s pics in various ads on the web. I’m in the subtle column for my own cars but I still appreciate the work that went into this car. Great fit and finish, serious $$$. Looking forward to seeing where you take it from here. Maybe not the car for a Porsche concours, but definitely could hold it’s own at Autorama or hanging with Dom and the gang.

Seen them all, but I’m a fan of the first three F&F movies

Hm, in general this looks like a Gemballa Boxster GTR 500 Bi-Turbo body kit with some strange mods.

If it would be a real Gemballa Boxster GTR 500 Bi-Turbo it would be a rare car.
