    Re: Facelift update pics

    I like it. I don't think the change is very significant, but I like it.

    Can someone photoshop out the tape from the front headlamps and rear tailights??

    Re: Facelift update pics

    Not too bad - I just hope those new lights don't give the car the typical Japanese car "Tokyo by night" effect

    Re: Facelift update pics

    I am on the fence. The exterior changes seem rather minor, and I am curious as to how much Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) will change output. Some have published that the Boxster will produce 270 horsepower, but noone is publishing anything for the Boxster S, which my guess will go up to approximately 320 horsepower. 25 extra horsepower is significant, but not significant enough, if I do not like what I see on the outside. Oh well, we shall all find out by September 13th.

    Re: Facelift update pics

    I know very little about DFI, but all these tweaks tend to increase mostly hp, and not much much torque. HP is great for top speed and all-out, high-rpm driving, but around town what you want is torque. I'd like to see how much extra torque DFI yields.

    Re: Facelift update pics

    I agree about wanting torque for everyday driving. In regards to DFI, there does not appear to be any downside. 13% more power while achieving 15% better fuel consumption, what's not to like? I am just hoping that Porsche preserves or enhanes the great styling of the Boxster, otherwise I will be scrambling to get the last of the '08's, while the styling and new technology add-ons get worked out.

    The pics of the rear almost look like its a 986 mule. Apart from the idea of LED lights I prefer the current design. Better mpg with a slight increase in power can be no bad thing.
