integration of 996/986 parts ?

Recommended Posts

looking to do some body mods to my 2000 Boxster S and wondered if I could use some 996 parts?

Do the side skirts from a pre-facelift 996 shape car fit a pre-facelift boxster? also are the front ends interchangable? I'm assuming the rear bumper/cover isnt due to the different shapes?

Seems like the aerokit type options for the boxster are limited and wondered if I could look at 996 or any other model parts as well? (aftermarket rather than oem)

Also rather like the speedart wing for the 987 but don't know if the rear end and automatic wing are the same? as it appears that the new speedart wing replaces the auto wing so all needs to match up on the 986 as well?

any guidance from those in the know would be great before I pace any orders for gear.

Was also looking at a yellow replacement glass widow soft top as the car is speed yellow. does any one have any experience of light coloured soft tops at all? think it might look cool as I don't have a hard top but don't want to spend out a load of cash only to find it looks off colour after a while?

sorry for all the questions but looking to spend quite a bot of money (for me at least) and don't want to make any cock ups when theres such a wealth of knowledge on here :notworthy:

thanks guys/gals

986 and 996 were designed identical from the (front) seats forward

Front bumpers are interchangeable.

Turbo bumper parts don't fit either model - different headlight shape means different fenders and bumper covers.

I have no opinion about a Speed Yellow bumper top, except I imagine it would need regular cleaning beside the window where it folds. I pretty much avoid top up driving so don't see top color as significant.

Thats great, many thanks for your reply

since asking the question I've been doing some surfing and at the moment I'm considering a turbo style front produced by 'design911' specifically for the boxster, GTR side skirts (ones with the vents) and a gemballa rear lip

I've just asked them if the new speedart wing for the 987 will fit the 986 and am awaiting a reply, if not then I'll have to re-think the wing/spoiler. its a shame the back end of the boxster is so different from all the other models as the wing/spoiler options are rather limited

in comparrison.

I have a spare rear lid so I could mould a spoiler on of some sort (not too bad working with f/glass) but as said options are limited, with the angles of '911' wings being so different there wouldnt be much left once cut back to suit the 986 rear end.

unfortunately living in the UK 'top up' driving is a regular occurance, so the colour is quite a significant factor unfortunately.
