Looking at getting a 987.2 Boxster S in white next month and am playing with the idea of adding some decals to the door after seeing a white Cayman with red decals coming past earlier.

Anyone done this to their car ? Just looking for some idea's.

If it's a white 987.2 the obvious example is a 987 Boxster Spyder.



And on a 987 Boxster

I personally think 2/3 length decals look better on the Boxster.

Rick at Highgate House is your man.....accept no substitutes. Lots and lots of people on here have used him and I have never seen anything but glowing praise.

Website looks a bit dated I grant you but really knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make sure you get the right product and can recommend people to fit. He'll send colour samples etc.

Cheers for the replies folks.

This is the car I'm getting :



And then I'm thinking of either something like this :



Or this (in red) :



I prefer the first one (white cayman) but I can't seem to find that on either of those websites mentioned above.

Are these aftermarket? They look the perfect size/length

Yes indeed they were from Design Stuff Online. The quality is excellent and they still look like like new. They were fractionally too long around the wheel arches but that was easily fixed with a scalpel blade and a metal ruler.

I think the 987 Boxster looks better with full length as per the Boxster Spyder as its a smooth surface.



The Cayman looks better 2/3 length as per the Cayman R.



Where as the 981 cars are more Cayman R like and so 2/3 length works.



On colour personally I'd go black rather than red as I think the white with black works best.

Before. I really dislike solid black wheels so I had to do something...


Wheels repainted in Mclaren Sparkle Grey and diamond cut by The Autowerks


Wheels


Graphite Grey Cayman R style decals ordered from USA...


Sam from Cargraphics applying them at Ashgood Porsche - he didn't like the bits that go in front of the front wheels but I really like them!


Car after decals

If you're referring to "The Flying Carrot", then thank you!! Just wish I'd had the decals fitted in time for my last trip to the South of France in October 2019 where after breakfast I found its nearly inverse French number parked...

Just a counter-point.

Stickers are very ‘marmite’. They do divide opinion and many don’t like them, myself included.
Reminiscent of the Halfords ‘go-faster’ stripes that boy racers used to stick on their cars.

Everyone knows it’s a Porsche, doesn’t need it blazened down the sides, and never seen a Porsche that looks better with stripes, (2.7RS the possible exception).

Just IMO, but I’m not the only one.
