Great looking car the new Boxster, hope you are all enjoying them to the full. Brings back memories of picking up my Boxster in 2001, first Porsche for me. A quick cruise down the M11 from Cambridge and then top down loving the sound of the exhaust as the cam changed at about 3000 and 5500 revs. Met friends at a pub for lunch and sat and ogled the car I'd just bought. Good times.

Beautiful car. Does "3rd year warranty" mean Porsche only offers 2 years as standard. Given Kia offer 7 years that is truly shameful.

Couple of courtesy car iphone pics in red, for a contrast - seemed to attract a lot of attention?

Yes and the third year is just an insurance policy... There is a reason Porsche are such a profitable business. smile

Some people think the 981 in Red is a Ferrari!

I spotted the local demo smashed into pieces a few days ago, it used to look lovely in Guards Red!

Borrowed this from OPC Silverstone:









The ride quality is in another league from my 986.

Thanks for the thumbs up.
Alcantara, which is always my comfort preference.

Just a general observation/question: Why do some people drive roof down but windows up? Windows up looks naff; spoils the looks of driver and car. And if the answer is, it's draughty, you've bought the wrong car! My motto: when in town, windows down. Happy days.

That is a stunning colour combo. Loving the gloss wheels.

Congrats.
