    No 030 suspension option??

    I did not notice anywhere in the preliminary US order guide a listing for a non PASM sport suspension option. Any idea if this is a permanent situation or if one will become available as the option list is increased? Assuming there will be no practical way of modifying the PASM for quite a while, I might prefer getting the base suspension and waiting for Cross or Bilstein to come up with an aftermarket solution.

    Re: No 030 suspension option??

    I noticed the same.
    Maybe there will be a more sporty suspension outside the US. The 997 is available with a -20mm + LSD sport suspension outside the US.

    Re: No 030 suspension option??

    Noticed that myself, was looking to spec lowered sports suspension on my new 987. Anyone shed some light on this?

    Right now Boxster rumors and infos just started to arrive here...we get so much, we try to seperate the truth or very likely things from the gossip.
    There might be another suspension option later on but I'm not sure if it will be the 20 mm chassis with LSD.

    Right now, the best choice for the Boxster is PASM. Even with an aftermarket suspension kit, it will be very difficult to obtain the same stability, driveability and overall well adapted setup.
    But if somebody knows for sure he won't be happy with the PASM because of height or maybe because it really isn't sporty enough (and trust me, you can be very fast with PASM...), he should go for the standard chassis because otherwise there is not much chance of installing an aftermarket coilover kit or whatever.

    Thanks RC - Thats kind of what I thought. I tend to track and autocross cars frequently, so a firmer non-corrective suspension would be best for me.
