Will This Setup Fit A Boxster Dash?

Recommended Posts

The "hooded" photo in the original post is from 996 & 03/04 Boxster.

The "winged" photo above is 97-02 Boxster.

As far as I know, the trim piece difference is just that - a trim piece difference. I con't see why Porsche bothered to change the 03-04 Boxster to look like a 911, I prefer the original Boxster look.

re: Only 1 part to stock rather than 2.

That argument would be more convincing if they hadn't already gone to the expense of developing two different styles that have to be stocked anyway. Plus the markup vs shipping on these parts must be quite attractive to the dealership.

I might grant you the argument if you were talking about the dash board with the in-dash Glove compartment. If I were a dealer network, I'd only stock the glove box version and talk folks into an upgrade when it needs replacing.

Porsche found another way to add cup-holders in the car - that's what the new shape is for: by reducing the fan-openings, a narrow opening is created that holds the cup-holders without taking a slot from the unit.

Moving the buttons from angled to straight is merely cosmetic.

Yes it will fit in the boxster - both 996 and boxster (all years) cut-outs (the opening in the dash) are identical. But you will need the cup-holder insert or like trim-pieces to cover the gap. The original boxster opening is smaller than the one in the picture.

BTW - they use them for the '02 and newer boxsters also. Below from an '03 Boxster - you can see the entire assembly, including the cup-holders on top.
