    CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    What do you guys think about a frontbumper for the 987 styled like this:

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    Forgot to add the pic...

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    any more other pics?

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    why bother when the stock front bumper is so perfect?

    No sorry... it's not real, but a photoshop "creation" and I only did the front view so far.

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    Nice photoshop! I'd say on the Cayman this would be a definite improvement, on the Boxster I think the current front design is a little more fitting for the car.

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    That is one excellent photoshop .
    I think the stock bumper gives the car a more harmonious look, but the bumper in the pic looks very aggressive.

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    1- It would look better than the Cayman's stock fascia, but not the Boxster's

    2- I think that the side radiator intake cutouts are not large enough for either vehicle

    Well, Porsche AG had this styling on the CGT prototype and I think that it looks even better than the stock CGT frontbumper (see pic below, which features the CGT prototype bumper).

    The version on the first pic features slightly modified dimensions of the CGT prototype bumper to work with the 987's design. I am seriously considering to have a limited amount of these bumpers built.

    Here's a version with slightly enlarged air intakes... This actually "enforces" the "evil grin" of the CGT... something the original 987 bumper totally lacks.

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    Actually what you need there is a Carrera GT style headlights on the 987! I have seen a Cayman photoshopped with the GT headlights, and it is stunning! Anyone knows if there is an aftermarket one?

    Since the GT headlights go fluently from the fender into the frontbumper you would at least need a newly designed frontbumper and new fenders. It surely would look stunnig though... but it would be pretty much a CGT replica. Thus you would lose the Boxster's originality and become a CGT-replica driver.

    Yeah, I could potentially live with changing the bumper for the more agressive intakes, but adding the CGT style headlights makes it sound like someone who can't afford the CGT thinks their 987 is comparable. Driving a Boxster mimicing a CGT? I'd avoid even the appearance of that situation...

    Good point guys. Never thought of it that way. I certainly would not want to be seen in that vain. But then again, there is no way I can afford a Carrera GT in Australia. First of all it cannot be road registered as it's steering wheel is on the wrong side for us, and secondly even if you just buy one for track days, it cost over $1m!

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    I really like it. How about doing a side angle sometime (I know its a lot of work...)

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    mediocre

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    It's always interesting and entertaining to see these variants. I suspect they do the same thing at Porsche design, as we have seen in the transformation of 986 to 987.

    Re: CGT style frontbumper: Opinions?

    Well, that's a good Boxster Aerokit idea. Porsche America?.... are you taking notes?
