Default Lets see those Mk1 Front Bumpers

What are our options for the front bumper? I have seen people put a turbo front bumper on an mk2 996 is it possible to do so on an mk1 car?

If you have a nonstock one.. let's see what you have!

No factory options for a turbo bumper on a MK1 they turbos all have MK2 headlights.

Aftermarket options exist.

I can't get over how amazing MK1 aero 996s look. As crazy as it sounds I kinda prefer the MK1 aero to the huracan its parked next to.

Keep me in mind if you have any intentions of letting your 996 go

I've always been partial to the RUF front bumper which fits the 996.1 style better than the turbo style bumper imo. Here's one on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Porsche-Box...UAAOSwTLpbO91H

I really like the way that bumper looks from that angle but then again not at some of the angles in the ad lol.

I agree, one of the best looking bumpers I've seen!
