The Boxster is such a chick car.

Anyways, it was really funny what happened to this poor chap at the Speedrun. For those who wernt there, he came in this Porsche on saturday afternoon and was royally kicked out of the SpeedRun for a number of reasons. He made some last minute calls trying to get in touch with everyone at Autocar butttttttttttt..........

funny how these cars are parked just like normal cars. with the top down even and nothing gets stolen out of them. no point stealing the car i know jus a weird thought. interiors looked like that car does not like being in the country. very very cheap and tacky.

This one appears to be an automatic. The one at Choksis was a manual and the paint was better

Yes,

Even i always think of the boxster, slk, new beetle and z3 as "UCLA collge girl" type of cars.

Anyway, i believe the car was actually bought for this guy's sister....but after she got married and moved away he got to keep the car
Not a bad upgrade (from a zen i think)!

Hell, chick car or not, someone gives you a Boxster...you take it!

Although if I was the guy getting it, I'd send it to the paint booth for a coat of a mean lookin mica black to go with my black wheels (with the chrome circumference)...

I don't think I can ever own a yellow car.

Anyways, we gotto give credit where its due...the boxster has been universally acclaimed for its handling and so has the Z3. However, the previous generation SLK was purely a poser!

Ugly......the yellow paint looks so dull.IMO the palio yellow looks much better.
And also the interiors.....not clean enough.
Not my type of car.......
Nevertheless,credit the pics.Nice detailed 1z.
Cya.
