The first picture is the window sticker from a 987 S, 6 speed.

The second picture is from a 997, but note it is a tiptronic.

It is said that the 6 speed manual transmissions for both are made by the same company. :o

What is the difference between the 2 stickers?

Uh... the Boxster has a higher percentage (60%) German parts that the Carrera (55%)?

(Even though the Boxster is made in Finland and the Carrera in Germany :lol: :lol: :lol: )

The 997 transmission is made in Japan vs Germany for the 987.

Very good. It is said that the 987 Boxster S and 997 6 speed transmissions are made by the Japanese company AISIN. Don't think this is true. I think the Boxster manual transmissions (which say made in Germany) are still made by Getrag, and the 997 manual transmissions (which say made in Japan) are made by AISIN.


Both 6 speed transmissions use to be made by the German company, Getrag.


I have been told the Cayenne has an AISIN transmission, and the window sticker says 'Made in Japan', just like the 997 sticker.

Yes, my 986 red clip on the 987 at the new Boxster open house at Carlsen today.

Next, I will try to put my 986 humps on a 987. Then the 986 hardtop to see how the 987 side window glass has changed

Seems like the new cup holder thing might be good after all....

Not a heater core. Plus I do not think the CD changer and navigation unit would be happy if it was.

Different car, same black box. This car has the CD changer and navigation unit.

Nope. But in fact when I looked under the drivers seat I did not see a control unit in the usual place. And neither is the relay tray.

Hard to take a decent picture under the seat.

The black box is the evaporative emissions system. Its the charcoal filter and everything built into one unit, instead of spread out all over the car as in previous cars.
