Mine was a year old! The owner had plunked down around $70k and had it in his/her garage!

My '98 is Ocean Jade Metallic. I'm still trying to find out how many were actually imported in this color in '98.

Arctic silver +1. Aren't 99% arctic silver? That's why I bought mine. Figured there would be a ton of silver body panels available if needed.

Really I just love the color.

Did you know it used to be black

Wow... just saw that the OP of that thread turned it into a mattress ad.
Now it almost makes sense that it didn't make sense originally.

50% of my Boxsters are Arctic Silver with the red leather interior. I love that color combo.

My first Boxster was Arctic Silver (per standard Boxster buying procedure). The second is Black.

Zenith Blue and Arena Red are my favorites.

Hm, at that time i was starting of thinking i need a Roadster for the summer. Not shure what it should be. Did a test drive with an Audi TT, Honda S 2000, BMW Z3, SLK 320. Wasn't convinced. Test drove a Boxster - and yes! Went to the Porsche centre some months later and signed the sales contract. Car was delivered on 13.01.2003. And yes, it's arctic silver.

Regards
Markus

Colors? I thought they only came in silver? I have the +/- $800.00 optioned Arctic Silver Metallic. I like it.
