you know, instead of buying a hard-top kit for the boxster, u might as well just buy a cayman...

But after thinking... Boxster is better at driving, its mid engined, and it actually doesnt look that bad. It also can have hard-top kit, beceause i dont like convirtables.
And at least, if a standard car look inatractive there is always a visual tunning.
So wow, i changed my mind. Styling is not everything.
